At the beginning of the year, I bought 5 clipboards to use in the classroom. They were stored in a basket where the students could get them anytime they needed to use on - sitting on the floor, during recess, etc. They are the plain brown, hard board clipboards. I thought about painting them with spray paint or some other type of paint. Is there anyone who has done this? I want to cover up the writing on the clipboards and make them brighter. Any suggestions on how to do this. I don't plan to do anything like altering and using the pretty papers on them because they will just get messed up. I figured with paint, I could do this over again if needed. What do you think?
