    You could frame it or do a whole wall with it! Cover the front of your fridge!

    If you have children or teens- why not cover the backs of their doors or closet doors? Teens especially have things they want to display or dates to remember. And younger children love the chalk and love to hang pictures and cards and other treasures.

    Make one for your inside of a cabinet in your kitchen to remind yourself to purchase: diapers, cupcakes for Friday, etc.

    These would stick to my steel door. I would give my grandchildren colored chalk and let them go at it! Then they could take them home and put on their fridge

    I used to be a pre school teacher and in the old days we'd make felt stories but when these came out, I would make a copy from a color book or story that I have, take a black magic marker and trace around the picture and then glue it to a heavy paper, color and cut out and glue mag. to back. I might even use a colored paper to copy it onto in the first place. This way, it made the figure more sturdy and I could then allow the children to use them to retell the story. They listened better when they knew they could act the story out later during their free time. I would store these in zip lock bags. The three and four year olds loved these.
