Trying out our new U.S.Bilby liquid chalk markers! Fun Family activity!

Phew – today went by in a flash!

We had a full day of people in the house. Two days ago our fridge broke down, so we had to get that diagnosed today – turns out we need a new fridge – will report on it shortly. Then we had someone come in to watch our baby while I went on a cleaning spree – watch out, my house might actually get cleaner by Thanksgiving! Then we did a coloring activity with the kids – this was so much fun – I didn’t think it would be necessarily – but the sisters did not bicker, just really enjoyed each other’s company – this is really all a mother needs after a long day – watching her kids busy with a fun coloring experimentation!

Let your kids create with chalk markers

Here is what we did – we actually did two activities today with our new U.S.Bilby chalk markers. These are the new amazing markers that work so well – it is actually a pretty new product for me – have you ever heard about liquid chalk markers before? The beauty of these is that you can use them on so many surfaces – and they work so well on any and all possible places. Anyone knows how cool markers are, but they don’t work very well on plastic, and they look a bit funny, and most of the time the ones that do work are hard to remove afterwards.

Well, U.S.Bilby chalk markers are great because they produce such a stunning effect when you use them for coloring – they do look like real chalk! They are easily washable, so if you end up having your kids coloring on your table instead of the coloring pad – no worries, this all goes away in a flash with a simple wipe-off.

Coloring with U.S.Bilby liquid chalk markers

Today we experimented with the kids on two different surfaces. We tried the markers on little plastic coloring shapes I got for them at a craft store – very inexpensive. They had a lot of fun, the two sisters, just enjoying chatting with each other, and having fun. I made a video of them trying out the markers – check it out!

So, what did I like about these markers? They can be used for a multitude of surfaces, they are so bright and produce such stunning pictures! You can use them for any design you like, and get your kids to experiment with their own designs as well. Because the markers are so bright, they are good to use for signs or some cool motivational words, and that’s what we did for the second activity with the markers.

Get the kids excited to create with chalk markers

For the second activity, we used some special black paper we had, and created some cool writing, added some glitter for fun, and just enjoyed the effect of what a marker can do on black paper! We will be practicing some fonts with the kids, and what a great way to practice if you have a blackboard where you write down what’s for dinner, or make some little notes to yourself – these chalk markers immediately add so much character to the writing! I can see these chalk markers used for bistro markers, or for blackboard chalk even as they are so easy to wipe off.

What stands out for me with this particular brand is that the caps are easy to put on, and they stay on these markers, so you are not running into the issue of having your liquid chalk markers drying out on you – so thankful for this as now I know we will be using them for many more coloring opportunities.

  1. My kids love everything deemed arts and crafts as do yours 🙂 Never thought about using our chalk markers to color sun catchers though ~ thanks!

  2. I am a big lover of chalk markers. You have given me some great ideas on how to use them, some that I wouldn’t have thought of!

  3. I use a whiteboard in almost every group I run at work. How nice it will be to be able to add some color to my groups and brighten things up a little!

  4. I would give them to my mom’s classroom so that the kids can make their name tags for their desk and locker.

  5. I would use these to write on my chalkboard. I usually write an inspirational quote each week. This would allow me to add some color to my quotes.

  6. I love this, I think these markers are awesome! and to think you can do your windows, on paper and so much more with them..

  7. It looks like they have a great range of colors. I have a different set of chalk markers but need a new one and have been seeing this set around, I may have to give it a try.

  8. I have a different brand of chalk markers, but they are a little hard to use. These seem pretty darn cool! I like that you have kids using them too. With mine, adults are better off using them. My granddaughter tried, but it was very hard for her! Thank you for the information! God bless and Happy Holidays everyone!

  9. TIP 1: For some fun in the classroom – these markers may be used on Bow Tie pasta shells to paint different coloured butterflies. They look totally awesome.
    TIP 2: The markers have a silver ball inside to mix the thick ink with fluorescence and water so the tip needs to be pushed gently, then replace cap and shake for 30 seconds from side to side and up and down. Some markers take up to 2 minutes to get the ink to flow and that means the ink is quality material. They need to be reprimed before each use and recap tightly.

  10. The would be really fun to use on Easter Eggs too. I bet they would wipe off if you messed up. I will have to try 🙂

  11. I would probably like to use these awesome markers to make a chalkboard daily planner board…or even a weekly planner board! I could write down the daily or weekly schedule and have lots of fun doing it! 🙂

  12. I would use these to decorate my windows for Christmas. I would do snowmen, reindeer, santa’s…it would be so much fun.

  13. I am going to label the dishes at Christmas with the type of food it is. Not just the name (green bean casserole) but also will show what diets are supported (gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan).

  14. I’d love to use them for the stained glass figures you can buy. Way cleaner than stained glass paint and more control for younger users 🙂

  15. Markers are always a fun choice as long as they are able to be washed out of clothing 🙂 I love the stained glass look of these projects!

  16. I have never heard of these before. This is something my grandchildren would love. I love the fact that it is easy to clean up and won’t stain anything. Thank you so much for sharing this

  17. my son’s special needs class would love these, He is autistic and in a small special needs class.

  18. I love your idea of using them on the window pane decals!! What an easy way to stay inside the lines and have a great decor piece after!!

  19. these look way less messier than regular chalk, my autistic son, doesnt really like it. these would be interesting to try.

  20. Ive never heard of these chalk markers! I love how they look but im wondering if they still leave chalk dust?

  21. LOVE that the caps are easy to put on!! I swear I find so many dried up markers because my son only half put the cap back on, not by any fault of his own! They are just that difficult to put back!! Which is crazy!!

  22. This chalk markers look like so much fun! I love how vibrant the colors are! 🙂 My artist daughter would love using these, thanks for sharing!

  23. I love chalk pens!!! My kids do too! The colors are so bright and I don’t have to worry about it staining! Life is much less stressful when I don’t have to worry about the mess during arts and crafts time! lol

  24. You handled it well with this project. We almost lost the oven but somehow got it fixed during the whole Christmas @ our house with 15 people here but then the microwave died fortunately after they left.

  25. I have these liquid chalk markers and they are so awesome! You can write on pretty much anything!

  26. This sounds like a fun thing to do with my grandchildren. I need to get out and find these soon. My grandkids get bored easily and this would be great for a quiet activity. Thank you so much for sharing

  27. I love this post, which gives you awesome ideas to do with your children or grandchildren.

  28. These sound great–my 5 y/o grandson and the neighbor kids he plays w/ would love these. Thanks for the info.

  29. These look like so much fun! My oldest would love using them on the black paper! What a creative idea! I’ll have to try this on our next rainy day!

  30. These are so cool!!!! My 8 year old son is extremely artistic I know he would love these! My 9 and 2 year old daughter would also enjoy them because they like to play with ordinary sidewalk chalk and these are definitely an upgrade compared to them!

  34. i wonder how they cleaned up! i’ve tried other chalk markers and they stained the surface i used them on. i love the idea of using the ‘stain glass’ shapes wth chalk markers! great for doing and redoing them every so often.
