DIY Easy and Cheap Erasers for Whiteboards

Today I'm sharing a DIY quick, easy, and cheap tip for erasers for whiteboards. I don't know about you, but I NEVER have enough erasers for my classroom. They are always disappearing...kinda like socks in my house!

Last Friday night I posted the picture below on Instragram about my hot date with felt and how I was spending my evening making white board erasers. I received several e-mails and messages asking me about this project. So I wanted to elaborate a little bit.

I bought the felt at Wal-Mart for $.23 a piece. You can find these felt sheets in the craft section. I get a variety of colors and I'll explain below why I do that. The darker the colors, the longer the erasers go without looking dirty.

 I get about $10 worth of felt and spend one evening cutting while I watch TV. (This is an easy project to get your significant other to help with!)  When I make these, I make A LOT so that I don't have to constantly make them throughout the year. 

I keep these erasers for whiteboards in various spots in my room (centers, small groups, whole group carpet area) so we need a lot to keep all of those areas stocked! After they're cut, I put them in a plastic storage box with a lid and just pull out fresh pieces as we need them.

I cut each piece of felt in to nine pieces. I should edit that sentence to say nine uneven pieces. They're like snowflakes, no two erasers are the exact same size and shape. But however you cut it, that's 9 erasers for $.23 cents!

I get multiple colors because one of the ways I use the different colors is to pick partners. I keep two of each color in a special container for partner work. I quickly walk around the room, have each student reach in and pick a color, they find the classmate with the same color eraser and that is their partner for that activity.
