Creative Kid Table Week 10: Mirrors and Dry Erase Markers

Tips for successful creative play:

  • Find some mirrors. I bought ours at the local craft store but any mirror will work. Big mirrored closet doors are great or the bathroom mirror.
  • Provide different size dry erase markers and dry erase crayons.
  • Once the creative play has died down a bit, use the mirror to play Tic-Tac-Toe or another drawing game.

Questions to get your kids started:

  • “Lean your face in front of the mirror while you draw. Can you add sunglasses? Can you decorate your face?”
  • “Place an object on the mirror. Can you trace it? What can you make with the new design?”

A few more ways to use dry erase:

  • Write out chores on the mirrored closet door in a checklist. It’s a fun way to share what needs to be done.
  • Make a dry erase board with an old picture frame. Here are 4 ways to have fun with dry erase.
