How to Make a DIY Dry Erase Board
A while back I came across a really great idea for turning an old picture frame into a writing practice tool. All you do is put writing paper inside instead of a picture, offer your little one some dry erase markers and voila… they can write their little hearts out. (I think everything might be more fun with markers!)
How to use your DIY Dry Erase Board
Around Halloween I used our dry erase board to add a little writing practice to our art center. Some of the papers inserted into the frame had writing, some had pictures. Changing the theme, holiday or season would be really easy with this one!
I think our dry erase board gets the most use as a score board. We play a lot of games that require someone to keep score. This is an easy way to do it and keeps us from having a ton of papers to throw away!
The dry erase board is a great way to practice sight words. For this activity Little M was writing sentences using her sight words and then drawing a picture to match.
We’ve used our dry erase board for Hangman and Tic Tac Toe as well. I drew the game board with a black marker on a sheet of paper and put it inside the frame. Then we use dry erase to play again and again.

Using a glass frame could be dangerous. Make sure your little one can carefully handle it and supervise closely.
