We are big into blackboards in our house. Not only are we big into blackboards in our house but we are big into big blackboards.
We have a bit one in the playroom where the kids practice their letters, their sums, they keep score of their games…
We used to have one in the old kitchen where we had our weekly menu: the breakfast menu that stopped arguments and meltdowns in the morning, the lunch menu that helped me give my kids balanced and varied lunch boxes, and dinner menu that help me be organised during the week and have dinner ready on the table at a decent time! It is amazing what a little black wall can do for a family!!!
So of course we needed a blackboard in the new kitchen. I knew from the beginning where exactly it was going to go and it was a big enough space so I started planning what I wanted to put on it besides my menus.
I now have my calendar, some fairy lights and of course, a plant. Plenty of room left for menus and other practicalities
There is so much room in this new blackboard that I might even use a corner as a chore chart for the kids.
Do you have a blackboard in your home?
