Paint your wood canvas with 2 coats of chalkboard paint. Carry the paint down the edges of the canvas.
Wrap edges with tape
When the paint is dry, wrap the canvas edge with foil tape, taking care to line it up with the front edge.
Cure your chalkboard by rubbing the side of a piece of chalk over your chalkboard. Rub the chalk in with a dry cloth, then wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Lay out chalkboard
Lay out your chalkboard planner by creating sections for projects, due dates and notes, or choose your own categories. A chalk pen works best for this.
Schedule out homework and activities so you never miss another due date.
