Rainbow Chalk have been producing chalk based products for over 25 years. They’re one of those products that you wouldn’t immediately think of to buy but are absolutely brilliant, and you’ll wonder how you survived parenthood without them!

Liquid chalk markers come in loads of different colours so you (or your kids) can pick and choose your favourites. They’re fab for craft activities like the ones above, or why not try out a bit of supervised graffiti on your patio or fence!

You can buy the markers in 5mm or 15mm nib size from Rainbow Chalk, either as single colours or in multi packs. For schools, nurseries or clubs the multipacks are also available for bulk purchases. Or why not try a combo pack, with two types of liquid chalk markers, blackboard paint and cleaner (suitable for blackboards or glass).

Rainbow Chalk markers are fully washable so you could have great fun creating masterpieces and then hosing them off, or watch the effect when the summer rain arrives. If you’re feeling really adventurous, grab some blackboard paint and make your own reusable art area, either inside or out – fantastic for keeping kids of all ages occupied at BBQs, parties or even weddings. Liquid chalk markers also work on glass so you could attempt to upcycle some old empty jars. And at the risk of sounding like a proper old lady, you can use them for writing on tupperware before it goes in the freezer!

For more grown up craft products, Rainbow Chalk sell a range of paints like shabby chic furniture chalk paint, in formats for both indoor and outdoor furniture. Chalk paint gives a really lovely modern yet retro finish to furniture; I’ve used it many a time for changing my children’s furniture to their preferred colour! All the paints are non-toxic, environmentally friendly and conform to the relevant safety standards.
