You are able to get these from major stores like The Home Depot. You can get it in the classic black, or you buy it so it can be tinted in 12 different colors. It is a great project when applied properly. You can write on it just like a regular chalkboard.


If you want to take it a step further you can make a magnetic surface. Like making that chalkboard magnetic.

You can use any type of rocks that you want for this project so if you happen to live in an area that has lots of river rocks then this will really be a breeze. You will need to purchase a can of Rust-Oleum Glow in the Dark Paint. This is a brush on paint and you will need about a seven ounce can. If you are planning to do a relatively large area, you may want to consider picking up two cans. This idea works great with any type of landscaping design.
