Have you ever wondered what your kidsâ€™ art supplies are made of? One of my daughterâ€™s favorite pastimes is painting, and there were a few occasions this summer where she wound up with paint in rather precarious places. Like her eyelashes. And I stood there and wondered just what, exactly, is in that paint? As previously noted in this post, many finger paints (and regular paints) contain heavy metals, VOCs and petro-chemicals.
From Clementine Art comes a line of all-natural childrenâ€™s art products with nothing to hide. The ingredients, all of them, are listed right there on the package. Now that’s a first! The six creative staplesâ€“washable paints, soy crayons, water-based markers, flour-based modeling dough, soy crayon â€˜rocksâ€™ and washable glueâ€“are made right here in the US of A using natural, non-toxic materials. Kids can dig in and express themselves, and we donâ€™t have to worry about what it is theyâ€™re digging in to.
Cool things to note: the modeling dough is colored with turmeric, spinach and carmine, thereâ€™s a Clementine Art blog, and an informative ingredients glossary on the web site (look for the â€˜nitty grittyâ€™ heading).
