big toddler crayons spilling out of a ziploc bagIf you are a parent then you are or have been the parent of a little artist. If your child only drew with pens, markers, crayons and pencils on paper, then I want your secret. How did you manage that? My children draw on everything they can get their hands, or crayons on, as the case may be.

If you have the same dilemma, and are wondering how to make crayon marks disappear from your walls, then look no further than this awesome article that I found on The author gives 21 ways to remove crayon from walls. Now that is a lot of tips, and I am sure that you will find 1 or even 10 that will work for you.

Some of my favorites from the list are baking soda, regular non gel toothpaste, baby wipes, and Mr. Clean magic eraser. All will effectively remove crayon marks off walls without harsh chemicals or nasty smells. That makes me a very happy mom knowing that I can find crayon marks on my walls and not freak out wondering how I am going to remove them without getting a migraine. If you have ink or marker marks to deal with, then check out Lisa's post on how to remove ink out of (almost) anything.
