Rock Painting with Chalkola | AD

*This is a paid post

Over the course of the pandemic the children have spotted so many painted rocks left locally and many communities have created Covid Snakes made of painted rocks or kindness rocks projects too. This has made the children so excited to paint their own rocks and it’s a really fun activity to do with the children too.

We’ve tried many different materials to decorate and paint rocks but our favourite so far has been Chalkola Chalk Markers. With a wide variety of colours and really beautiful results, the children love them.

What are Chalkola Chalk Markers?

Chalkola Chalk Markers are a liquid version of traditional chalk, making them much easier and cleaner to use. They come in such ,lovely colours – bright neons, pastels and even shimmering metallics – giving so many more colour options compared to traditional chalk too and without any dust in sight either!

The chalkboard markers are non-toxic, completely child safe, easy to clean and work great on so many surfaces. They can be used on anything from a typical blackboard or whiteboard to windows and even crockery. But, we used them first on rocks!

How do you use the chalk pens?

The liquid chalk markers are so easy to use – give them a little shake, remove the lid and pump the nib until the colour shows and then let your creativity run wild! The children found them so easy to use and were painting rocks soon after opening the packet.

The range of colours are fantastic for creating so many different designs and the children loved picking out their favourite colour chalk paint pens and finding colours that were perfect for all their rock painting ideas.

On many materials like chalkboards, glass, mugs and plastic containers the chalk markers are erasable so you can design, erase and design again indefinitely. This is great for a blackboard in your kitchen with the weekly meal plan on it, signs in a restaurant or even drawing on the front windows so that people walking by can appreciate your artwork.

On other porous materials like rocks, paper, cardboard or fabric the markers are permanent. The children loved using the chalk markers on the rocks knowing that the designs would be there forever. The children really enjoyed their rock art and we loved watching them creating something timeless that they can leave in the garden to appreciate for years to come or drop on a walk for another child to find.

What were our overall thoughts of the Chalkola Chalk Markers?

We loved using the chalk markers. They’re great quality, have a really good capacity and work well. They have a nice, steady flow and were easy to use even with the children’s little hands. They’re sturdy, perfect for family life and have so many uses – the children are already looking for more things around the house and garden to decorate!
