Both my daughters are very creative and often draw on our IKEA easel with blackboard and whiteboard. We have had it for years, but only recently I have come across some liquid chalk markers as using normal chalks at home is just not ideal (unless you want to come to my house and clean all the mess afterwards).
I love seeing and encouraging both my girls to be creative and was delighted to be approached by Chalkola Chalkboard Markers to review some of their latest products, 21 Chalk Pens & 6 Metallic Markers & their Pack of 8 NEON 15mm Jumbo Chalk Pens .
You cannot even imagine the excitement on both my girls’ faces and they have not stopped scribbling and drawing on our windows and their easel since then!
Check out just a few of their lovely art pieces!
The Chalkola markers can only be used on NON POROUS surfaces, like – Chalkboards, Whiteboards, Glass, Plastic, Windows. The reason being that porous surfaces have small holes which can absorb the liquid chalk ink and sometimes it gets difficult to completely erase them.
To wash off the ink, you need a wet cloth/wet wipes or some window cleaner. I have found that using a magic eraser helps getting rid off staining on the chalkboard and window cells. If that does not help, you can always repaint using some chalkboard paint!
As chalk markers have high density chalk Ink, new markers take 2 to 3 mins prep time, so make sure you get these ready before your little ones want to use them! Once used the ink flows smoothly. I had no problems with this, just follow the easy instructions on the package!
Basically you need to shake each pen/marker well with a cap on and up-right for about 30 seconds. Then press the tip to and fro many times to quickly get the ink flowing. Put the cap back on, stor in a horizontal postion for about 3 minutes and then start using!
