Liquid Chalkers - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I'm pretty free with my kids using creativity.  Paints, markers, clay, and glitter are allowed at my house.  It's the mess afterwards that I'm not real fond of. I either have to scrub till I'm sore or pick up pieces off the floor.

Adam and Emma were super stoked when they received Liquid Chalkers as a new tool for creativity. I became stoked when I learned they don't create a big mess.

Liquid Chalkers are wet erase marker pens with liquid chalk as the ink. They are designed to allow for inspiration and talent with no messes or smears. One package we received was a 4-pack of white Liquid Chalkers and the other package contained eight bold colors.

We quickly learned the right way and the wrong way to use Liquid Chalkers. Don't be hasty and think you can start automatically writing with the liquid chalk markers. Adam thought they were broke at first because they didn't write immediately. (If he would've just read the packaging first!) The markers work by first depressing the tips gently and holding down until the ink starts to flow into the tip and coats the tip. It takes just a few short seconds for each maker. The tips of the Liquid Chalkers are fine point, but you can turn them to the side for a bigger stroke. The markers are non-toxic.


Liquid Chalkers work with most surfaces, but it's important to test surfaces before writing on them. Liquid Chalkers wipe off super easily from most non-porous surfaces but don't wipe off very well from porous ones. Once we tested a few surfaces, Adam and Emma were all over the house creating images with the markers.



Emma pretty much covered every window upstairs while Adam took care of the downstairs windows. Halloween sayings and silly men now adorn every window in my house. The mirrors are also scribbled with silly sayings. It doesn't bother me a bit because we were careful to first test surfaces and I like seeing their artwork all over the place.

To test how well Liquid Chalkers wipe off, I took a Clorox wipe to one window creation. I was pleased as punch when I saw how easy it was to wipe off. It didn't take any scrubbing at all. Just a couple swipes and the image was erased.
Jason has used the white Liquid Chalkers on his race car a couple times during drag races. He much prefers them over the white shoe paint he's been using. The liquid chalk markers don't smear or run upon application.

Emma and Adam have already informed me they are now in charge of "window decorating" around the house during the holidays and they plan on adding new creations with Liquid Chalkers once Thanksgiving is upon us.

Win It!
One person will win an 8-pack of colored Liquid Chalkers and a 4-pack of white Liquid Chalkers (ARV $32).
