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!
01. Non-Toxic Crayons
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.
02. Non-Toxic Finger Paints
Finger paint powders made from organic vegetables!
03. Eco-Dough Natural Play Dough
This play dough is a great natural option! It’s natural and safe, made from non-GMO ingredients, and soy based pigments.
04. Play Dough Tools
My girls have these play dough tools, and they both love them!
05. Dot-to-Dot Art Markers
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!
06. Toddler Art Smock
This smock is great for art time, but also makes a wonderful bib at meal times too!
07. Honeysticks Beeswax Bath Tub Crayons
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!
08. Melissa & Doug Finger Paint Pad
This 2 pack of big painting pad is perfect for art projects. Finger painting, water colors, collages.
09. Craft Pom Poms
*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.
10. Melissa & Doug Water Wow Pads
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.
