If you have toddlers or pre-schoolers who are learning the alphabet, how to spell their name and other words, then you may find this helpful. My kids have the Kidkraft Avalon table and chairs. I love this table because it is big and sturdy and adults can sit comfortably on the chairs. Anyway, I was in Sams Club the other day and saw this very large magnetic white board that happened to have a cork board on the other side. It was under $16.00, so quite a good deal. I bought it, and upon bringing it home noticed that it is the same size as the kids’ table. I put it on and added some Melissa and Doug alphabet magnetic letters, then I called in the kiddies and they had so much fun. Well, we had fun and it has been played with everyday since then. Now any kind of magnet will work on the board and I also bought them the Expo washable dry erase markers for children. Additionally I purchased the Crayola dry erase crayons, so they can practice writing their letters or other art on the board. Just wanted to share this as it is an inexpensive and educational ideas that kids will love.
