Editor's Note: There's no better way to spend quality time with children than to craft together. Making something special like this chalkboard wood tray project for the holidays not only stores away fond memories that will be recalled in the future, it also creates an heirloom seasonal decorative item for your home that is also quite practical. Come to think of it, this would be wonderful to make and use any time between now and New Year's.
- Wooden Tray
- Chalkboard Paint (Martha Stewart's blue and gray used here)
