Most military bases and ships do several special events through the year---events for families on your base, events for the local community, deployment events, return events, Month of the Military Child events, air shows, tiger cruises, etc. Our murals might make sense for any one of them, or perhaps with one of our Wipeable Murals, you could have a mural at all of them.
Rigid Wipeable Plastic
Consider our Rigid Wipeable if you'd like to mount the mural in one spot in a family/recreation center, for general use, or for day care activities.
Rollable Wipeable Plastic
Consider the Rollable Wipeable if you'd like to pull the mural out for special events several times a year (it's much easier to move around than the Rigid Plastic). We have a mural stand that we rent or sell to make your Rollable Wipeable a free-standing activity.
Single Use Paper
The Single Use Paper is our most economical Wall Size Mural. Use it for a big community festival, or use it as an extended coloring activity through a whole summer, maybe putting it up in a rec center, and perhaps even sectioning it off to do a little bit each week. We've had military clients color one mural throughout april for Month of the Military Child. (Note that the Single Use Paper needs a wall to put it on---see Single Use Tarp if you need something free-standing.)
Single Use Tarp
The Single Use Tarp is best when you need the mural to be a free-standing activity, or when you need the mural in one piece with grommets to move it easily after the event. These make sense for your bigger community festivals.
Table-Size Coloring Sheets
Our Table-Size Coloring Sheets are smaller, much more economical, and much easier to manage—they just don't have the visual impact of the bigger Wall-Size Murals. They work well at just about any of your events or programs. Sheets are about the size of 8' rental tables, and work well with crayons. Keep a bunch in the closet to pull out whenever you need them. They take quite a lot of participation to finish, and note that you can also flip them over to have 15 square feet of free coloring space.
Thoughts on How to Use Them
For Community Special Events
If you put on big special events, either for base families, or for the local community, consider adding a mural. It's big and colorful, can accommodate hundreds of participants through the day, and brings a nice warm-and-fuzzy feeling to your event site.
For Deployment Events and Return Events
Consider our mural for deployment or return events. Besides our regular style designs, also take a look at our Signature-Message style murals, which gives attendees a place to write a note or sentiment. Display the final mural on base, or ship to bases/deployments overseas.
For Tiger Cruises
Consider a mural when you bring families and kids onto your ship for a day, or for a short trip.
We have many designs specifically featuring the military, and several featuring uniforms and equipment from specific branches. Remember that we can swap characters, buildings, planes, helicopters, etc. between designs. So if you like a design except your base has F-35's instead of F-16's, we can swap in our F-35's.
Family Centers or Day Care Facilities
One of our big Wall-Size murals would be a great long-term activity for a family center or summer camps. You could use one of our big Single-Use Murals over the entire summer--perhaps designating sections of the mural for each week. Or consider a smaller Wipeable mural that you could wipe off and restart every few days.
We also have our Table Size Coloring Sheets, our most popular product for this situation. These are smaller---about the size of 8' Rental Tables, much more economical, and easy to just put out on a table at a moments notice.
Month of the Military Child
A mural is a perfect addition to your Month of the Military Child activities and events. We have several designs ready to go, and we could swap characters to make the design match the activities and equipment on your base. Think about our Single Use options to work on the entire month, or our Wipeable options, where you could wipe off and reuse the mural over the month, and use it for four or five years or more.
