Love the idea of a blackboard wall but hate chalk? Try a dry-erase wall on for size! While I like the look of chalk and appreciate the old-school aspect of it, I have to say that I detest the dust it creates and the mess it leaves on wee hands. But what's not to like about a marker board?

Parents looking for an innovative yet simple way to provide a creative space for their tots should consider turning one wall in the house in a marker free-for-all. A blank wall, a paintbrush, a bucket of IdeaPaint and a packet of markers is all one needs to get the artistic juices flowing. Now mommy just needs to decide which wall to convert!
