    So I need some advice: How do I get crayon off my walls?

    I guess I'm going to have to put the crayons away in between supervised coloring time because DS went on a frenzy this morning while I was loading the dish washer.

    Thanks for your input!

    I've heard that Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser works...but I've always just used water and a wash rag and some elbow grease! If the walls are white, use a white wash rag. If they're a dark-colored wall, use a dark-colored wash rag.

    Good luck!

    I tried scrubbing with a little dawn dish soap and it's not coming off that well, the walls are textured so it sticks down in the groove parts. I am going to pick up one of those magic erasers when I drop of DS at daycare. I hope it comes off!

    Yes thank you, I got one and it worked wonderfully!

    Now my bedroom wall and door don't look like they were taken from the set of Elmo's World!
