We’ve been trying out Chalkola – child-safe washable chalk pens for chalkboards, glass, whiteboards, plastic and more!

We love trying out new art and craft materials! This week my son and I have been checking out various products from Chalkola! Read on to find out all about them and get a 15% off discount code from Amazon!
The first pack I tried was the set of 10 chalk pens with 6 metallic markers.
Before handing them over to my son I did my own tests. Now due to the high density chalk ink the chalk do need a little help to get them started – a little shaking then pressing down on the nib to get the chalk ink flowing. But this is a one-time-only deal if you store them horizontally, so I suggest you do what I did and do this on your own without anyone trying to grab them from you before they’re ready!
I tried out the chalk pens on black card to see the colors. They were so vibrant!
Next I tried the metallic markers which are perfect for glass. They don’t need any advance preparation so I made a cute heart design on a wine glass. The ink dries very quickly, and should you not want the design any more, you can just wash it off with warm water!
The second pack I tried was a set of 8 neon chalk window markers. These giant 15mm tips are perfect for big designs!
It was a gray and dull day outside so I decided to liven up my kitchen window!
I love how the style of the nib let me create different effects – I bet they would be great for classrooms. And it was super easy to remove, too!
I finally decided to let my son try out the products, too! All these pens are non-toxic, low odor, and washable. The chalk pens are ideal for chalkboards, whiteboards, plastic and pretty much any non-porous surface – although it’s always best to test a small area first. I had some spare chalkboard Contact paper and covered an old toddler placemat. This gave my son a permanent board that he could use to draw on, then wipe off, then start again!
Did he draw flowers? Fireworks? Stars? No – he took one look at it and immediately drew a race track!
This was his finished masterpiece:
And just in case he wants to draw something different, we just have to wash it off with a baby wipe or damp cloth, and he can start again!
