I’ve had great success in keeping my toddler from writing on the walls with this wall art idea. I found these giant coloring pages at Target for $5.99 and decided to pick a wall in my house to tape the pages on. I tried to explain to my toddler that this was her space and she could draw all she wanted but only on the paper.
Learning to listen
At first I had to remind her a few times that the crayons were only for the paper but when we started leaving crayons lying around, she didn’t even try to color on any other wall. I think that perhaps she liked the fact that she finally had her own space to do whatever she wanted.
When the pages got full of stickers or marks, we would take it down and we would tape new ones.
