Coloring is such an excellent developmental activity for children as it benefits creativity, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and much more. It is important to choose crayons for your little one that are made of natural, non-toxic materials as conventional crayons are often made with chemical additives and dyes. Below is a list of the top options available for eco-friendly and non-toxic crayons for kids.
Eco-Crayons are made with a natural wax blend and natural earth pigments (bees way, soy wax, and carnauba wax). Perfect for little ones as they are easy to grab and hold, hard to break, and never need to be sharpened! They are shaped using molds made with actual rocks picked up by children along the Maine coast. Their unique shape makes it fun to color with a fine point to shading! Each unit includes 8 colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown and black.
We Can Too Organic Veggie Crayons are made from natural and organic ingredients, so they are hand to mouth safe!
