Stubby Pencil Studio- Eco Friendly & Creative Easter Gifts For Kids! Review And Giveaway!

Easter is April 20 of this year! Earth Day is also in April! What is better than Eco friendly and creative Easter gifts for kids? Stubby Pencil Studio was launched in 2006 by Kate Rosenthal, after she realized there was a need for eco-friendly, do-it-yourself stationery products for young children. Stubby Pencil Studio offers a wide selection of art supplies and craft materials. Their are chosen because they are healthy for children and the environment. Their crayons are made from soy and beeswax (not petroleum), their sketchbooks are made from 100% recycled paper (not virgin trees), and their pencils are made from sustainably harvested wood and recycled newspapers (not vibrant forests). If you are looking for green and Eco-Friendly Easter products to stash in your kids Easter Baskets this year, Stubby Pencil Studio has them at affordable prices.
Recently, I was able to receive a Easter Basket of goodies to feature here on The Small Things! When I received it, I was pretty excited because it has a little bit of everything for my oldest, Lydia.
You are probably wondering what kind of goodies are in this basket, Check it all out below! The first item is the Beeswax Crayons Sample Pack! It retails for $5 on their website!
They are smooth, creamy and petroleum free. Made of all natural and renewable waxes and pure beeswax and pigments from a combination of plants and vegetables. The next item is the Spring Smencil Pencils

 Each Smencil is stored in its own freshness tube, made from biodegradable corn plastic, and includes an adorable character topper. A set of 5 can be purchased for $10 and one, $2. I received Bubble Gum scented and it smells like the real thing for sure! Another item in the basket is this Sharpener & Eraser Duo! Completely adorable for sure!
