Eco-Kids Dough and Fingerpaint!
We are all dreading the end to the Thanksgiving holiday, and return to the grind. To add to it, it is now time to get going and buy those presents for everyone on your list. Product Mommy is here to tell you about two wonderful products that should be on the holiday want list of every child. Eco-Kids was started by a family of three who lives in Mt. Washington, CA. They heard about all of the toy recalls, and took matters into their own hands to make safe toys for children. The Eco-Kids line includes Eco-Dough, Eco-Fingerpaint and Eco-Puzzles. The Eco-Dough all natural . It is made with plant, fruit and veggie extracts, and contains No chemicals, artificial dyes or metals. The containers are made from cornstarch and are 100% compostable. Unlike conventional dough, if it dries out, add a few drops of olive oil and voila!, playtime is back. My child loves this Eco-Dough. It has a nice fresh scent that by far wins our vote for best-smelling (even compared to other eco-friendly doughs). And it really is the best and can be played with over and over again. If the Eco-Dough goes beyond a state where you can revive it, simply compost it (and the packaging too). The big bonus for me, it actually comes out of carpet unlike Play Dough, because it is all-natural.
Our other fav from the line is the Eco-Fingerpaint. The Eco-Fingerpaint is made with all natural ingredients and easy to make. Each comes in a powder form, so you can make as much or as little as you like (and you can use the containers it comes in if you want). This is great because fingerpaint often dries out, so I like that we control how much to make for each project. My daughter loves feeling like she is "cooking" as she mixes up her paint, and it adds to the fun. I am getting some for all of the kids on my holiday lists.
Eco-Kids make safe, affordable, and wonderful products!
