A Homemade Dry-erase Board

I had an old 8x10 picture frame laying around, and I decided to spray paint it purple.  Then, I put some polka dotted scrapbook paper inside with a couple of little white boxes I made on my computer.  I printed those out on cardstock, and now I have my own personal Dry-erase board to keep up with special happenings each day!  I just LOVE making things for my classroom!

Pom-Pom Erasers!

I found this idea on Pinterest, of course.  So, my daughter and I made these this summer.  She has been using her set all summer long, and she loves them.  I cannot wait to use these at school this year!
