Drawing on stuff around the house can be fun, but as most kids discover when they get in trouble for drawing on the walls ink is extremely hard to wipe off, unlike chalk off a chalkboard.
That's why people who want to write on stuff like dressers, pitchers, serving trays, crockpots or staircases need to grab a can of chalkboard paint and turn those surfaces into something to chalk about.
And if you're really dedicated to adding chalkable surfaces to your home you can turn an entire wall into a can't miss chalkboard calendar.
Too big of a space commitment? Why not turn the side of your file cabinet into a chalkboard instead?
Now you've got a place to write all those important notes in the place where you need it most.
