Leaf rubbings are favorite fall craft in our house! All you need to do is collect some leaves, grab some crayons and paper and you’re off. We made grandma a card with a beautiful cover. We’ve got perfectly-sized beeswax or soy crayons for small hands too!
Also talking about crayons, did you know crayons rock for brain development? Crayons provide the brain with more feedback (pressure needed to make a mark, vibrations from the crayons up the arm to the brain, etc). Plus small crayons force the young children to grip the crayon on the right area with the right general part of the hand. Our soy crayons and beeswax crayon blocks are a GREAT option for developing fine motor skills. Also don’t toss those broken crayons – you can use them for improving the little one’s grip – or for making your own new fun-shaped crayons!
We searched far and wide for Natural, Organic, Non-Toxic AND made-in-the-USA Face Paints! We received our shipment today and I greedily opened the box to try them out. We always try before you buy; we want to make sure that we can give it our seal of approval! You can see my product tester (aka, my son – the “dragon”) is the funky one with the blue lips. I loved the face paints. The face paints went on super smoothly; plus I like to blend colors, and that was very easy with this kit. At the end of the day he wiped it completely off with a wet cloth – and it actually came off. We loved using these face paints, and we don’t fear the ingredients.
These awesome natural face paints are non-toxic, vegan, made-in-USA, and made largely from Certified Organic ingredients. Take the worry out of transforming your kids into tigers, pirates, fairies, princesses, bunnies, witches and more. When playtime is over, simply wash with soap and water. The face paints are clay and mineral-based and contain healthy skin conditioners such as organic, fair-trade shea butter and organic castor seed oil.
