A G Free Question(school Supplies)

Recommended Posts

I've read that Gluten is in some school supplies like finger paint,crayons and glue.

Anyone know the right ones to get and what not to get.

and does wal mart carry anything Gluten-Free as far as school supplies?

Hi :)

Have you downloaded Nini's newbie kit? She knows a lot about this as she has a daughter in school. Here is a link to her site--

I'm sure some of the parents will be on soon to give you specifics--my kids are grown, so I can't be of too much help on this one.

I asked this very question just last week, and was given this address:

Playdough is the big one.

Tori just started K and we got her some gluten-free playdough from Discount School Supplies and sent it to school.

Most crayola products are ok but what we did was go to the school and meet with the art teacher, class teacher etc. and got them to show us all of the supplies they use. We took down product info and phone numbers and called them all up to see if they were gluten-free.

feel free to e-mail me directly at nisla@comcast.net if you have other questions that I might be able to help with. As was mentioned before, my daughter is 6 and in first grade and we've been doing this for 3 years now, so while I may not have all the answers, I may be able to point you in the right direction.

I have some lists of safe school supplies, I can't remember if i put one in the newbie survival kit or not, but if it's not in there you can e-mail me and I'll send you the lists.
