Recently, I gave myself a little project of painting a board book with chalkboard paint. Yes, two of my favorite things combined- chalk and books. I found 12 board books for free at a book recycling event in Salem (I was also able to donate 2 huge boxes of my own books.) The empty book gives countless opportunities for imaginative stories and drawings. I think kids would have a lot of fun playing with this, and probably most of my friends would too. I love the idea of giving this book as a homemade gift, wrapped up with a pack of chalk. Would you like to own your very own chalk board book?
