AD/Gifted. A few years ago we transformed the nursery into a proper bedroom for the boy. We painted a wall blue and covered it in glow in the dark stars and planets. Ever since we have been adding space themed accessories. It’s a lovely room and when it’s tidy, it’s a really inviting, fun place to hang out. Over the weekend we’ve added a new, out of this world decoration; we put up a wipe clean, vinyl colour in poster from Colour My Wall.
Colour My Wall are an independent family owned business based in Ottershaw Surrey. They have created a range of vinyl prints which you can colour in and wipe clean. It is designed to inspire children’s creativity and save your walls from being drawn on too much.
There are a whole range of themes to choose from; from jungle, to fairy-tales; cats to under the sea; space and much, much more. Each design is hand drawn and lovely, there’s lots of detail and lots of fun things to colour in. Prices start at £49.
The Colour My Wall vinyl posters come with easy instructions on how to put it on the wall. They don’t come with pens, and you will need to use dry wipe markers which can be rubbed off. We picked up a set of pens from Tesco for a couple of pounds. The pens wipe off really well and leave no residue.
The poster was really easy to put up, it did take two pairs of hands and if you don’t get it right, or you need to move it to another wall, it just peels off and is easily reapplied elsewhere.
It took us minutes to put the poster up. When my son saw it, it was instant love. He busily got to work colouring it in and then rubbing it out again, refining his work. It’s such a brilliant idea and as long as you use the dry wipe markers, you can colour it in forever. What’s also great, is that when the kids grow, you can peel the poster off the wall and stick it back on, just a bit higher up.
The Colour My Wall vinyl posters are also really good for –
- Helps develop children’s fine motor skills
- Helps develop hand eye co-ordination
- Can help increase attention span and concentration levels
- Aids children passion for colouring and art
- Helps children identify objects and animals
- Helps inspire children’s imagination
- Offers hours of fun and enjoyment.
I just think these posters are such a great idea. I’ve had years of scrubbing at walls which have been scrawled on. I think had he had one of these he might have channelled his inner artist away from the hallway and onto the poster in his room. I also think the space themed poster is fabulous. There’s so much detail to colour in and enjoy and it looks so good in his room.
