Chalkboard Blocks

I am so excited to share this with you... 

Have you heard of busy bags?  
They are gallon size bags filled with a quiet activity for preschool age children.  
I have two at home this year, and sadly nap time is disappearing.  
I still want to have some quiet time after lunch, before everyone gets home from school.  

We organized a busy bag exchange.  
There are lots of ideas how to do this on Pinterest.  
In our group we decided to each make 7 of one activity.  
I can't wait to see what they came up with.  

I just have to say I Love Chalkboard Paint!!! 

It is so easy to use.  
Oh the possibilities...

 I made my 7 blocks out of a 2x4 that my sweet farmer cut for me.  
He even sanded them for me. 
I painted them with two coats of Chalkboard paint using a mini touch up roller.  
It worked great and left a nice surface to chalk.

 I had some larger blocks that I thought would be great for Christmas.  A little chalk and a red burlap bow all done.  
Change the bow and the lettering for any holiday.  
So easy and quick!  

Hmmm what else can I paint...
