I love to surprise my family members with secret messages and little goodies tucked away inside their lunch bag, backpack or any place where they wouldn’t expect it.
I have been known to write on the bathroom mirror in lipstick. I do it to wish family members a “Happy Birthday” or just to tell my husband that I love him. I have to use lipstick because I don’t want to use something that could potentially stain the mirror, or worse yet, not come off at all.
Are you familiar with chalk markers? They look like regular markers but instead of ink they are filled with liquid chalk that dries instantly on the surface. The final result looks and feels like like chalk – and it even washes away like chalk – except with the precision of a marker.
Here is an example of something I made at my previous job using chalk markers.
You can’t tell from this photo but I used a pencil eraser to make veins in the leaves.
I could have never had done with with regular chalk. Regular chalk is very messy to use.
Fun Chalk Markers are the most versatile markers and can be used on any non-porous surface (ex. plastic, ceramics, chalkboards, whiteboards, glass, mirrors).
You don’t have to work in a classroom or have access to a chalkboard to enjoy Fun Chalk Markers. You can use them for craft projects, around the home and more.
Here are some ideas of how to use Fun Chalk Markers:
- perfect for scrapbooking
- for a variety of arts and crafts
- create chalkboard signs that pop with color
- decorate the windows in your home and car for special occasions
- add a personal touch to bike helmets
- organize your storage bins, since you can erase the ink from plastic when you decide to use the bin for something else
- write inspirational messages to yourself and family members on mirrors and windows
- write the names of your guests on their wine glasses
- help motivate you to exercise by writing your routine on a mirror
- write grocery lists or meal plans on the fridge with Fun Chalk
- use them to add a touch of color to your hair for fun occasions
- teachers love using Fun Chalk in their classrooms because they only need one marker to write on their chalkboard, whiteboard, glass windows and doors (no dust like traditional chalk)
Best o all they are non-toxic, odor-free, washable and eco-friendly.
These are so easy to wash off. Even when they are 100% dry and they appear permanent – they are not. Simply take a little water on a paper towel and wipe it clean. Since they are chalk you can also just brush it off with your hand or a chalk eraser.
I’ve used these on the bathroom mirror (to leave messages for family members), on our sliding glass door to decorate for the holiday/season and I even used them on stone (similar to a chalkboard) drink coasters to decorate for the holiday/season. Currently they are decorated for Christmas. The next time we’ll have guests over for a dinner party will be Easter, so I’ll just wash the coasters off and decorate them with flowers and/or bunnies for Easter when the time comes.
Unlike traditional chalk, Fun Chalk markers are easier to handle. You can make fine lines and dots with Fun Chalk which is not easy to do with regular chalk. Fun Chalk colors are also move vibrant. They look and feel like markers. It’s hard to believe they are really chalk.
Here are some other examples if the fun things you can do with Fun Chalk (all photos copyrighted to Fun Chalk and are found on the brand’s Instagram page – @FunChalk). You can see each photo on Instagram just by clicking the photo.
I especially love the above photo because it shows you the tremendous difference between regular chalk and Fun Chalk. Once you use Fun Chalk Markers how can you ever go back to regular chalk? I sure can’t.
My doodles and text are not as elaborate or nice as the ones from the Fun Chalk Instagram page. I would love to make the holiday lights on our windows. I also love the mirror idea.
Speaking of ideas, you can see more wonderful things created with Fun Chalk Markers on their Facebook page.
You can use these chalks in a variety of ways. They will stay “as is” until you remove them or they accidentally get wet or removed. Another words, the little red hearts I drew on the bathroom mirror for my husband could stay there indefinitely or until the next time I clean the mirrors.
Fun Chalk Markers are exactly that – FUN! Every home should have a set (or two). They come in a variety of colors. You never know when you might need them.
