Who doesn’t love a chalkboard? A big, blank slate to scribble and draw whatever you want….and then erase it all and start over again? Yes please!! I’ve often thought a whole chalkboard wall would be fun to have in the house, but I don’t quite have the guts to do it. Maybe some day…..
But 8-year-old Liam and I recently had the chance to do a small chalkboard project together. Lullaby Paints, maker of award-winning, safe, eco-friendly paints, sent us a chalkboard paint kit to review.
Why use Lullaby chalkboard paints?
For lots of reasons:
- Completely non-toxic ingredients
- No VOCs (volitile organic compounds) – that’s zero, zilch, nada!
- Safe for kids to use and babies to breathe
- So safe they can be sent in the mail (unlike most paints)
- Odor free
- Fully washable
- Choice of 16 beautiful colors
Lullaby’s Chalkboard Paint Kit comes with everything you need to get your project off the ground: paint (sufficient for a board of thirty square feet with two coats), roller, plastic tray, edging tape, instructions and chalk.
Easy chalkboard toy box
Liam thought it would be cool to have a chalkboard toy box. Since we already had this wooden, rolling toy box from Ikea, we decided to give it a makeover instead of buying something new.
First, we taped off the edges with the blue painter’s tape. Then we squeezed the paint into the handy, plastic tray. Liam applied the first coat of paint with the roller brush.
We waited a day, and then applied a second coat of paint. One more day of waiting and then it was time to take off the tape.
It’s cute, huh? He loves it!
