While spending the day on the river, I brought along these very cool eco friendly crayons I purchased on Etsy.
Earth Grown Crayons are hand-made from soy wax. Crayons are 100% biodegradable and eco friendly and safe for young artists. Soy is pesticide and herbicide free, and contains no genetically modified material. Tinted with nontoxic pigments, each set is shaped in a design that celebrates one of earth’s treasures. I selected the fish set for my little girls.
While on our day long boating adventure, we decided to picnic on one of the Intracoastal islands. After lunch, I brought out the crayons to surprise the girls. When they asked for paper I told them we were going to draw on nature today. We ventured off into the woods to find some nice pieces of palm bark and wood branches to color.
While my husband fished and I read a field guide on identifying mushrooms, the girls colored on nature for hours!!!
When it was time to go home, we left the colored wood collection for the fairies. The little ones believe they would come dance around them at dark. :)
It was nice to know the cute crayons were both safe for the girls and the environment.
