Back to school is in full swing here at the Crafty household. T is in Cross Country (more time consuming than I expected), B is in volleyball and is participating in her school’s stage crew for the Winter play plus Girl Scouts starts up in October for her. Lu is in preschool now and her schedule just added a load of stuff also. To be honest, I thought having all three in school now would be easier. Yeah….not so much.
We decided that a LARGE activity board with a whiteboard was very much needed to keep track of all our schedules. So we made a list, took stock of what we had at home and headed to Walmart.
To read about my shopping trip check out my thisMoment :
Materials for our project:
- Elmer’s TriFold Display Board 28×40
- Elmer’s X-TREME School Glue Stick
- Elmer’s Glue-All
- designer duct tape
- 1 page protector(like for binders)for the whiteboard
- package of sticky letters any color
- glitter glue
- decorative stamps and ink
- large sharpie
- medium sharpie
- construction paper
- Elmer’s Painters Pens
- regular fine tip markers
- glue dots(any brand)
- calendar template
- Print out calender template
- Cut open page protector to create the whiteboard surface. With glue dots on each edge place the page protector flat on the board. Place decorative duct tape on each corner of the page protector. Use the paint pens to make a fun border. Use the sticky letters to make “notes” and glue them on with the Glue-All.
- Place sticky letters on the top of the calendar templates to represent each month(we abbreviated).
- Decorate the calendars with markers or stamps.
- Place the templates on the board with the X-TREME glue stick.
- Cut construction paper strips to make a border and glue with the X-TREME glue stick.
- Using a yard stick draw a line about 5 inches from the top of the board, trace over it with a large sharpie.
- Use the sticky letters to trace your title with a pencil. Retrace the pencil lines with a medium sharpie. Color with different Painters Pens.
- Use glitter glue, markers & stamps to decorate the board with your own designs.
- Tape a piece of string to the back of the board with masking tape and make a loose slipknot on the untaped end. Slide a pencil into the knot.
