Kids love being creative, covering their skin and tasting art materials. However, some of these products contain harmful toxins that can be absorbed through the skin, breathed in and ingested. Luckily there are heaps of quality non-toxic brands that can be found in Australia. Most of these products are made in Australian, America and Germany and comply with strict safety standards. They can be found in department stores and children’s boutiques, but some may have to be purchased online.
The following art materials and crafts that I have recommended include crayons, pencils, markers, paints, face paint, chalk, play dough, modelling clay and glue and craft activities. I have also recommended some DIY recipes and information on the brands and products (bottom).
