Bright Ideas! Attaching a dry-erase board to a bulletin board!

So, I was working in my classroom (We get kiddos next week!) and was putting my math bulletin board together when inspiration hit!  I wanted dry-erase boards, but couldn't figure out how to get them on my bulletin board.  So, here is the solution I came up with!  You need a small dry-erase board, a binderclip and a pushpin.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Here you can see it in action on my math bulletin board:

This also works using a Command Hook!

Here is a zoomed out photo!

This little green board is dry-erase and magnetic!

  1. I attach small marker boards to my walls too.. but always used thumb tacks to create a ledge on the top and bottom for it to sit between. These hooks will make it a bunch more effective! Thanks for your great idea!

  2. OMG! You have just saved me TONS of work! I was trying to figure out how to make parts of my closet door be able to hang magnets - I won't even get unto what I was planning on doing, but this is sooo much easier! I'm going out tomorrow to find small magnetic boards and then I'll hang them on the doors! Thank you so much for sharing this! ~ Lisa

  7. super cool. Can't find the colored magnetic erase boards....where?

    1. can you tell me where you purchased the colored dry erase boards. I've searched around to come up empty.
      Are they call colored magnetic tiles?
