I have twin 4 year olds and like all kids, they love to paint, color and create with clay. After “The Instigator” (twin B) ate a big handful of Play Doh it occurred to me that maybe I needed to find some truly nontoxic, natural art supplies.
We’ve been using Glob Natural Paint which I really love. It’s made of fruit and veggie pigments and the colors are just wonderful.
Ingredients: gum arabic, corn starch, natural colors (one or more of the following: fruit, vegetable, flower, and spice pigments), organic extracts and potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate as preservatives.
$16 for a set with colors and brushes
Clementine Art’s Natural Art Set includes crayon rocks. paint, clay, and all natural glue. The colors are bright and lovely and everything smells so nice. Crayon rocks are actually much easier for little ones to hold and use.
Arterro makes amazing Art Kits with handmade paper and natural wool felt. The kit includes all the supplies you need to make greeting cards, bookmarks, ornaments, gift tags, small sculptures and collages and contains enough materials for 7 projects.
Eco Kids Eco-Dough is a handmade of natural and nontoxic ingredients including fruit, plant and vegetable extracts. This stuff is amazing. The ingredients sounds like you looking in your refrigerator – spinach, beets, carrots, purple sweet potato, blueberries, red cabbage, tomatoes, and paprika.
Ingredients: flour, salt, cream of tartar , rosemary oil, vitamin E oil, water, fruit, plant and vegetable extracts.
I love International Arrival’s Beeswax Crayons. The colors are vibrant and they glide across paper.
My kids love sidewalk chalk. Since it ends up all over them and gets washed down into drains and the local water supply, I wanted to find a natural, nontoxic version.
Wee Can Too makes an edible sidewalk chalk. I’m hoping they don’t eat it but if they did, it’s no problem. It has no lead, is made with organic ingredients, is vegan and has no wheat, sugar, preservatives, or dairy.
Ingredients: baking ingredients and organic Fruit & Veggie Powders.
Store it all in a Magic Cabin wood caddy.
