Here’s a quick and easy tip…
I bought Baby Brownie an easel chalkboard from IKEA (it’s only $15!) and with it a box of chalk. I’m sure I’m not the only one who hates the feeling of chalk on my hands so I devised a quick and easy way to protect my hands from chalky dryness AND protect the chalk from breaking.
I only thought of this after, but if you start wrapping at the end and finish wrapping near the writing tip, you can peel back the tape as the tip gets worn down. I should have realized that earlier.
I feel sort of silly sharing this cause it is so simple, but hey…why not?
