crafting with grandma - Chalkboard Placemats, Lunch Box Lids and Containers!

Chalkboard Place MatsIn keeping with the "back-to-school" theme today, I'm really happy to share with you an idea I found on Pinterest for making chalkboard placemats! What a fun and simple craft - one your grandchildren could help you make - which you can use at your house . . . and make extras to send home . . . so your grandchildren can practice writing or math or whatever while they wait for their meals, or wait to be excused from the table . . . or just for fun! Check this link for all the directions!

Click Image for IdeaI also LOVE the idea of making the inside of the lid to a lunch box or the top of a food container a "chalkboard" which you can write notes to children so when they get their lunch they can be surprised by what you write or draw! So much fun! You'll find the directions at this link and this link!

So . . . what do you think of these ideas? Which might you try or pass on to your daughter or daughter-in-law?
