Crayons made from veggie-based ingredients – now that’s a smart idea. Once your kids get into paints, crayons and other artistic activities, the bright colours may have you wondering what on earth is in the products. But not anymore, thanks to US company Wee Can Too, which sells an entire range of all-natural art products for kids.
Among other non-nasty things, the crayons are made from vegetable powders, organic fruit and food grade soy wax, so they are hand and mouth safe and free of toxins, wheat, sugar and preservatives. They’re not meant for eating, obviously, but it’s nice to know they’re safe for that inevitable moment when your toddler will go in for a taste!
The crayons come in five colours: green, yellow, orange, red/pink and purple. And as you can see, they are as vibrant in colour as all the not-so-safe crayons on the market, so you’re not missing out by going ‘green’, as they say.
Wee Can Too was created in 2007 with a mission to bring high-quality art supplies to babies, all made from plant-based, fruit and vegetable-based ingredients. It has grown from its first batch of Veggie Finger Paint to offer an entire range or natural art supplies, including chalk, various paints and the fantastic crayons, among other things.
The crayons are available locally from craft4kids for a discounted (at the moment) rate of $14.90 (usually $19.95). Make sure you also check out the Wee Can Too website. It has some really cool all-natural products that are worth a browse.
