I love a stationery item which has lots of purposes. Chalk Ola are so versatile as they write on so many surfaces and can be used for many different crafts and for around the home. We were sent two packs of Ola markers to try out.
Chalk Pens – Pack of 8 Earthy colour markers
The markers are in lovely earthy colours and would be suitable for lots of natural crafts. The pack costs £10.90 which is a great price as you get eight different colours. The markers work on pretty much any non porous surface. They work on card, mirror or chalkboard, glass, metal, plastic, tiles and so many more. The markers use a water based ink so you can wipe them away with a wet cloth if you make a mistake. These are great for writing on materials to use in school. You can write letters on stones or wood slices to make a fun resource for the children to use.
Chalk Pens – Pack of 8 Earth colour markers – Use on Whiteboard, Chalkboard, Window, Blackboard, Bistros Glass – 6 mm Bullet Tip
Chalk Pens – Pack of 10 neon colour markers
I love the bright vivid colours of these markers. They are so fun to you and come in ten vibrant colours. They are a lovely resource for in the classroom ro home. They are safe for children to use and so brilliant for practising your times tables or spellings on a chalkboard. They definitely make learning more fun. You can create designs on paper, non porous walls, car windows, signs, books, blackboards, Scrapbooks, hand lettering, stencil ink.
The markers wipe off really easily with water or with a wet wipe. They should also come off in the washing machine if you accidently get them on your clothes. When you first use the markers you need to shake them really well and press down a few times to get the ink to go through the nib. After that they flow really smoothly and produce a satisfying paint-like effect. The bullet tip gives a really precise line which provides an accurate finish. I will be using these markers every day.
