Children love to draw on walls. Instead of stopping them, why not give them a whole wall of their own on which they can express their inner artist. Paint a wall with chalkboard paint. You can paint the whole wall, or a wide strip at writing height. The paint is erasable, washable and durable.
Chalkboard paint used to just come in black and green, but now you can find it in a broad array of colors so you don’t have to compromise your design. Paint it on, let it dry, rub with chalk to condition, wipe it off and your artist’s canvas is ready for your pint sized Picassos.
