Parents Encouraging Kids to Scribble on the Walls

Share Article

There is a new paint on the market that allows you to turn any wall into a dry erase board.

Many parents begin home schooling their kids without realizing the costs involved. Between text books, school supplies, and learning materials, the last thing parents can afford is a chalk board or dry erase board.

Obviously, having a chalk board or dry erase board is an important tool for teaching, but they can cost anywhere from $8 to $20 per foot. To do a whole room, this could cost around $7,000. A good quality 4’ by 8’ dry erase board runs anywhere from $250-800.

There are alternatives of course. There are dry erase wallpapers available, but they can cost almost as much as buying a whole board, and are just not worth the trouble when you factor in the mess and extra labor required to install them. Plus, who wants their walls covered in dry erase wall paper? Not exactly home décor at its best.

Divina S. from Emmetsburg, Iowa turned to a product called Markee to help her with home schooling her children. "I started home schooling my children about four months ago and it has been difficult with no write board or chalk board. Which I couldn't afford either one," she said. “I bought Markee Dry Erase Paint and it is wonderful. It makes teaching my children so much easier. My thirteen year old son even helped me apply it!” she said.

Dry erase paint is a revolutionary product that goes on clear over an existing paint job, and turns any surface into a dry erase board. You turn an entire room into a dry erase board without sacrificing your beautiful paint job.

A spokesman for Markee Dry Erase Paint, said, “If you’re a parent, you know how important it is for your children to be allowed to express themselves creatively and artistically.” The company maintains that Markee is perfect for a playroom, classroom, or bedroom, and provides children with walls they can write, draw, and invent all over.
