I thought I was excited when the Home Depot started selling chalkboard paint. Then came the dry erase board paint… oh, my gosh!! But today my teacher friend, Keri, shared a new product that will likely keep me up many nights thinking of different ways to use it. It’s vinyl chalkboard paper! Can you believe it? It works just like contact paper. You cut it into the size or shape you want, adhere it to any surface, write on it with liquid chalk, and then erase it with water. Amazing!
Keri cut strips of chalkboard sheets and used it to label containers in her classroom. She also used the sheets for a math station activity. Next year the kindergarten teachers at the school plan to use a Cricut machine to cut the sheet into shapes for name plates on lockers. Can’t wait to see what else they come up with.
I googled the sheets and they could be a little pricey- about $24 for 10 12×12 sheets. It’s made by a company called Wallies and can be purchased online at Walmart among other outlets (particularly scrapbooking companies) or Amazon.com.
If you have used vinyl chalkboard sheets to create an activity or have a creative idea of how to use the sheets, please leave a comment and share.
