Having a very neurodiverse family means a ton a therapies. Having two of our child with autism diagnosis, means adjusting life around so that we all can be successful. Though every form of therapy and counseling is important, our favorite by far is art therapy. So when I found out there was a new product on the market to bring that therapy home, I was game to check it out! I am so proud to introduce to you guys Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy
Art Therapy for Autism
The story of Chalk Wild is impressive to say the least. A young man who had an idea, worked with his father to bring it to life, and gives back to the organization that has taught him these skills. The story doesn’t end there, though! So how did it turn into Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy for Autism?
Originally, Chalk Wild was created for creative children. Along the way, Hein and his father began receiving feed back from special needs parents. These parents told them that their children just loved it and even asked for some special features. About this time, Hein’s father reached out to me to test the product.
From all the feedback they were receiving (mine included), they realized their product had a greater purpose. That is when they realized that this would work amazing as art therapy for autism, adhd, and anxiety. That is when Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy for Autism was truly born!
How does Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy work?
The wearable art therapy bag consist of a clear cover on a high quality bag. There are several models to choose from. All of them have this cover and come with eight different colored chalk markers.
Your child draws what ever design they want on their bag. It dries super quick and then they are off to school. It wipes off very easily with a paper towel and water. That way, they can create a new design whenever they want or need too.
Where can I get one for my child?

The Back Story of Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy
I have always been a supporter of small businesses and solo entrepreneurs. More than that, I am huge supporter of child entrepreneurs. When our children use their creativity and experience to create a product, I will get behind it every time. Chalk Wild Wearable Art Therapy is one of products that has blown me away. Here is Hein’s story:
Hien Ho was a 11-year old boy when he invented an erasable bookbag with his father. The idea came from watching kids skateboarding at a local skate park. Hien noticed many kids wearing canvas backpacks with really beautiful & intricate design on each backpack. They were done with permanent marker. Obviously, the designs were permanent. That’s when he got the idea of creating an erasable book bag so that kids can change the cool design as often as they want without having to buy new backpacks. After many months of experimentation, Hien & his father created an erasable book bag which they called: “Erasable Book Bag”.
As a member of Boys & Girls Club of Stanislaus where kids like him learn skills to be amazing and where great futures start, Hien also wants to invest 5% of sale back into BGC of Stanislaus.
