Outdoor Artist

In our home I like toΒ create beautiful spaces that allow adults to relax and enjoy as well as a child to have the freedom play. So, in our garden I wanted to make it an area that my daughter can enjoy by having things around the place for her to engage with and play.

The first of these things we’re put up is a blackboard on the fence.


This is so easy to do! We just got a sheet of plywood, painted it with blackboard paint then screwed it into the fence. We puttied over the screw holes and touched up the paint so it look seamless on the fence.


The below the board is a little bucket filled with chalk.

It’s such a fun thing for kids to play with and allows them to be creative!



We draw on the chalkboard and talk about the colours we’re using and count crayons.

This is perfect to use in summer and winter! So it’s a great way to get kids outside and inside the fresh air even when it’s a little cooler outdoors.
