    DIY Chalkboard Face in the hole

    • Easy to Moderate
    • Snow day, Every Day

    Supplies Needed


    1. Free-hand a frame shape using the Painter’s markers
    2. Then go over the line a few times to make it thicker and add embellishment.  I used Painters because that way you can redraw the character over and over with chalk, but the frame will always stay since it was drawn in paint.
    3. Next draw an oval for the head.  I guessed on size, then adjusted it. To cut out the circle, just use an X-ACTO Knife.
    4. I wasn’t sure if the board needed “seasoned” with chalk or not, but I went ahead and did that, figuring it wouldn’t hurt.  I just lightly covered the whole board in chalk (use the side of the chalk) and then wiped it off.
    5. And now let their imagination take over!I knew the kids would like drawing on them, but I didn’t realize how much they would like it.  Everyone got really into it, so it’s a fun time for all ages.
    6. To erase the chalk and do a different drawing, we just used a dry towel and that worked really well.
