Do you miss the fun of playing with sidewalk chalk during the cold days of winter or when snow is covering the sidewalk? We do. I found something to fix that, purely by accident. I was walking around Walmart during one of them rare shopping without kids moments. It has been awhile so I was aimlessly browsing each aisle like I was sight seeing some foreign land. Then I saw this Chalkboard table cloth hanging with the Christmas tablecloths. Chalkboard table cloth… I was interested and at 3 dollars it was worth the risk. So I grabbed it and some chalk. When I got home with it I set it out in the classroom floor to try to get the wrinkles out.
I’m betting if this was on carpet we could draw a hopscotch thing on it and play hopscotch in the living room. On hard floor it was a little slippery. I’m not sure if it would be any less slippery on carpet because I didn’t try that but I’m guessing it would be.
It’s black vinyl and wipes clean with a little bit of water. It is a little harder to write on that a chalkboard but only because I have yet to figure out how to get the wrinkles out…and I threw away the instructions. I feel the need to Google that now. Okay, apparently I just need to throw it into the dryer with some wet towels for a couple of minutes. I think I will go do that right now.
So there you have it… all the fun of Sidewalk art inside. Now I’m off to hopefully not mess it up in the dryer!
