Wee Can Too Chalk- Art Supplies for Babies, Toddlers and Children Review and Giveaway

Do you know how many harmful chemicals are in the chalk your children play with?!? Chalk is made from primary calcium carbonate which is a form of limestone. Other main components of chalk are gypsum, silica, phosphorus, iron, alumina, phosphorus, sulphur, manganese, copper, titanium, sodium oxide, fluorine, stronitum and arsenic. Founders of Wee Can Too Sarid Ditton and Nichole Groat saw all these chemicals and realized these were not good for their children to play with! She set out on  mission to create all natural art supplies for her children. Wee can too art supplies are made with fruits and vegetables. They are safe for your children to play with and eat, but they do not taste good trust me! I had to taste them to see what it was like. 🙂

Wee Can Too chalk comes in 5 different colors. Pink, green, yellow, orange and purple. Bunny loves playing with chalk, but I do not love the chemicals found in chalk. I was going to make my own chalk, but almost all of the Do It Yourself chalk recipes called for plaster of paris. Bunny likes to taste chalk, and I did not want her tasting plaster of paris! The only chalk Bunny uses is Wee Can Too’s veggie sidewalk chalk. 




The colors of the veggie sidewalk chalk are bright and fun. There is not a huge variety of color, but hopefully Wee Can Too will be able to expand their color line soon! A child only needs a few colors to be creative! Bunny has played with chalk with two and even three other children and there has always been enough veggie chalk to go around. I really like the peace of mind veggie chalk gives me. I know if/when Bunny decides to put chalk in her mouth, that it is non toxic and will not harm her. I can let her have fun and explore without putting toxic chemicals in her hands. 


 
 
 
 
You can buy Wee Can Too Veggie sidewalk chalk here. Another thing I really like about Wee Can Too veggie chalk is, it comes in eco friendly packaging! YES!

MommyCon San Francisco!!

My Love, Bunny and I were so excited to attend the MommyCon in San Francisco! MommyCon is a convention dedicated to bringing mothers to be and modern parents together, along with brands and ideas that focus on the shared ideals. The focus is on natural parenting methods and timeless tidbits as we journey through parenthood together. 

MommyCon had many vendors and booths, they were very informative and helpful. There were car seat specialists, slings, wraps and soft structured carriers, all there to answer questions and help you find the best product to fit your needs. It was wonderful to see so many babywearing moms! Everywhere I looked there was a happy baby attached to a person! Moms and Dads alike! There were nursing moms everywhere, not using covers and NOBODY cared! There was a nursing room for those who wanted to use it. There were seminars about amber teething necklaces, breastfeeding support, baby wearing, cloth diapering, car seat safety and more! The environment was very warm and friendly. I wish I could attend a MommyCon every weekend! I was happy to see some brands I already knew about, and thrilled to see some new brands and products I had never seen or heard before! I am so excited to try some of the new products! Alanis Morissette spoke at MommyCon but I sadly wasn’t able to hear her. Bunny was tired, too tired to stay.

Adventure Walks with a Toddler

Bunny LOVES to be outside. LOVES it! She would spend all day outside if I let her. Unfortunately she has VERY fair skin and can’t spend all day outside! Every day we go for a walk, what I like to call an adventure walk.
Our adventure walk has no time line and no route. I let Bunny lead the way. We often backtrack a million times. Bunny really enjoys waving at the cars on the street. If she hasn’t seen a car for a while, she will backtrack to the last spot she saw a car.

The texture and size of the tree were captivating. 

I don’t tell Bunny where to go or what to do on our adventure walks. I make sure she doesn’t go into the street or get into anything dangerous or unsafe. Other than that, I let her dictate the walk. I make sure I have at least 30 mins to spend with her on a walk. I try to really see and experience what she is seeing and experiencing. I may see these surroundings multiple times a day, but to Bunny, everything is new. The other day, Bunny spent five or so minutes chasing a leaf that was blowing in the wind. To me, that is a simple experience, but to Bunny it is new and exciting and something to learn about and from.




I love watching her explore the world. I can almost see her brain working, trying to figure out the new things she is experiencing.


I love her little shadow!

Dirt!

Even grass is something to be explored! 


Adventure walks end when Bunny get fussy, hungry, or needs a diaper change. I try not to push my timeline or directions on her. This time is special for her, it is all about her and what she would like to do. I follow Bunny and make sure she is safe and allow her to explore. I find great joy in the little things she shows me. I learn how to be happy and see the world anew when I go on adventure walks with Bunny. If you have a little one, I challenge you to go on an adventure walk! Leave a comment to let me know how it goes! You might be surprised what your little one teaches you!
