Design the Perfect Back to School T-shirt with Chalk of the Town

Back to School with Chalk of the Town

We received two Chalk of the Town T-shirts for free to review. Opinions are our own.

Each year when the kids go back to school we print out signs for them to hold that have their grade and other things. This year they can actually make those signs wearable with Chalk of the Town. These are some very cool T-Shirts that kids can use to create their own sayings that they can wear. If they don’t like what they made they can simply erase it and try again. These shirts are special and have a special surface that is like a chalk board. Special chalk markers are used to create the designs.

First I had the kids each take their T-shirts and create their designs. They both made use of the stencils and markers to create. Allison wrote out the words for Andrew and he designed the rest.

Andrew has made his masterpiece

Eva did her entire shirt herself. She made use of the stencil that came in teh kit. The kit contained 3 chalk of the Town markers, a T-Shirt, eraser cloth and a stencil.

While my kids can’t actually wear these shirts on their first day of school (they have uniforms), they can use these shirts on dress down days to express themselves in all sorts of unique ways. We did have fun making T-shirts that, if they were able to wear whatever they wanted, would make for great first day of school T-shirts.

Just too grown up
We cannot believe that Eva is about to start middle school!

Sondra and Wendy, the sister team behind this clever product line, have always been crafty, so when they noticed chalkboard surfaces trending in interior design, a light bulb turned on. “We thought, ‘imagine if we could put a chalkboard on a shirt to let kids create a new shirt every day. We were determined to create a chalkboard-like surface that could accept not only chalk, but bright, fun to use, chalk markers.” As mothers themselves, the product designers made certain the shirts were durable and machine washable. Now, thanks to Chalk Of The Town, kids have the perfect shirt for any occasion. The looks of pride from children as they turn themselves into walking billboards for their own art and messages are precious, just like them! Discover what’s new at
