The Blackboard by Boogie Board made it to my ‘best list’ for getting organized in the new year. You can see that post here. In this post, however, I’m sharing why you might want to get one for your kids.
Benefits of the Blackboard
The Blackboard by Boogie Board can be a great teaching tool and occupational therapy tool. While the concept of the Boogie Board Blackboard product is more for office and home organization use, it can be repurposed for parenting. I have found that you can use it to assist kids in their handwriting, and letter and number learning. It is also great for working on pencil grip and other fine motor skills. It can also help kids learn to focus on details and attend to task.
You can see my 5 minute Boogie Board Blackboard review video here showing you how and why. Skip to about 2 minutes into the video to only see the parenting part, and not the product overview part, if you want to get to the nitty gritty.
Basically, you can place the Blackboard over any coloring sheet or worksheet. Kids can trace the object underneath using the surface of the Blackboard. This enables you to keep the sheet pristine. Thus, you can use the sheet again and again or for different children. This maximizes your home tools and workbooks. Perfect for those that homeschool.
The lightweight aspect of the Blackboard enables you to take it on the go. No batteries to charge or plug in, so it is especially great for the plane and car trips.
