Example and ideas of how to use the products included in this kit.
Dry Erase Menu Board and Vinyl Banner
Dry erase menu boards are a helpful tool for the cafeteria since they help improve the flow of students through your lines by letting students know the choices as they stand in line. Use the dry erase menu board to write in the daily menu choices for breakfast every day.
The vinyl banner and dry erase menu board can be displayed together. For a simply and portable display option for the dry erase menu board, hook the board by the grommets to the banner display stand. The dry erase menu board can also be displayed by hanging on a wall.
Consider these helpful hints to make the most of your board, while making sure what you're sharing is clear and easy to understand:
• Use a level to hang straight.
• Don't display or hang too low so students can bump or erase!
• Careful not to misspell words.
Hanging and displaying posters can help support your school's wellness policy and promote making nutritious choices. The posters in the kit are laminated for durability.
Consider these helpful hints for hanging your posters:
• Look for visible areas and consider how students will move through the space (direction people will be facing, walking or moving).
• Hang your posters to provide a distraction for students waiting in line.
• How high? The rule of thumb is to hang just above eye level. Don't hang them too high, which can look out of place.
• Look for balance equally space items or center over a focal point.
• Do not overdo your decorations - a cluttered look can be worse than a bare one.
What should you use to hang your posters? Learning ZoneXpress recommends using 3M brand Command products, which are double-sided strips that hold firm to concrete or sheetrock and are easily removed without damage to the wall or paint.
Stickers and Bookmarks
The incentives in the kit include a roll of Celebrate School Breakfast stickers and Breakfast bookmarks, which are perfect for promoting your breakfast program.
