If those are words you love to hear when it comes to art and craft supplies for your kids then take a look at Eco Crayons range of crayons and paint.
Eco Crayons are an Adelaide based business run by owner Naomi and we were recently gifted a beautiful little box of her products to try. Both of my girls are very much into their drawing and painting so they were very excited to open the gorgeous packaging to find a packet of 6 stick crayons and a wonderful powder paint kit with 8 colours ready to mix.
The Eco Crayon range are 100% plant based making them non-toxic, vegan and biodegradable. They’re handmade from all natural ingredients, waxes and butters, and colour pigments derived from plants, roots, seeds and flowers. The colours are really earthy and natural and it really makes a nice difference from the standard primary colour paints we’re used to. They’re also really sturdy. My 3 year old is a serial crayon breaker and try as she might, these crayon sticks stayed in one piece!
The standout for us though was the powered paint. I have to admit I have never seen or bought this kind of paint for my kids before but what a GREAT idea!! You just mix up the amount you need and away you go. No more waste and so great to experiment with!
Need more blue?……Just mix a bit more.
Want to make your purple a bit darker?…… Just add some black.
Want a thicker paint ?……Add less water.
Want watercolours…..Use more water.
The kids had a great time experimenting with the colours. Mixing two together, adding more or less water, painting with different brushes and sponges. And we went through only a tiny amount of powder, it will last us a long time.
