Liquid Chalkers are a great product to help inspire creativity and, in our case, boost independence and give mommy a few minutes to get some cleaning done!
As soon as these came in the mail Squirrel was ready to get creative, in his Spider Man costume he started drawing on the patio door.
Liquid Chalkers can be used on most non-porous surfaces. Our favorites are the glass patio door and the fridge. You could also use them on mirrors, glass coffee or dining room tables, contact paper and white boards. While Liquid Chalkers can be used on some chalk boards and chalk board paints you need to test them on a small area first, chalk boards and chalk board paints tend to be porous and the marker may not come off.
Liquid Chalkers are non-toxic, have bright/bold colors with a heavy duty chisel tip so you can write with precision yet use the wider side to fill in color. The ink does not run nor is drippy, keeping messes at bay.
These Chalkers are also really easy to wipe off, simply grab a towel and wipe! You can even wipe them off with just your finger.
They can be purchased in a 4-pack of either colors (yellow, pink, green, blue) or all white or in a colorful 8-pack (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink and white).
When the makers arrive they aren't quite ready to use, but don't worry, it only takes a few seconds to prep them so they are ready to go.
First remove the cap and use a non porous surface (I used the top of the cap) to press down on the tip of the marker. Give it a couple taps and you'll see the ink start to flow into the tip of the marker. As soon as it's there, you're ready to start drawing!
Squirrel and I had a little drawing session one rainy day while his brother napped. We practiced writing letters and our names and we drew some flowers.
I had a chance to test out all of the colors.
Squirrel has really enjoyed these. He is often asking if he can draw on the window. I know Bug would enjoy them too, but I can not trust him with any sort of writing utensil... because he goes straight for the walls!
Not too long ago I was thinking that it might be nice to paint the side of the fridge with chalk board paint so that the kids would have the lower surface to write on and I could put a calendar on the upper surface. Well, Liquid Chalkers made that idea come to life... and I didn't even need chalk board paint. As you can see the colors are all very bold, even the yellow shows up really well!
I made the calendar so each box was the same size as the photo magnets. I then wrote re-occuring events on each of the photo frames and I just move them along through the month, that way I have the space in the box to write other things that come up on those days.
I am also looking forward to using these in some of our home school activities. Being that Squirrel is the oldest I would like to hang on to some of the printable worksheets we use. So instead of writing directly on some of those sheets I can put them in a page protector and have him write on the page protector. Then it will easily wipe off and they are ready to be used again by Squirrel later in the year or I can hang on to them for his brother when he starts school.
Liquid Chalkers would make a great gift for anyone; kids, adults, moms, teachers!
Who would you buy Liquid Chalkers for? What would you do with them?
