The Busy Blanket

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
Voting is up for Week #4: The Outdoor Challenge, so go over and vote for your favorites.  This was a tough week for me because I don’t usually make outdoor crafts, so I have my fingers crossed!

Thanks for all of the votes last week that helped me come in a very  close second place.  Did you all guess that mine was The Busy Blanket? 
I promise a more detailed post with a how-to soon!
This was such a fun project for me and my kids adored it and used it everyday during our beach vacation.

Aside from the clock and the numbers, Ethan’s favorite part was the tic-tac-toe board

And Ainsley loved the dry erase board!

My favorite part was that it kept them busy and then folded up into a cute bag for me to carry

Here are a few more detailed photos of everything

 Chalkboard and chalkboard holder
 Dry erase board with dry erase markers and crayons

Mesh bag for extra games

So fun, right?!

Alright, go over and vote for the Outdoor Challenge and I will be back in a few weeks with a tutorial for The Busy Blanket!

    Did you end up posting a tutorial on how you made this?

    Would love to know what you used for the crayon/dry erase material and the chalk board.
