Traveling with Kids: Keeping the Kids Busy!
rectangle, I wrote out the alphabet and numbers 1-10 with a permanent marker
. I chose the alphabet and numbers for my kids’ needs. We could use the lower case letters for handwriting practice for my 5 year old. The number line would be great for subtracting for my 7 year old. My youngest (3 years old) could circle the numbers and letters as she worked on number identification and letter identification. You can customize your whiteboard as your child needs. I am in the process of creating another whiteboard with the cursive alphabet as my daughter has recently expressed an interest in learning to write the cursive letters. I decided to leave the reverse side blank for full drawing and writing space. Once you’ve figured out what you want to write on the board, cover it with clear contact paper
. Simply lay the contact paper over one side and fold it over the other side. Trim the edges and your whiteboard is done!
In the lower compartment, I added a dry erase marker and a bit of paper felt for erasing. You will want to get a dry erase marker with a fine tip or ultra fine tip for more legibility when writing and drawing.
