Our hope that they will enjoy doodling on the blackboard wall that they will leave the other walls alone.  Whether it be a framed section of the wall or the entire space, you know you will find something different on there every day.

Kitchen Sign Blackboard signs are perfect for that list making in the kitchen.

Labelling Blackboard paint is fantastic for labeling, the best part is you can change the label as you change the jars contents.

Place Mats Having friends round for dinner?  Create them their own personalised place mat, not only will it add some fun and a talking point but you know they will want to draw on them by the end of the night.
