We were gifted with this lovely Chalkola board and markers for review purposes. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own and will always be 100% honest.
ChalkOla markers review
Since few weeks our son is drawing a lot, colouring and breaking his crayons (not on purpose of course). So, when people from Chalkola asked us if we would like to try their markers and chalkboard we couldn’t be happier.
This little boy is drawing everything on the board and has a lot of fun when need to erase it to make another amazing art. I think erasing is a key here😅 Probably because it’s so simple to do it. You just need water and a cloth or you can do the same as we do and use baby wipes. He is happy now that he can draw as much as he wants and doesn’t need to change his paper all the time like before. And we can be proud to see how he is writing his name on it! But his favourite game is that we need to guess what he was trying to draw. Sometimes we even actually can guess. A real Picasso I’m telling you.
Why we love Chalkola markers
The colours are so bright! There are so many of them that everyone will find a favourite one. It’s amazing that we can use them on various non-porous surfaces and we can erase it without any problem. Our son likes to (accidentally) drawing on his hands and I need to say we did not have a problem to wash it out. Although I would be careful with clothes. We tested them on glass, plastic, chalkboard (obviously), whiteboard and even on windows. As per instructions first, we checked them in on a small area to see if it will be easy to erase them. We also love them because Chalkola markers are completely safe for children to use. They are odour and xylene-free and environmentally friendly. Another plus for those markers is that when you use them there is no dust like when you use normal chalk. And what’s every Mom likes the most it’s less messy than traditional chalk and paint.
How to use Chalkola markers
They take a few seconds of shaking and pressing up and down to get them flowing but then after that, they work smoothly. It’s good to know to not press them too hard because you can get a proper ink puddle.
Who can use them
It’s worth to say Chalkola is not only for kids. I and my husband also have a lot of fun using Chalkola markers and board. Quotes, sentences, statements whatever you want to put on the board looks amazing. I think it’s even better than using a felt board. At least you can use colours and draw whatever you want. They are perfect for businesses, for artists and for everyone who wants to have creative fun.
How to be creative with Chalkola markers
We took our set on the beach to make our son entertain. He was drawing for about half our without moaning how bored he is. You can take a memorable picture using Chalkola products. We did a sign on the board and it looks amazing on the pictures. We are pretty sure we will be using it very often. We plan to visit lots of place during this staycation and using a board will be a cute addition to our family pictures.
We use also markers for our crafting because some colours look better than paint. On the Internet, you can find lots of ideas on how to use them. You can transform your boring wine glass in something amazing every time you drink your favourite wine. For Christmas, you don’t need stickers anymore on your window because you can draw signs for Santa Claus and erase them after Christmas is finished. Use your imagination and become Chalkola fan. If you need more inspiration you can check their youtube channel.
