I CAN Write on the Walls?

Growing up, writing on the walls was a big no-no. Especially since we didn't even have washable markers back then. Fortunately for kids (and their parents) time and technology have changed all that. Turn the "no-no" into a "yes-yes," and let your half-pint explore their creative side. These products would be perfectly placed in a child's bedroom, play room or craft room. And adults may enjoy writing on the walls as much as the kids!
This fun product has made huge advances over the years. There are now several manufacturers who offer blackboard paint; it is easy to apply and it performs well, making it perfect for the DIY-er.

This product allows you to create a white board virtually anywhere. Because there is no predetermined frame needed, there are no limits to application or size.

These wall coverings from F. Schumacher are reminiscent of giant coloring book pages. Although beautiful in black and white, we think these could be enhanced by a little Crayola. Probably best suited for a child who likes to stay in the lines. View more at www.fschumacher.com.
