We are living in unprecedented times! How many times have you heard that phrase in the last few months? As we are spending more and more time at home these days, I am always looking for creative and fun ideas for things to do with my preschool-aged twins.
That is why I jumped at the chance to review some products from Chalkola when they reached out to me. Keep on reading to learn how you can snag a discount for a product of your own!
Since we have been having a heatwave in Southern California, the boys and I had an impromptu ice cream party at home and used our new Chalkola products to create a fun “I is for Ice Cream” sign!
The products I received were the Rustic Chalkboard Sign and the set of 30 Neon & Pastel Chalk Markers. These products are perfect for writing signs, art projects, homeschooling and more! In these crazy times, they also work for decorating your car windows for any upcoming drive-by birthday celebrations you may have.
The Rustic Chalkboard Sign features:
- 12.5 x 10.5″ writing area
- non-porous magnetic surface
- kickstand easel design
- front holding tray
- instant setup and storage
- works well with chalk markers or regular chalk
- cleans easily with a damp cloth
The Set of 30 Chalk Markers feature:
- 30 vibrant colors (see the list of colors on the box)
- reversible round / chisel tip
- erasable on non-porous surfaces such as chalkboards, windows, glass, metal and ceramic
- permanent on porous surfaces like paper, wood, fabric and clay
- child-safe, non-toxic and xylene free
- low odor
- quick drying and easy to clean
I was particularly impressed by the brightness of the markers and the range of colors that this set includes.
Using the markers is quick and easy. Start by shaking the marker upright and with the cap on.
Then press the tip up and down to fill it with ink. After that, you are ready to get writing.
The markers are also equipped with a reversible tip. On one side there is a round tip and the other side is a chisel-shaped tip. Simply pull the tip out of the marker and flip it to get the tip you want for your project.
So far, I have only used the markers on the Chalkola chalkboard, but I am looking forward to coloring some pottery and perhaps doing some window drawings with my sons.
My personal experience with these two Chalkola products have been amazing! I am so impressed by the vibrancy of the colors. The chalkboard is easy to clean and the markers are simple to use. I have had one experience of some of the marker dripping, but that did not occur again after I used the markers a few more times. I have loved using the products and cannot wait to do more with them!
Chalkola also has a great YouTube channel that has lots of project ideas and inspiration. One of my favorite videos is the Draw the Solar System with Chalk Markers video:
