Tip 9 – Paint a blackboard to draw on
Do you have children who like to draw their art on the wall instead of on a paper? We have and solved it by gluing on one part of the wall and inside of their closets a DIY – colouring wallpaper. So they have a clearly defined space where they can be creative without getting into trouble (mind you that is the theory!) Another option is to use a specialized black paint that can be drawn on. In effect it will look like a black board. If you worry that black paint is too dark for your particular colour scheme, you can always get this special paint mixed in whatever colour you wish. Truly your painted wall can be changed into a creative canvas! What if you worry that you will not like it and you will be stuck with it forever? Then just search for a Dry Erase Paint. You might be surprised how much fun your family can have with it.
