Picking the right washable marker for your little artist may be difficult. Many factors to consider include tips, storage and how washable the ink is from clothes and skin. Not all washable markers are created equal. The age of your child will also affect your decision also.
Crayola Doodling Fine Line
Crayola makes a big line of washable markers. This markers have a fine tip and are made exclusively for doodling. The cardboard box includes all of the basic colors like red, blue, green and yellow. Many prettier colors including pink and purple. Most Crayola markers are cost more then most. You are simply paying for the name. These markers wash vary well off of the walls or tables with a sponge (Mr Cleans’ Magic Eraser works best). Clothing may be a different story, but if you catch it soon then most of the stains will come out. The real problem is when you get it on your skin. My daughter loves to ‘accidentally’ color on herself. This may take a few days to get completely clean.
Roseart Child’s First Washable Markers
This set of markers from Roseart includes all of the same colors as the Crayola brand, and does have something unique. This set comes with a plastic durable case, and the markers will not fit into the case correctly unless the caps are snapped securely on the markers. This can be advantage in ink life. This will prevent the markers from drying out. The quality of the drawing does not seem to differ from more expensive brand of markers and you can usually get these markers at a discount rate compared to others. These markers are board and only come in a package of eight. The have the same satiability as the Crayola brand with the skin being the most difficult surface to get wash off.
Newell Rubbermaid Washable Dry Erase Markers
Many kids use dry erase boards in school. Therefore, it may be a smart idea to invest in a washable set. Most of the dry erase markers out in the market are not really made to be washable. I can’t remember how many times my son came home from kindergarten with ink all over his arm or fingers. This was incredible hard to wash off. However, Newell Rubbermaid has come out with a brand of washable dry erase markers. I have not used these yet, but they promise to be washable from skin and clothes.
Choosing the right markers for your child can depend on many different things. You must decide what case you want, the colors you want included and how washable is washable. Crayola, Roseart, and Newell Rubbermaid are just three brand of washable markers to look at when shopping for markers.
