Since about March our world has changed. My son Gavin was in kindergarten and doing sports. My daughter Harper who is 4, loved going to drop him off and pick him up. Even more, she had also made friends at his school. My teenager was living his life with dances, going to games, and being a junior in high school. To top it off I had a young baby at home. Then everything stopped. We had to find ways to fill the time. Being creative with Chalkola is one way we have filled that time.
Aside from now needing to home school the older two kids, I had a lot of time to fill. The new question was, what can we do at home now that things have shut down? I needed to get creative. We built forts, threw water balloons on our patio, played board games all day every day and much more. But after a month, things got boring. Furthermore, I have little kids with tons of energy and no understanding of why we could not go anywhere.
Well thank goodness for Pinterest. They have all these art’s and craft’s ideas. But you know what my kids loved the most? It was drawing on my white board. Who knew that a small white board on my wall could be a source of so much fun? I had bought it for work. Although I will do anything for my kids so if they wanted the white board it was theirs. I may not understand why they found so much fun in that, but it did not matter because they were occupied. They were also not fighting and were having fun together.
But the only color I had to write with was black. I was not about to go to a store searching for more colors. When I found Chalkola I was so excited. You can get a box of 30 colored chalk markers. What is even better is, they work on the white boards, chalk boards and so many other surfaces. We now have a chalk board and a white board for them to draw on. They have created so many fun drawings. They would even play made up games and tic-tac-toe. Even better, they could erase it and start over without needing to waste paper. But, a huge plus was they are not messy like regular chalk.
The next best thing is I could use them. Adults like to be creative too. I used the different colors to create a sign for my baby’s 9-month picture and a sign for my Sunday sweets recipe. These are seriously perfect. Chalkola makes chalk markers and they also have cute chalkboards for sale. They write so easily; you can create so many things and they do not make a mess. To top it off, they are not expensive. I am a person looking for a deal at every turn. These were inexpensive and so much fun for the entire family.
Being creative with Chalkola can be done using their chalk marker’s, dot marker’s or their watercolor brush pens. On top of that they also have acrylic paints and paint markers. I have not tried the acrylic products yet. Being creative with Chalkola chalk markers has been so much fun and we cant wait to try the other products out.
