Cheap Dry Erase Boards

Make-your-own dry erase boards!

Make-your-own dry erase boards!

I sat at the kitchen table ready to do a group lesson with my two girls for penmanship. We got the dry erase markers out and the dry erase boards out. The unfortunate thing was that I was short a dry erase board.

No problem. I pulled a sheet protector from the file cabinet and put a sheet of white paper in it. Instantly, we have another dry erase board. Just write and wipe! I have used light color paper as well, and it works great.

The other substitute I have for dry erase boards, is using anything that I previously had laminated (we use Staples for this service, but any office supply store with a print shop in it can usually do the laminating). I usually laminate and then the back side is usually unused and white, another perfect dry erase board.

Great ideas, Tanya! And a great reminder: In a pinch, look around your house; you're sure to find great substitutes.

Handwriting is currently a problem in our home school. My 6yo daughter does not enjoy it. I am going to try putting a sheet of her handwriting paper into a sheet protector for fun. We also have dry erase pens that aren't too fat. I think she will enjoy the change from her "regular" handwriting.

I have also heard of others who put all their younger kids workbook pages in a sheet protector, so they can use the workbook over and over again with multiple children.
