I bought the felt at Wal-Mart for $.23 a piece. You can find these felt sheets in the craft section. You can also find these felt sheets on Amazon. 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.

HOW TO MAKE DIY ERASERS FOR WHITE BOARDS

 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!

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT

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.

You can toss these erasers after they get dirty. OR You can get a mesh laundry bag and toss them in the washing machine!

  1. I use dark colored socks. I get them at thrift stores/garage sales. Each student gets one along with their labeled marker. They erase well, look “clean”, hold the matker, and wash easily.

  2. I was using micro-fiber rags from the Dollar Tree. I can get about 6 from one rag. This is way cheaper. I'm thinking I'm off to Walmart to get me some felt! Thanks for the tip.

  3. My partner and I stumbled over here by a different website and thought
    I might check things out. I like what I see so
    now i'm following you. Look forward to going over your web page for a second time.
