When Roo got to about 18 months old he loved colouring and especially using chalk boards.
I came across this clever idea of using chalkboard paint to paint the walls in your child’s playroom or bedroom and I just think it is so inspired! What better way to encourage your little ones creative ability than to allow them to express themselves on a canvas of that size!
I have seen this done on all scales, some people painting whole walls top to bottom, others (like myself) painting part of the wall to create an art corner of sorts. I stripped the wall paper off and painted the naked wall in a double coat of chalkboard paint, it really was as easy as that!
Now I know you might be thinking, “That’s a terrible idea, the kids will draw everywhere!” but they don’t! Roo never deviates from his little chalk wall, and he uses it all the time.
I would strongly recommend giving this a go, it isn’t difficult to put back to normal if you change your mind, but it is so much fun for the kids!
