With the popularity of chalkboard paint in kids' spaces, the dry erase board hasn't gotten much mileage lately. While the nostalgic look of a chalkboard is hard to beat, sometimes the practicality of a dry erase board makes more sense. Here's a simple way to customize one that not only gives it a bit of charm but also will help young ones with their penmanship.
This is a simple but effective project that can be achieved in no time at all and reap big rewards. Kersey at Momtastic has recreated a classic notebook page on a standard dry erase board by adding carefully spaced straight and dashed lines in the appropriate colors. She achieves this with a few Sharpies and a ruler. Just like that, you have a reusable penmanship practice board.
Kersey gets the boards at her local hardware store, which cuts custom sizes from large sheets. We think many playrooms or kids' spaces would look pretty good with one of these on the wall. Nicely done, Kersey!
