In the 3-4 year olds room (where I help teach the preschoolers Sunday School) is this giant framed-out bulletin board thing (94"x46"). Our guys added fresh drywall with the intent of covering it with chalkboard paint.
I have never had luck with chalkboard paint erasing well, and I suggested we didn't want to deal with the chalk dust on new carpet. Of course, that means I need to come up with alternate solutions. My thought at the moment is to turn it into a giant felt board. If I covered cork board with felt, it could be used as both a felt board and a bulletin board. But it's a very large surface, so there's the potential to divide it in half and create two separate spaces.
So what are your initial thoughts? Felt/bulletin board? Where do I even buy a cork board that big? What color felt do you think? Green on the bottom and blue on top, or something neutral?
What about other ideas? The board is at child-level, so we need something that the kids can safely interact with. The idea of a dry-erase surface has already been suggested and denied.
Thanks for your help!
