    I'm trying to decide on expo markers for my kiddos to use with their whiteboards.

    I like the fine tip markers because they're more "managagle", but do they not last as long as the chisel/bullet tips?

    Does anyone know?

    I'm not sure about lasting as long, but I know that I personally like the regular "fatter" tip markers better. Reason being is because I get my kids to raise their boards and show me their work and I can see the work a lot better with the regular dry erase markers than the fine point kind.

    I agree. I always use the fat ones. They last a pretty long time for most kids.

    Explain to them that they do not have to mash them down. I have had a few push the felt tip into the cartridge.
