A little over a week ago I got a big brown box delivered to my front door. This is what was inside:
I was SO excited!! Not only was this to be our first product review- but what a fun product to try. These dry erase markers from Kleen Slate Concepts have an eraser right on the lid. When I was a school teacher, the pinky side of my hand was always black from erasing the board with my hand- an eraser on the back of the marker? Brilliant.
Now, I was already sold on the markers, but then I gave the Kleen Slate Paddles a try. These are fantastic! My first experience with the paddles: a 20 minute car ride, 3 year old and 4 year old with paddles and marker in hand. For 20 minutes my boys drew pictures and wrote their names. The markers worked the whole time, never fading or drying out. The boys can easily slide their markers in and out of the paddles themselves. We kept a couple of the paddles in the car all week and the boys have loved them.
Another experience with the paddles: a 70 minute church meeting. I let the boys bring the paddles, and the package of colored markers, to church and they were a hit. My boys loved using them and passing them between the benches with their friends. All of the kids loved them!
