(You can now purchase Wee Can Too products at my Kids, Clutter & Chaos store! We love this product so much we now sell it too!)
If you've learned anything from reading my blog is that, 1. I am all about healthy food for my kids, 2. that I want safe, chemical free toys and products for my kids when at all possible. So when I came across Wee Can Too Edible Art Supply I knew I just had to try them! (Plus BONUS they are a fellow Oregonian & Neighbor)! A healthy safe project for my kids, that they can eat too! Who knew!
Now of course this is still paint, chalk, crayons, etc., and not really meant for eating. However if your little ones did decide to eat it - perfectly safe!
About Wee Can Too
Wee Can Too was started by a Mom, Sarid. Who as an artist wanted her own daughter to experience art as well, only not with any nasty chemicals or dyes. So Sarid started in her own kitchen playing with ideas until she finally came up with a product that is completely edible, organic and safe!
After 2 years of manufacturing Wee Can Too on her own, she met and teamed up with Nichole, a client and owner of a Organic Children's online store. And the once small company is very quickly gaining popularity!
Wee Can Too Review
I was super lucky to get to review the Veggie Sidewalk Chalk and the Veggie Tempera Paint.
The Veggie Tempera Paint is recommended for ages 1 year and up as they have ingredients such as Natural Fruit Acid. They are made with organic fruit and vegetable pigments. The paints come as a 4 pack, with colors green, yellow, purple and pink. Each jar is 2 ounces and together they make over 12 ounces of paint. We used just a tiny bit of the powder as you can see in the pictures and it made plenty of paint. We still have tons of powder left more many days more of painting.
Big Brother couldn't wait to try them. He begged me for days to be able to paint. So finally one beautiful morning while Little Brother was napping we set up with the paints outside on the deck. The paints come in powder form. Add a tiny bit of water, more or less depending on the consistency you want, and that's it! The colors are amazingly vibrant and they smell good too. Depending on the color and blend your using you may get a vegetable small or a fruity smell. I have to say I was most impressed with the vibrant colors. The paint went on smooth and nice with a slight sandy texture.
I left my son painting and having so much fun while I worked on my own projects. He eventually came inside and when I went out to clean up the paints, this is what I found... (see photo below)
All colors were mixed and blended and sprayed everywhere! As these are natural paints I wasn't worried. I cleaned up and sprayed off the deck. No stains on the deck, on the clothing, nothing. Awesome! Not only are they safe for your kids, they are safe for your house too!
Veggie Tempera Paint = A+
The Veggie Sidewalk Chalk is just as cool. The consistency reminds me of pumice stone. This chalk is all organic and vegan and has no wheat, sugar, preservatives and no dairy! Also more importantly, NO LEAD! It comes in 5 bright fun colors, green, yellow, orange, pink and purple.
We tested this fun chalk out on our sidewalk. The first couple swipes you have to press pretty hard, but once you get the chalk started it draws very nicely and vibrant. Both Big Brother and Little Brother had fun with these. Again no staining and washes off nicely.
As these chalks are a little more firm then regular chalk, they don't draw as nicely on a regular chalkboard. I did find that once you got them started on the sidewalk you could draw on a chalkboard just fine, it just wasn't a thick dark chalk line like you would expect.
