You could paint a part of your wall with blackboard paint, this is readily available from DIY stores and Amazon ( Blackboard Paint ) Some paints are available in magnetic versions so you can use magnets too. (Magnetic Blackboard Paint, Black).


If you don’t want to paint your wall then a better option is to use a removeable wall sticker, such as this one from Amazon:


This can be customised to your own design and also makes a great scribble/doodle area for kids. You can use permanent blackboard pens (White Liquid Chalkboard Pen ) for areas which you don’t want erased and chalks for the rest.
