I grabbed this set of 2 cookie pans at Dollar General for $4. You could use old pans you already have used.  Or even find some really cheap at the thrift store. I chose new pans because I wanted them to have a really smooth surface. You can also sand down the old dirty pans, but I was lazy. 😉

They also provide a great surface for coloring or homework on the go. I love the edge on the pan because it prevents pencils and crayons from rolling all over the place.

I am telling you. As simple as this craft is…it is one of the most useful I have made in awhile. My kids have already decided that I can hot glue a small travel pillow to the bottom to make them more squishy too. In case you wanted another way to make this Magnetic Chalkboard Lap Desk a little more fancy! 😉
