Clementine Art Products 

Summer is a great time to do art activities with your kids. But did you know that paints, glues, crayons and markers contain artificial chemical dyes, petrochemicals and other unknown ingredients, despite their non-toxic label?

Giving Gifts sells Clementine Art products like all natural modeling dough, glue, crayons, paints and markers. All products are non-toxic, environmentally-friendly and free of artificial colors and dyes. Unlike conventional brands, Clementine products have labels that disclose every ingredient.

- Clementine's modeling dough is composed of flour and water and colored with natural foods like turmeric and spinach and scented with natural scents: strawberry, lemon and lime. It is good enough to eat and perfectly safe if your child does.

 - Clementine's paints are colored using earth-based mineral pigments, as are the company's markers and crayons. They contain absolutely no chemical dyes or other artificial additives.

 - Clementine's creamy, crayons and crayon rocks are made from kosher soy wax. Conventional crayons are made from paraffin wax, a petroleum product.  

- Clementine's glue is composed of natural bio-polymers rather than animal adhesives. It will not cause harm if ingested and contains no artificial colors or dyes.

Clementine Art products are great for the environment and great for our children!


Another great environmentally friendly art product for kids are Ecojot Sketchbooks.

Ecojot spiral-bound sketchbooks are made in Canada from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and are 100% recyclable. All board and paper is acid-free and chlorine free and all inks and glues are vegetable based and bio-degradable. No new trees are used to make the paper and the Ecojot paper mill is powered by biogas harnessed from a nearby landfill. All packaging is corn-based. They also try to use as much locally made raw material as possible. How’s that for eco friendly!

In addition, for every sketchbook purchased, Ecojot donates one workbook to a child in need in a developing country. Ecojot is not only working to protect our planet, but also make life a little better for the people on it!

Ecojot also has a line of notebooks. The lines in the notebooks are created using vegetable based inks, of course. They also donate a workbook for every notebook purchased.

Ecojot makes beautiful sketchbooks with bright and fun covers that will inspire every kid (and even their parents) to draw!
