  • A dash of creativity and imagination (readily available in each child. They just need encouragement)

Simon is a mundane looking backpack, but using it can help your kids improve creativity & self-esteem.


My 4 year old Son had a very specific idea that he wanted a backpack he could draw on every day. We were absolutely delighted when we found a like minded vision in ChalkWild. This unique and functional canvas is the perfect transitional object. Most importantly it’s an outlet for expression that can give voice to the inner world of emotions and help nurture and develop the creative problem solvers of the future.”

  • A research by William & Mary college showed a continuous decline in creativity among American school children over the last 2 decades.
  • In a poll conducted by IBM, 1500 CEOs of various industries and countries acknowledged that creativity is the best predictor of future success.
  • That’s why we need to reverse this trend of declining creativity among school children. “Creativity is as important as literacy,” Sir Ken Robinson.
  • To add insult to injury, art programs at schools are always the first on the chopping block in any budget cut and a budget cut is all but guaranteed after this pandemic.
  • This unique ChalkWild erasable backpack, invented by this kid, Hien when he was 11 years old, can help reverse this dire trend.
  • As you know, art boosts creativity, self-esteem, self-confidence, working memory, problem-solving skills, and relieve stress and anxiety. 
  • Therefore, you might consider getting your children or grandchildren involved in the arts. Some kids like dancing. Some like music. But most kids love to draw.
  • ORDER one to see for yourself. Have your kids try it. Use it at school, at a bus stop, at a doctor’s office, during a car or bus ride, hanging out with friends, visiting grandparents… We are sure they and you will love it. If they don’t, return it within 30 days and we will issue a full refund. Besides its uniqueness, it is also well made. I and my team make sure of it; so we also offer a 1-year warranty. Let us know if there is a defect and we send you a new one FREE. You can also ORDER more liquid chalk markers here to keep their creativity uninterrupted.

Sharing is caring.

Young children who are starting life with trauma caused by poverty, abuse, neglect, domestic violence… are at a  huge disadvantage . They need help in order to catch up with other kids, to realize their full potential and to avoid being victims of sexual exploitation when they are in their teens. There are many nonprofits dedicated to help these children. Sierra Vista Child & Family Services is one such organization and is one of the largest nonprofit agency in Stanislaus County. The leadership of Sierra Vista recognize the benefits of ChalkWild writable & erasable backpacks for their students. With the financial support of various community members, young children at Sierra Vista now get to draw on their backpacks to express themselves. What Sierra Vista Child & Family Services posted on their LinkedIn page: “ChalkWild Backpacks allow children to express their feelings when their words aren’t enough. Our staff will be able to use the backpacks as a tool to communicate with children as a form of art therapy. They can use them even when participating in distance learning, adding some normalcy to their school experience.”
Boys & Girls Club of Greater Sacramento
The visionary leadership understands the importance of creativity, self-esteem, and other characteristics which can be improved through doing art; so they funded a purchase of 100 ChalkWild backpack + liquid markers for club kids.
