The couple who crafts together, stays together.
I decided to make a little basket to hold the chalk. In the process I learned two things: 1) Buying sticks of chalk these days is waaay harder than I thought. 2) Apparently schools these days don't use chalkboards. So kids these days will never know the joy of eraser duty - smacking erasers together as a cloud of chalk dust covers you in a cloud and you struggle for air....anyways childhood problems..
The only thing left to do is enjoy coming home to messages like this! You could also write grocery lists and other productive things...but I have a sneaking suspicion we will use our message frame to play tic tac toe.
