Would you let your kids draw on the walls?

I saw it in a reply to a question a few days ago.

  • no but as a kid I did on a door...i don't remember if I got into trouble..probably son did take a marker and draw on the kitchen floor..i just explained to him not to do this again that mommy can't get this was a ceramic are curious and want to feel texture so I put a piece of paper down and let him scribble on that...but, I wouldn't suggest that for the wall...

  • No. My kids, even my 2 year old know that pens, pencils, and crayons are for on paper only. I don't see the reason for it?

  • nope. my daughter was caught doing it and she got punished. btw nail polish remover gets crayon out of walls without taking off the paint, for future reference lol

  • No, like hannah said, pens crayons markers etc is for PAPER. not walls.

    If my daughter ever drew on anything other than paper she would be punished.

  • I didn't let him, but he decided to take it upon himself to practice his printing skills on his walls when he was in KIndergarten. I took pictures and he had a not so fun time scrubbing the walls. I used Mr. Clean Magic Erassers to get the Sharpie Marker off the walls.
