The Bite
Pablo-bly not, but you can still encourage your budding artiste to make masterpieces with nontoxic supplies like veggie-based paint...for art that screams like Munch but smells like Monet's garden.

The Benefits
  • Less suffering for art. Many standard art supplies emit asthma-inducing chems; pick ones that don't contain ammonia, formaldehyde, or turpentine, especially since supplies can end up in kids' mouths.
  • Painting a greener planet. Up to36 billion pounds of toxic acrylic polymer solvents, found in many traditional art supplies, are produced each year.
  • Inspiring mini-Mirós. Whether or not your kid's a natural, natural art supplies will get their creative juices flowing.
Personally Speaking
It's too early to tell whether Heather's nephew Quinn will be the next Paul Klee, but she picked up a box of the Nuno veggie-based paint for him just in case.

Wanna Try?
