A while back, Lullaby Paints sent me a chalkboard kit to try out!
The kit came with a large pouch of chalkboard paint, chalk, a tray, tape, and a brush. I was really excited to try out the Lullaby Paints because they are free of harmful VOCs, glycols, and other toxic chemicals. I knew it would be good paint for a project with my kiddos, but I had a hard time deciding what to do with it. I finally saw a picture of super cute chalkboard flower pots and realized I found my project!
Making your own chalkboard flower pots is really easy.
Gather supplies – this was easy for me since the kit came with just about everything I needed. I simply added little flower pots and flowers and we were ready to go.
Since my kids were painting the pots, we tried to make the process as mess-free as possible, and used the blue tape to tape around the edge of the flower pot.
The kids got busy painting! I enjoyed watching the concentrated looks on their faces. They can really get into a project and I enjoyed knowing that they weren’t breathing in any harmful chemicals as they painted.
After the kids covered the flower pots with Lullaby Paint, and we took off the tape, I had a bit of cleanup to do to make the pots a tad prettier. I just rolled the brush around the top to add a little more paint and smooth the lines.
I love the end result! Aren’t they cute!? The kids had a great time making these. I think they would also make great little herb pots for the kitchen too. I might be making some more…
Lullaby Paints are widely regarded as the safest paint in the industry and are “recognized by consumer advocacy groups and leading environmental organizations, used by hospitals and maternity facilities, lauded by magazines, designers and bloggers and, most of all, enjoyed by moms as pregnancy safe paints.” Conventional paints often contain chemicals such as Formaldehyde (carcinogen); Benzene (carcinogen); Trimethlybenzene (neurotoxicant); Toluene (neurotoxicant); and Xylene (neurotoxicant) –> Lullaby Paints have none of these!
We try hard to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals at my house and using this paint is another piece of the puzzle. We’re getting ready to build our forever house and making it as safe as possible is a big goal of mine. I’m glad companies are jumping on board to make safer products.
Lullaby’s paints come in a variety of colors, they send out free color chips, and ship their paint directly to your home! You can also get 3 pouches of paint for only $9.95 – perfect for sampling the paint or to try out a fun project with your kiddos. Thank you, Lullaby Paints for sending me your VOC-free Chalkboard Paint to try out! We had a lot of fun making these Chalkboard Flower Pots.
