~ Psalm 63:1
Be it old....Be it new.....I "Love" a good ol' Chalk Board....
This includes the old chalk boards that we all enjoyed drawing on....in elementary school. Do any of you remember those days?
I'm not sure that there are many chalk boards used in schools today, but no problem.....my kiddos still have the opportunity to experience chalk drawing....right here at Shug's house. I have a couple of boards that we use all the time.
My grandchildren enjoy expressing their artistic abilities on them..
For me....their drawings become little treasures!!
They take turns on the chalk board below......expressing their own view of the month ahead. As you can see.... the month of October belonged to Mylee Jo....
Her pumpkins are so cute..... Her take on Halloween I suppose!
I think that the drawing at the top is of Mylee carving her pumpkin!!
The only issue that I have had in the past with the chalk pens is that I could never get the board clean. The pens seemed to leave a permanent imprint on the board.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's work great on cleaning up a chalk board!!
Back a few months ago, I used several different colorful pens on my Red chalk board.....I covered it with sunflowers and a garden scene, with a scripture written on the board.
For a week now, I have been trying to get the dull images off of the board.....so I could draw something new for the Fall season.
I was having no luck at all in getting the board clean.....until yesterday!!!!
While at the grocery store yesterday evening....I came across a box of "Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's"
Thought I'd give them a try.....and to my surprise, they worked WELL.
My RED board is totally clean!!!
