How-to: Upcycled Chalkboard Blocks out of Regular Building Blocks

chalkboard building blocksMy girls have been thrilled with their chalkboard blocks ever since the day they helped me make them, and I’m thrilled with the creative ways that they find to play. These blocks have been decorated a thousand different ways for use as rainbows, roadways, the ocean, candy for tea parties, hay for toy ponies, furniture for the dollhouse, dice, mummies in a building block Egyptian pyramid, trees on a building block farm…

What will your kiddos use their chalkboard blocks for?

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
