Would it be weird if we took up DS's carpet & painted his floor with the chalk board paint? Im contemplating it but am just not sure.

 I wouldn't just because I wouldn't want the chalk dust to spread to other places. What made you think of the floor?

It would be fun for him. Maybe do a little section and see how you like it?

It's not made to hold up well (like floor paint is) so it would likely peel up or wear off rather quickly. Not to mention...wouldn't that just cause him to put little chalk footprints all over your house? Lol

I used to manage a paint store if that makes me more credible :)

Hmmm. I would do the closet doors. Chalk on the floor will get all over everything he has and his feet.

1 mom liked this
Hes 3 1/2, and i thought instead of him getting mad that he cant reach all the way up his wall, that he would enjoy just sitting on the floor to draw.

It's a cute idea. Maybe not in his room. Maybe do a section in the garage?

Thats what i thought. But as some moms pointed out, the chalk on feet thing, that wouldnt be good for the rest of my house lol.
