Jessica Loves: Clementine Art Soy Crayons

Once kids reach a certain age, they spend a lot of time (at restaurants, in the playroom, at preschool, on the walls!) creating and scribbling with crayons. I’m always on the lookout for new toys and craft supplies that are truly non-toxic and natural, so I fell in love with the story of Clementine Art.

Cooked up through a series of kitchen experiments by an art teacher in Colorado, the brand goes above and beyond in its quest to create art supplies that are 100% natural and work well—after all, toys are only good if kids play with them, right?

When you first unbox the brand’s soy crayons, you’ll immediately notice that each creamy, color-saturated crayon has a unique shape (almost like little corn on the cobs!) that fits little grips perfectly. And unlike most commercially available competitors, Clementine lists every ingredient right on the box. When you’re made of things like kosher soy wax, mineral pigments, spinach, and beeswax with absolutely no chemical or synthetic additives or dyes, there’s really nothing to hide!

Especially at those early stages, art supplies have a way of making their way into kids’ mouths. So it’s all the more important to find the most natural ingredients. Clementine also makes modeling dough, paint, markers and glue with ingredients like flour, salt, and vinegar — all stuff that’s as at home in your kitchen as it is in your child’s easel.

Clementine Art is sold at Whole Foods. Check out their web site at www.clementineart.com.
