earth day: eco-friendly gifts for kids

In celebration of Earth Day, there are plenty of earth-friendly gifts to give this month. Here are some of my favorites, from And by the way, Gift Hero includes a complimentary reusable gift bag with every eco-friendly product you order this month. So start shopping!

Eco Stars
Eco Stars by Miss Brittany ($10) are made with crayons collected from the National Crayon Recycle Program. Each box contains 20 star-shaped, solid colored crayons made from 100% recycled crayons--a nice change from the standard stick types. Eco Stars are made in the USA and are nontoxic and the packaging is made from 100% recycled materials as well.

Organic Earth Dough
This limited edition of Miss Brittany's Organic Earth Dough honors the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day on April 22nd, 2010. The pack contains two 7 oz. containers of blue and green organic fun dough swirled together to look like the planet Earth. (My kids tried to make their own with regular play dough but it just didn't seem to work out as well!)Organic Fun Dough is handmade in the USA from the most high quality organic and all natural ingredients available.

Magic School Bus Kit
The newest Magic School Bus Kit ($20) from the Young Scientist's Club! Ms. Frizzzle and her students take young scientists on a wild ride by going green with experiments and activities that can Save our Earth! Kids can recreate the water cycle, build a compost tube, shrink plastic, magically make packing peanuts disappear, decompose food with fungus, form pulp, create new paper, design recycled paper shapes, learn about the 3 R's and much more. Let them be their own Sid the Science Kids!
