We love easy family movie nights and have been enjoying spending evenings together at home. Our oldest daughter would like to bring her little sister to the theater but she’s still a little too young to sit through a movie in a chair outside of our comfy living room. Bringing the theater to our house is the next best thing. An easy snack station chalkboard easel really elevates the fun. Our new favorite chalk markers made it easy to write “snacks” on the chalkboard; I’ve always been hesitate to write on chalkboards because it never turns out as pretty as I hoped. The chalk markers are child safe and work on many different non porous surfaces including windows, glasses, chalkboards, whiteboards and plastic. With an almost two year old toddler, I was was happy to see the markers are water based, non toxic and wash off clothing.
The markers are low odor and great for family crafts. We received three complimentary boxes of chalk markers including the 6mm pens and 15mm markers and have a long list of projects to complete.
The fine point pens were very easy to use on the chalkboard.
I printed the design, traced the back with chalk then transferred it to the chalkboard by gently rubbing on the paper.
Next I traced the transferred outline with a white Chalkola pen and wiped away the transfer chalk with a damp cloth.
We filled the snack station chalkboard easel with favorite movie treats for a great night.
We’ll be using the larger chalk markers to draw a birthday banner on our backyard wall for our youngest daughter’s second birthday party in a couple of weeks.

THIS is so seriously cute and chic that I want to make one right now. It would be so fabulous for my home (and I have no kids) just to add some oomph to movie night! I’m all about DIYs and this one looks simple to complete! Also – your snacks are making me hungry for sweets!
This easel would be adorable for grown up movie parties too!
Oh this is adorable! I would totally do this for a kids birthday party! I love love chalkboard pens, they are just the best and no mess!

This is absolutely adorable! It would be so fun for a family movie night or a sleepover party! I will have to do this next time my niece and nephew come over to stay!
Great idea, this would be really fun for a sleepover!
This is such a cute idea for at home movie parties. I think it really would have worked well for the SING party I recently hosted…great idea.
I’m sure it would have been a fun addition to your SING party. Wouldn’t the SING logo look adorable chalk on these easel?!?!
This is such a cute idea! My kids are too young for the theater, so I make it special at home. I love this!
Thank you, that is the exact reason why we are currently loving family movie nights! Little sister just wouldn’t do well if we tried to force her to sit through a movie in the theater.
Super cute idea! Isn’t it fun thinking up cute ways to entertain our friends and family!
It definitely is fun! Thank you, my girls loved this snack station.
This is a creative spin on movie night. Thank you for sharing this! I know that my family would love something like this, too.
Thanks, the snack station absolutely elevates family movie night.
What a cute movie night idea! I use chalk markers often but have not heard of this brand! I wrote down the name so I can remember it when my current ones need replacing. I have never thought of doing the transfer thing for drawing on my chalkboards, but I love that!
Thanks! Chalkola is awesome!! I expect to be doing quite a bit more chalk transfers on this easel.
I must check these out! I have a chalk board on the door in my kitchen, and these would be absolutely perfect!
They really are great and you’ll use them for so much more than just your kitchen chalkboard.
That is super cute! I have those markers and I just love them. The colors are amazing. We use them for everything from chalkboards to decorating cardboard boxes for my cats!
Aren’t the Chalkola markers awesome? My daughters would love to decorate cardboard boxes for our cats!
I love the idea of creating a concession stand for your candy and snacks. Great idea for our next movie night!
Thanks, definitely adds to the fun!
Makes my movie nights look so boring. I love this idea. It is so much fun and gives the kids that theater like experience.
I’m sure your movie nights aren’t boring! All that matters is the kiddos are having fun and making family memories.
Omg just loving what you did with the board!! I might just have to do this next time we have a family movie night!!!
Thanks, it was so easy and added tons of fun to our movie night!
This looks like such a fun thing for everyone in the family! We always love movie night and having a treat station would be a great way to top it off.
Thanks, the snack station is always a big hit in our home!
That’s such a lovely idea! I like making movie night with the family special and exciting. These chalk markers are awesome to have, we have the same brand at home and we’ve used ’em on so many arts and crafts.
Awesome that you already have Chalkola markers! They are my very favorite.
This is such a great idea for a movie night in!!! It would be perfect for special occasions such as weddings, baby showers and so many other events.
Thanks, and I agree, this easel could be used for so many fun party ideas!
