As a former teacher, I have great respect for different kinds of dice. Standard 1-6 dot dice are always useful, but having lots of different kinds of dice with different number and letter combinations can turn a boring activity into a fascinating lesson. So the idea of reusable, rewritable chalkboard dice had me thinking of all sorts of possibilities for my kids (and for games I like to play too!)
Things to do:
1. Cover your work surface with paper and spread your cubes out, leaving a few inches between each.
2. Coat as many sides as you can with paint, allow it to dry, and then add a second coat.
3. Once the painted sides are dry, flip the dice and brush the remaining sides with two coats of paint. Allow the paint to cure according to manufacturers directions.
4. Write, play, erase and start again!
