As Easter is this weekend and the weather forecast is looking horrible why not create a fun game for the kids at home.
This DIY project is so easy, inexpensive and so fun for the kids.
What you need:
- A clean surface board (Home Depot)
- Chalkboard paint
- Paint roller
- Cotton balls
- Black pen
- White construction paper
- Hot glue gun & Glue
- Double sided tape
The board should be completely smooth to give you the best surface for your chalkboard. If you need to do a light sanding before starting to paint.
Paint on the first coat and let fully dry, once completely dry apply your second coat. You might feel like you can even do a third coat depending on the wood you choose and that’s totally fine just make sure to let the coats fully dry in between painting.
Once your chalkboard is fully dry take a piece of chalk and cover the entire chalk board with the chalk, this helps prime the chalkboard and prevent your drawings from sticking for longer than you want. Once you have done that take a wet cloth and wipe it completely. Now you are ready to draw your game on the board.
As for the bunny tails I just cut circles out of a heavy construction paper and glued cotton balls to the one side to look more like a tail, on the side without a cotton ball write the child’s name and a piece of double sided tape so you can tell who the winner is and so it sticks to the chalkboard. 😉
This chalkboard has so many uses other than just a pin the tail on the bunny game you can use it for whatever your heart desires. We decided to frame ours and use it in our kitchen for a meal planner, grocery board and to organize our week. It works great and when we aren’t using it to organize our crazy Schedules we let Harlow draw on it still.
Good luck and have fun ! XOXO
