When the kids ask to fingerpaint, I conjure up visions
of them covered in gelatinous, who-knows-what goo which doesn’t make me
too eager to indulge them in their favorite medium. But, when they come
calling with puppy-dog eyes and promises to clean up after themselves,
I at least can feel better about the paints they use when I pull out
Eco-Kids’ Eco-Fingerpaint Tube.
Using only natural plant, fruit and vegetable-based ingredients, the
paints arrive in powder form in five tightly sealed containers which, like
the company’s cool Eco-Dough, are
I like that the powder format allows me to mix up only as much paint as my nerves can bear to
later see smeared all over the place. (If you value your sanity, do the
mixing of the paints yourself.)
The paints don’t have the same gooey feel of the fingerpaints we’ve used before, and the blue is a bit gray, but I suppose these are small
sacrifices for all-natural paints. Because when your wee one forgets
himself and sticks his paint-covered hands into his eyes, or more likely,
mouth, you’ll be thankful you chose to go all-natural. -Christina
