If you have lost interest in Draw Something or are fed up with the kids scribbling on the walls (darn kids), perhaps it’s time to look at a more creative way to release your inner artist. And you can’t get more creative than a T-shirt that doubles as a miniature chalkboard. Wait, what?
The concept behind The Chalkboard Tee is simple: It's a T-shirt with a chalkboard-like coating on the front that you can actually draw on. The idea for the T-shirt came about when Chris, a handyman, tried to find out if chalkboard paint would work on clothing—which it does. It was his partner in T-shirt-making crime, Jinyen, who thought of selling them.
Each T-shirt has a different chalkboard design that you can draw on using plain old chalk. All come with a little pocket for storing chalk too, so you can even color when you’re waiting at the bus stop. To start again, just wipe it clean or wash the shirt.
The tees come in both child and adult sizes, and they're available on the Chalkboard Tee website for $32. If you’re not totally convinced be the magic of chalkboard paint, the team has a Pinterest gallery up for you to browse. Now, someone hand me some chalk so I can color in a dinosaur one, please.
