Best Washable Markers for Kids

Drawing and coloring are essential parts of the childhood experience. But every parent or teacher has seen the other part of that experience — surfaces covered in marker that you can’t remove. Rather than banishing coloring and art supplies from the home or classroom, just get washable markers. Check out our top picks for the best washable markers for kids.

Children will love that these broad-tipped washable markers offer vivid colors that don’t bleed and dry quickly. Parents will like how easily they can be cleaned off hands and surfaces.

This set supplies 36 washable markers in a variety of bold and pastel hues. Plus they come in a cute container that makes storage a breeze when coloring time is over.

With so many colors to choose from, young artists will be sure to find the hue they desire.

These washable markers allow for precision control with a conical tip that gives kids the ability to make fine or broad strokes depending on how they hold the marker.

This set of 8 washable markers is on our list because it also comes with 200 downloadable coloring PDF sheets — creating endless ways to keep little hands and minds occupied.
