Make Your Own Scrabble Board With Adhesive Magnets

on 06/21/2017

 With the summer months quickly approaching, many people are looking for fun activities to do with the whole family! Today we have an activity using magnetic receptive dry erase whiteboard sheets that kids can help make and the whole family can enjoy.

With this easy do-it-yourself activity, you can transform magnetic receptive dry erase whiteboard sheets into the perfect portable game board that you can easily play indoors or outside. 

We started by lining the outer edges of the 24" x 24" board with a wooden border to give it a fancier feel. This step allows you to hang the board and help to blend in with the other decor of your room. 

The next step is to find the board game that you would like to transform. We chose to make our own Scrabble board for this activity. We cut small pieces of adhesive magnets to attach to the back of each Scrabble letter. This is an easy way to make the Scrabble letters adhere to the magnetic receptive whiteboard material! Another perk of this method is cleanup is a breeze. Once the game is completed, the pieces will stick on the board unless you remove them. 

A bonus of using a large whiteboard for your game-board is that it gives the option of personalization. Use dry erase markers to draw and design the board and even use it to score your games.

If you would like to repurpose the board after the game has ended, you have options. One option would be to turn the board into a permanent piece of decor for your home. You could keep the board hanging and change the Scrabble letter combinations for holidays or special occasions such as birthdays.
