These are super easy to make and provide hours of creative play as well as encourage the development of your toddler’s hand-eye coordination and attention span.

To make some chalkboard blocks of your own you’ll need to gather a few supplies (Bunnings or Mitre 10 should have everything you need):

  • plank of wood
  • saw
  • chalkboard paint
  • paint brush
  • paint tray
  • sandpaper

Cut down the wood into rectangles and saw the corners off one end to form a house shape. You can make the blocks as tall, short, or narrow as you’d like. Variety makes your city scape more interesting!

When the blocks are cut, sand all the edges and front so they are smooth and there are no rough spots. Then, simply paint over with chalkboard paint and let dry overnight before use.

Once the paint has dried, have fun creating your little city!
