Finger paints are often the first experience a child has applying color to paper, before the development of manual dexterity which enables a child to hold a paintbrush.
Our food-safe, non-GMO ingredients ( including potatoes, rice, and beans) provide an all-natural, fun-filled, and colorful adventure for the very youngest artist.
4 colors, blueberry blue, cabbage green, watermelon red, and orange...well orange!
Ages 3 and up.
Mix the powdered finger paint base with an equal amount of water to create a silky smooth liquid paint. Mix only what is needed for a single-use, though excess unused liquid paint can be safely stored covered in the refrigerator for a day or two. Made with organic fruit and vegetable extracts.

Eco-Kids creates safe and effective children’s art materials that support the freedom of exploration, the joy of discovery, and the development of non-verbal, visual language.
Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your children will not be exposed to hazardous chemicals like phthalates, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or artificial pigments found in mass-produced art supplies. Instead, many of our ingredients are edible, including thickeners made of rice and potato starch; pigments made of powdered fruit, vegetables and minerals, and binders made of (milk) gum Arabic and powdered eggs.
By offering many of products in powdered form, we eliminate dependence on preservatives and the unnecessary expense of shipping water. Adding water at the point the product is used also allows us to package in paper and cardboard instead of plastic jars and bottles. We carefully evaluate the recycled content of our packaging in a committed effort to reduce the environmental footprint of our company.
