I need to buy paint for interior walls. Which paint is best especially for young kids. Yes, you've guessed it, ones with grubby hands, those that will write on the walls too. I need paint that I can easily clean off later with a simple cloth.

Dulux have an "easyclean" range

+1 - think this range was previously called "Endurance".

Although Matt finishes are currently fashionable a Silk finish would be easier to clean.

Also consider buying more paint so that you can touch up particularly grubby areas in the future.
#3
could consider blackboard paint and chalks until the little darlings grow out of it.
#4
Any of the tough emulsions. Valspar premium from B&Q tops the list followed by dulux easy care...
#5
Any silk paint will tend to do the job. I wouldn't see the point in paying the extra for the easyclean stuff. +1 to buying more than needed though or if they have tester pots get a couple of them extra.

Acrylic eggshell is what I normally use in a lot of schools , hospital communal areas and other high traffic areas such as corridoors , stairwells etc.
Better finish than vinyl silk , more durable and easy to wipe clean.
#7
+1 for the tester pots for touching up. 1/2 a tin of paint in the garage will soon go off.

Yes to endurance but it can get expensive. We were in the same situation after our two little ones went on a rampage with felt tips last year. Painted with Crown silk paint. I noticed marks and grubbiness will wash off to a certain degree but it some areas it seems to spread and leave dark circles from where you have been scrubbing. We may need to touch it up again this year. I think Dulux endurance would have been better to be honest

Been a big fan of dulux endurance for many years. It does actually work.

Silk looks terrible on flat surfaces. Shows every brush mark and surface imperfection. Dulux easy care is £19 for 2.5lt at homebase so won't break the bank.

Crown trade do an Clean Extreme scrubable matt paint which is great for imperfect walls as silk just shows up everything. It's more expensive per litre but it's got great coverage due to it being a lower water content.

I bought some johnstones bathroom paint for my kids bedroom,is easily wiped and still looks good

it doesn't matter what you buy. Kids are kids. You don't live in a perfect world. Felt tip pens? Grubby hand marks? It's called character! In a couple of years you will repaint the room anyway. Just let them be kids and don't worry about the marks. One day soon you will look back and wish there were marks on your perfect walls...

In their bedrooms that's what I have done. They have 1 wall with blackboard paint, another with white board and with a roll of paper. They can draw and rip it off and start again
