Best Liquid Chalk Markers for Kids

Open highlighter on color background, space for text

Kids love chalk, but it can be messy. Liquid chalk markers are a fun alternative. These fun writing tools create consistent lines with bold color payoff. Best of all, they’re usually made from washable pigments that dry quickly and can be easily wiped off of writing surfaces with water. We’ve picked out our favorites of these low-mess liquid chalk markers.

Because of the smaller diameter, we think these kids’ liquid chalk markers are best for children elementary-aged or older.

We like that these liquid chalk markers come with both a chisel and fine tip. You’ll get bold neon colors as well as a white marker.

You’ll like that this liquid chalk marker set comes with three replacement tips, 24 chalkboard labels and changing tweezers that make removing the tips easy to do.

You’ll love that this kids’ liquid chalk marker set comes with reversible tips, giving you the freedom to choose between bold and chisel tips to create thick or thin lines.

These liquid chalk markers can be used on a variety of non-porous surfaces. They’re also odor- and dust-free.

Expert Commentary

Liquid chalk markers can be used to draw on any non-porous surface, including slippery ones, allowing kids the freedom to explore their full artistic potential and making for a super-easy clean-up afterward. Compared to regular chalk sticks, these markers are dust- and odor-free, which make these perfect for kids since young ones are more prone to developing allergies to such fine articles. There is a wide variety of colors available in these sets with rich color pigmentation, providing kids with a good color range to work with and resulting in remarkable artworks.
