Holiday Gift Guide: Clementine Art Review and Giveaway - US ONLY

I love any and all products geared towards kids doing something. I feel like it is so important for them to have crafts and projects to keep them busy and out of trouble! I've spent many days wondering just exactly what is in traditional paint and art supplies, and I think it's best I not know. We will always have those family members who buy art kits that are not green, and that is OK. Not everything in life can be eco-friendly all of the time. The point is to try. With companies like Clementine Art, we can offer our children non-toxic and eco-friendly art options. I can appreciate their creative drawings even more now!

Clementine is art that all parents can feel good about. Their high-quality art supplies are all natural, certified non-toxic and environmentally friendly! All Clementine packaging is made from 80% post consumer recycled and reusable materials. I swear this company is after my own crunchy heart.

Created by a teacher in Boulder, CO who wanted to make sure kids used safe art products in the studio she taught at, Clementine Art holds nothing back!

Wanna know what the ingredients are in the products they offer? Not a problem!

Want to know about the allergen information? Also not a problem! They disclose everything and don't keep one thing a secret.

You can also find an extensive list of retailers. I had no idea that Clementine Art products were sold in so many stores I frequent! I was really shocked to find out it has been under my nose this whole time.



For review, I was sent their Natural Paint and it has not disappointed us one bit! It comes in a set of six really creamy and vibrant colors. I was surprised at how colorful they are when they are only colored with natural Mayan mineral earth pigments. They are completely free of chemical dyes and petrochemicals. Each pot of paint is 1.7 ounces and has lasted us a long time. The best part? This set is only $13.99! Sure you can buy cheap paint for much less, but why settle? I always thought it important to provide children with high quality art supplies so they can really get creative! Now I don't have to sacrifice safety and I get a high quality, long-lasting product!

My 4 year old son has been addicted to Pokemon lately and it seems every time we draw or paint he wants to attempt to draw the characters. I think it's adorable, but you might not know what the heck is going on in this picture he painted! Check it out:





Other products offered by Clementine Art include Natural Modeling Dough, Natural Markers, Natural Crayons, Natural Crayon Rocks, Natural Glue and a whole Natural Gift Set!

Purchase any of the items mentioned at the Clementine website or at any of their retailers!

  19. I would love to try their paints as well as their markers. My 4yr old (and 19mo old) loves to color with markers and I think he would get a kick out of the makers. The paints would be hard for him, he has Sensory Processing Disorder and sometimes things like paint freak him out and he wont touch it but my 19mo loves to paint (pudding mostly right now lol)
