Inundated with birthday party invites this summer? Finding great gifts for kids that don’t involve screen time, batteries, or BPA-laden plastic can be a challenge. Not anymore!
Here are 7 great ideas that any child would be thrilled to open.
Mermaid Cove: They’ll spend hours decorating, building, and playing with these adorable mermaids. Sturdier than the paper dolls we remember, this set is made from recycled cardboard. Folds for easy storage and comes with non-toxic markers. Someday when they outgrow the set, recycle it! (on sale, $9.95)
Organic Cotton Blanket: Kids of all ages love cozying up with their own snuggly blanket. Handmade with USA organic cotton and machine washable. In a rush? Choose one that’s already made. Organized with time to spare? Customize with the birthday child’s favorite colors. ($50.00)
Let’s Go Green Activity Books: Great for kids who are on the go. Filled with puzzles, games, coloring, and mazes these books with keep little minds active whether they’re on the plane, in the car, or watching older siblings activities. ($3.00)
Mini-Me Bag: The little athlete in your life will love this bag. Made from recycled hockey gear, it’s perfect for carrying sports tape, school supplies, or even small toys. ($19.95)
SpaRitual Mini-Polish: What little girl (and big girl for that matter!) doesn’t love glamming it up with nail polish?! Protect their little nails with SpaRitual’s vegan polish: no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde so it’s a much safer alternative. ($5.00)
Glob Botanical Paint Kit: “Earth without art is just eh.” Encourage those budding artists with botanical paint pigments made from fruits, vegetables, spices, and organic extracts. Kit includes 6 color packets, 6 compostable jars with lids, and 2 bamboo brushes with an aluminum ferrule and cruelty-free bristles, all packaged in a rice paper pouch. ($17.95)
Eco Gear Messenger Bags & Backpacks: I love these EcoGear bags! They’re great for young ones to carry their own toys and books, as they get older it becomes a great purse or day pack. Available in three colors. ($18.00)
