homemade chalkboard paint...

I'm so excited to team up with other amazing bloggers to share kids summer craft projects with you.  today we are sharing how to make your own homemade chalkboard paint, kids will love this. 


this is so simple.  I've seen so instructions all over the web and on pinterest.  so, I decided to take a stab at it. so here we go…

these are the things you will need:












non-sanded grout, you can find this at any hardware store
                                                              measuring cup - 1/2 cup
measuring spoon - 1 tablespoon
disposable cup / plastic spoon
painting surface (I purchased my speech bubbles at a craft supply store)
acrylic paint in any color

I would be sure to cover the table your are using with old newspapers just to protect your surface

I poured 1/2 cup of paint into a cup add 1 tablespoon of non-sanded grout stir {{I told you it would be easy}}, it will be thick, but that's ok



I painted maybe 3-4 coats, letting them dry just a little in between each coat. 
please let them dry for 24-48 hours before moving on the the next step...




next, just rub a peace of chalk over the entire writing surface, then wipe clean...







your chalkboards are now ready to use…I hope you enjoy making your own chalk board paint

Oh my goodness these are cute! Where did you get the text bubbles from? they are so much fun! I know that not only would my kids love playing with the chalkboard paint they would love to make a bunch of "cartoon" pictures with the text bubbles!
