Attaching two masonite boards/question


Is there a way to attach two masonite boards to each other? I am making preschool room dividers. They need to be light weight, cheap, paintable, able to stand up (which is why I thought of hinges), easy and quick to make, and very portable. I would like to be able to fold them up and put them away if possible. They will be used as "walls" and will have the same things you see on preschool room walls like displays and such.

Is there a better wood to use? Any help and advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can use hinges, just use nuts and machine screws instead of wood screws to attach the hinges to the masonite.
