Great for Crafty Tots!

Wow who would have thought that are kids would be able to write on walls with no worries to us Parents. I wish they had this back in the day when I was growing up. My 2 little girls LOVE to write on walls and chairs and tables and well lets face it anything and everything they can! Creative for them and no fun for Mom because I have to clean it up, or figure out a way to get the Black Permanent Marker off the White Walls, UGH! I thought if I got this would it make my kids want to still write on everything and think its ok, or would they understand that they can ONLY write on the chalk board paint area or dry erase area? They do have a Crayola 3in1 Craft Easel with the dry erase and chalk board, they love it and use it everyday and that has helped my walls and floors and pictures marker free so far.  I think that this paint would not only be fun but it would make them understand they can only draw or write in this certain area and in the end they get to be creative and have fun! I mean not every kid has a cool wall just for them to draw on right! ;D

The reviews on Amazon are really good for this product and I think everyone should have this for their kids who are school age it makes learning fun and it could be helpful for imaginary play they can play school.

Now for the Technical Details on the Dry Erase Paint:

Customize dry erase surface into any unique shape or place in office or home. Only paint of its kind that creates a true writable-erasable finish.

Product Description:
RUST-OLEUM-Dry Erase Paint. First there was chalkboard paint and magnetic paint now they have introduced a dry erase paint. This would be great for a child's bedroom playroom or home office. It is described as a smooth hard finish that creates a unique white writable/erasable surface. Once dry simply use any dry erase markers to draw or write messages and then erase. Application is easy and has minimal odor making it safe to use indoors. Covers a 7 ft. x 7 ft. area. Made in China.

OK so this would be fun also I see "Minimal odor" on the "Technical Details" info and it makes me worried
I hope that is only for when it is still wet from applying onto the surface your using not all the time! Other than that this product would be fantastic for a bit of an older kid I think because the makers are able to get marks on more areas than chalk if it drops to the floor or if the child forgets to put the cap back on at lease chalk doesn't dry out. I know my little one has a hard time of putting the cap back on when she is finished she just sets the marker down and leaves it. Another way I think would be super fun for either of these paints would be for a BOW HOLDER you could have them draw their own designs or write on their own Bow Holder how unique would that be!!! Since I make bows and Bow Holders I'm always looking for new ways to make the holders unique and fun and I think this would be such a great idea what do you thing?
