Amanda’s DIY Chalkboard

We received another great DIY project for children from our friend Amanda. She posted this DIY chalkboard on her blog Learning As We Go.

But before I show you the chalkboard, I think sharing little Evan’s Joe Dirt costume from this weekend is needed. Friends, that is a mullet wig for toddlers. Amanda distracted him from taking it off by initially giving him a popsicle which the neighbors mistakenly thought was a corn dog to go with the costume. Awesome.

Okay so back to DIY…It started as an unused homemade tv stand that was sitting in the garage, almost forgotten.

Amanda offers step by step instructions in the original post.


And now a quick word from our sponsors!

Thanks for playing,
