About: diys and stuff

If you don't want to buy a white board but you want one,then this is the diy for you. This also a great activity for children. You can make this diy as big as you want.

1)WHITE chart or paper depending on how sturdy you want it to be
2)OHP sheet or cellulose sheet or any transperent sheet in which you can write with a marker and rub it off afterwards.
3)Some Markers
4)Colours(optional)( only to make the board colourful)

Step 1: Let's BEGIN?

Take the white cardboard or white paper or white chart paper which you have at home. Place it on your working space.

Step 2: Colouring Time (optional)

This step is fun for children. If you want your board to be colourful then this step is for you too. Use colours which are bright. DON'T USE COLOURS WHICH MATCH TO YOUR MARKER INK . It is better not to use water colours as they will stick to the OHP sheet. Acrylic colours, Pencil colours, crayons are good. Sketch pens are not the best.

Step 3: All Done Nearly

Take the OHP sheet or the transparent sheet or cellulose sheet which you have and place it on the paper . Make sure the paper and the OHP sheet or the sheet you have used are of the same size.

Step 4: Tape It Up

Take The tape and tape the two sheets together. And it's all done.

Now only what is needed is your writing on it

    The interior of the bags for the tortilla chips we eat happens to be white, so I washed one out, taped it to cardboard and boom. It's a bit fragile if you try to clean it too vigorously, though.

    White Formica, not glued to anything, aluminum foil, any mirror--even acrylic, will work like white board. I used the front of the fridge, but had to use a white Mr. Clean sponge to get it off.

    I wonder if this could be done with just clear packing tape. It would be interesting to see if I could paint a big sheet of thin plywood and particle board white and then run tap all along it to create a big, inexpensive, and simple dry erase board.
