Potty training my youngest took less time and effort then expected although the first two months he refused to let me know when he wanted to go and had one accident after another. Then my oldest, who had been potty trained for more than a year, followed his brother’s lead and found it funny to have accidents here and there. I was not happy. One time I punished him and took away the umbrella he was playing with. If only I’d foreseen the consequence of my action… When I got back into the house (the accident had taken place outside) I found my son taking out his anger in a creative way I wished never to experience. He was doodling with a permanent marker on the walls.
If we’d had one of these coloring wallpapers for kids it would not have been an issue, but we didn’t…Frankly, I didn’t even know at the time that such thing existed.
5 Coloring Wallpapers for Kids

Black & White Frames by Graham & Brown
I discovered that my kids prefer plain paper to coloring books. This way their creativity isn’t restricted by lines. I guess this is also the reason why this wallpaper is so beloved. It’s made up only of frames that kids can use however they want, draw whatever they want.
Color me! by Graham & Brown
The creator of this wallpaper used to color on her parent’s walls on a weekly basis, as a kid. Now, she uses her creativity to make a protective shield for the poor walls, while trying not to restrain kids’ imagination and need to color on walls. The inspiration for the wallpaper came from the city of London, where she lives.
Characters by Pop & Lolli
This eco-friendly, non-toxic wallpaper is made from fabric and it can be easily removed and reused. This is perfect! One of the thing that would hold be back from using wallpaper on my walls would be the difficult job of taking it down but this is not the case with Pop & Lolli’s wallpaper and others wallpapers on this list.
Funny Monsters by To Be Child
This is a wallpaper filled with funny little monsters that are looking forward to be colored by busy little hands. I like that the designer offers several suggestions how the wallpaper can be used, besides on walls: tablecloth, covers for books, etc.
Thousand Animals by Chispum Wall Art
A creative way to teach the animals to kids. Then let their imagination go wild and use any color they want to make the animals come to life. My toddler would use mainly blue and my preschooler, yellow- their favorite colors for now.
Would you use coloring wallpapers for your kids’ bedroom or playroom? If you don’t feel like committing to four walls covered in colorful scribbles, you can always choose a giant coloring poster instead.
Magic by Omy
I absolutely love Omy’s giant posters and maps. Read more about them here.
