Are you looking for small gifts that you know your child will use? Try eco-art supplies made from botanical ingredients.
Every year I struggle to convince my in-laws not to give my children tiny, throwaway plastic toys in stockings or advent calendars. It’s a losing game. I can request that they not give the children toys that will be thrown away after the children are bored with them, which is immediately, but that hasn’t worked yet. Instead, I am very careful to keep my own small gifts useful, exciting, and fun. These art supplies are stocking stuffers or advent gifts you can feel good about.
We are constantly on the lookout for more natural toys that encourage open-ended, creative play. We’re really happy with our new art supplies from Glob and eco-kids.
Glob botanically crafted paint powders are made from fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices with all natural ingredients and organic extracts. Just add water—more water for a thin paint like watercolours and less water for thicker paint like tempera or finger paints. These paints smell delicious. Set of 4 colors in jars or a sample packet of red (that’s pomegranate!). Made in California, USA.
eco-kids is a family business making art supplies with natural ingredients like earth clay, cornstarch, flour, spinach, red cabbage, purple sweet potato, carrots, blue gardenia, red grapeseed, and annatto seed. You know these supplies are safe for your child, and they are also such a pleasure to work with. The gentle aromas awaken the senses. Try bags of paint powder, jars of dough, or rock-shaped crayons, all in beautifully vibrant colors. Made in USA.
