Super cute idea...
My friend, Jennifer, made these super cute magnet/chalkboards for all the little girls in our Daisy troop. Aren't they adorable?? She painted them first with magnet paint, then added a coat of chalkboard paint on top. Yesterday at the Daisy meeting, the girls made their own magnets and Abbey has been playing with hers non-stop since she brought it home. My friend is seriously crafty! John hung Abbey's board up in her room last night, but he hung it low enough that she could take it down to write on. She's sitting in the floor doing "math" right now. So stinkin' cute!
I found directions last week for making homemade chalkboard paint. There are so many things you can do with it...I'm thinking of trying this soon because that board has me so inpsired. Click here for the paint directions.
*UPDATE*--The chalkboard paint directions are for a very small amount of paint, and therefore a very small project! Try this link for a larger project.
