All my life I have been a doodler. Writing or sketching has always helped me keep focus on whatever task I’m trying to complete. So when I was contacted by ChalkOla to review their chalk markers I could not pass up the offer. The inner neat freak in me couldn’t wait to try the markers on my various chalkboard labels while my educator side was excited to have my students use them during our PBL project.
Here is a little information about ChalkOla markers:
All ChalkOla products are water based and non-toxic. Great to use with the kiddos.
The markers work on any non-porous surface: chalkboard, dry erase boards, plastic and glass.
Clean up is very simple using a cleaning wipe or damp cloth.
I have always wanted to try chalk markers, so the day my package came I was like a kid in candy store. I received an 8 Count of Jumbo Neon Markers and a 16 Count of Chalk Pens and Metallic Markers. I honestly loved using the markers; the colors came off bright and vibrant and they were as easy to use as normal markers. Due to the high density of the chalk ink it does take a minute to get the markers working initially, but after that using them is a breeze. We tried using it on various surfaces (chalkboard, dry erase board, glass mirror and chalkboard labels) and the markers performed equally well across them all. I will say that the neon colors looked really good against the black background of the chalkboard and chalkboard labels.
My favorite aspect was the easy and straightforward clean up, especially after using them with a 3 year old. I simply used either a Clorox or baby wipe to clean the ink from any of the various test surfaces even after it had completely dried. Another nice attribute I noticed is that after cleaning the ink from a surface and letting it dry there was no residue like you may have with normal or dry erase markers. This means you don’t have to worry about having weird hues appear in your creations after erasing an old image from your drawing surface.
