Toy of the month – Eco-finger paint

With eco-finger paint children learn about how to represent their ideas and how to use their imagination and creativity. Whilst having fun and developing their skills, they play with the handmade eco-finger paint which contains natural ingredients.

The eco-finger paint is made from natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts from annatto seed, beets, carrots, curcuma, purple sweet potato, red cabbage and spinach, flour, cornflour, wheat paste, and earth clay. In addition, the eco-finger paint is packaged in recycled materials, which are printed with soy ink and the help of wind power.

Finger painting appeals to children of all ages. It is fun, creative and helps to develop physical and social skills. Younger children can explore texture and mark making skills whilst the older kids use imagination to create a more delicate picture.
Painting with eco-finger paints encourages the development of fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Besides, many children enjoy communicating through art work and they express feeling and represent ideas in a visual way. Art work can also be a useful starting point for a conversation with a child.
