Top tip: Wellie pegs!

As Autumn fast approaches, it’s time to get out the wellies but how to keep them tidy? We’ve been encouraging order with these novel chalkboard pegs.

Just spray paint a thin piece of balsa wood with Chalkboard spray paint, attach to a large peg with glue and then write the child’s (or adult’s) name on it. Easy to make, easy to use. Perfect!

If you haven’t got time or the resources to make the chalkboard pegs, just use left-over spray paint on wooden pegs for a quick and colourful remedy!
