Our newest addition to our outside playground is the rock-edged blackboard.
I love having a place where children can come and use good quality, vibrant, rainbow-hued chalk to make their own drawing creations.
Sometimes, when the hussle and bussle of play is just too much, or they are having a quiet, contemplative type of day, drawing is just the tonic.
Why limit that to paper?
You can buy chalkboard paint at any good hardware store.
It is as simple as painting it on a prepared surface (just as you would prep any surface ready to be painted with sugar soap and sandpaper) then waiting for it to dry.
I love Lyra Chalks for their sheer vibrancy!
Rainbow brights, share your lights. Here we come…
And if you want some chalkboard drawing inspiration, why not stop by chalkboard resources ?
