This cute blackboard box for chalks is cheap and easy to make. It's a fun thing to bring on journeys to play with, and can easily be wiped clean. It also makes a great homemade present for a little friend.

Time: 5 minutes plus drying time
Age: any age
Level: Easy

Materials
Plain craft box (ours was a thick cardboard box and cost $1 from a discount craft store)
Grey or black matt house paint (we used a tester pot from a paint store) or proper blackboard paint
Brush or roller
Chalks

Method
Paint the box with the grey or black matt paint. You'll get the best finish if you use a small foam roller.
Allow to dry.

Set out to dry


Put chalk into the box. You could try making your own novelty chalk like we did - click here to find out how.
If you're giving the box of chalk as a gift, you may want to put a piece of tissue paper in the bottom of the box to protect the chalk.
You can now draw on your blackboard box with chalk. Wipe clean with a baby wipe to clean off your drawing and try different designs.
