Chalkboard Paint: Creative Communication for Kids

It’s back-to-school time!

Sharpen the pencils, load the backpacks and send the kids back to class. Learning doesn’t have to stop in the classroom, so why not give your child a little extra space for creativity and to work on some of those math problems? Skip the electronics and go old-school with new paint. Not just any paint. Chalkboard paint.

Chalkboard Paint is Good Clean Fun

Few of us can resist the urge to leave our own mark when we happen across a blank chalkboard. There’s something about that wide open space that invites creativity, or at least a doodle or two.

Now that the house is a bit quieter with everyone back to school, it’s the perfect time to freshen up your child’s room with a new coat of whatever their favorite color is this year, paired with a chalkboard wall designed to fuel personal expression, and maybe even increased communication between parent and child!

What Is Chalkboard Paint?

Chalkboard paint is specifically designed to allow everyone to do what we’ve avoided for years: write on the walls. The paint itself creates a hard, scratch-resistant surface that will hold up well to repeated application and erasing of chalk. Chalkboard walls infuse a sense of whimsy and foster easy communication through a somewhat non-traditional channel. Even as a parent, it’s likely you’ll be drawn to leave your mark on an irresistible surface.

How Should I Start?

Incorporating a more creative surface is easily accomplished with the help of a painting professional. Choose a painting contractor invested in your local community is a good first step. Quality painting professionals are in the business of building long-term relationships, and they work hard to start off on the right foot from day one. First order of business?  Get an estimate.

Quality From Start to Finish

A painting craftsperson will not only office color advice, they’ll properly prepare and prime the surface prior to applying paint. Detailed preparation work results in a long-lasting finish that will stand up to years of creative doodling, inspirational quotes and maybe even a few unexpected conversations.
