Step 1: Draw on Whiteboard.

This hopefully is an easy intuitive step, but beware it sometimes feels like real work.

Step 2: Choose Your Sacrificial Stuffed Toy. Make Sure They Are Comfortable With the Task.

I got given this guy from an un-named conference. His lily-white fur seemed to clean compared to the surrounds of our workspace so we thought we'd put him to work.

Step 3: With Firm Grip Wipe the Board With It's Squishy Butt.

You can see that grip is everything. Hold tight then use that "wax-on, wax-off" technique.

Step 4: Inspect the Results

It's a little obscene, but you get the picture..

Step 5: Make Sure Toy Is Feeling Good About It.

    I love it! I have 26 small whiteboards for my students--they will get a kick out of erasing with stuffed animals they can get at the dollar store.

    Would be Cooler if you cute it open on the seams at the feet and belly then inserted a bunch of magnets and stitch it back up. That way it could sit on the white board when you were not using it.

    No need to worry, if the plush was black instead of white. Use it enough and then throw it away. ...or set it on fire...

    Wow. Real creative. You rubbed a stuffed animal's ass on a white board. I don't know if I could pull that off!

    Laughing this hard at the office is a little unseemly.
