Outdoor Fort Chalkboard Wall

Happy Summer! There are still a few  end of year tasks for this teacher to do, but the kids are done and it's time start enjoying more time outside.

My kids absolutely love drawing, so playing with sidewalk chalk is a natural summer activity - unfortunately our country driveway is mostly dirt and we  don't have any sidewalks, so drawing space is limited. Last spring to help combat this we created a drawing wall on the side of the kids' play fort. I was 8 months pregnant at the time, so trust me when I say that this is quick and easy project! We just grabbed a piece of plywood, spray painted it with chalkboard paint, and screwed it in to the side of the fort. Voila! We didn't treat the plywood in any way before painting, so you can't really erase easily by wiping the rough surface, but a spray with the hose or waiting for rain words just fine - just like you would if you were drawing on a driveway or sidewalk.
