Art time has become a daily ritual in our house. Both my four-year-old and 19-month-old regularly engage with the products in today’s post to create art! I’ve loved watching them grow in their abilities and creativity since I started incorporating art time! Here is a list of the best non-toxic art supplies for toddlers.
The Best Non-Toxic Art Supplies for Toddlers
I titled this post “for toddlers” because this is what I’m asked about frequently, but in truth, these are items I will have all my children use regardless of their age. This also isn’t a comprehensive list. It’s merely a preview of all of the wonderful art resources out there!
I’ve extensively researched a brand I trust for non-toxic crayons. These Honey Sticks crayons are handmade in New Zealand. They’re extremely durable and made with food pigment. They also have a skinny version for older children.
Finger paint powders made from organic vegetables!
This play dough is a great natural option! It’s natural and safe, made from non-GMO ingredients, and soy based pigments.
My girls have these play dough tools, and they both love them!
I posted these on my IG stories recently and so many of you asked about them! They’re a great, mess-free product for young toddlers! My eighteen-month-old loves them, but so does my 4-year-old!
This smock is great for art time, but also makes a wonderful bib at meal times too!
I am ordering these for my girls for a stocking stuffer! They’ve never tried them, but I have a feeling they’ll love them so much!
This 2 pack of big painting pad is perfect for art projects. Finger painting, water colors, collages.
*Only for older toddlers – these could be a choking hazard!* These colorful pom poms are great for art projects, counting, and scavenger hunts! I also use these for teaching sorting. You can sort by color, or by size! Just remember to watch your little ones with them.
This isn’t an art product, necessarily, but these are a staple in our house! I love that they’re mobile. I kept several in the car when my 4 year old was younger and I needed to feed my newborn. They’re a great no-mess activity.
Thank you so much for reading this post about the best non-toxic art supplies for toddlers!
