Preschool Art Supplies


Recommended Posts

My daughter started preschool this week. I've already purchased gluten-free playdough for her classroom. Are there other art/craft supplies that may contain gluten? What about finger paint and glue? I've already reviewed the potential danger of doing crafts with pasta, cereal, etc. The preschool has been very accomodating to my child's needs so far.

I have a list of elmers gluten free products and it says everything is gluten free except finger paints for them.

For crayola it is everything except the dough

It would be a good idea to check the hand soap and toothpaste they use if they have the children brushing after meals (we have this at our school).

Our teacher has given me a list of the birthdays in the classroom. Since parents typically send in cupcakes or such on their child's birthday, I know ahead of time which day I send in a gluten-free item for my girls.

If they have parties etc. for the class, I send in gluten-free treats on a colored platter tray. My girls they know that they can have the items on that try and it helps the tray stand out more so it's a good reminder for the teachers. For Halloween, Easter, and the other holidays, if candy is involved, I have told the teachers I would provide it. It gets pricey throughout the year for the gluten-free parent but compared to gluten-free ingestion, we all know it's worth it.

I hope she enjoys preschool!

aaaaack, since my puter won't let me c&p for some weird reason, I was trying to go back and forth between the open file and this board and typing in the list by hand one at a time and my computer locked up!!!!!!!!! I just got back up...

ok, from what I can remember, the list said Elmers washable glue is gluten-free, Crayola Crayons, Markers, and Paints are gluten-free, as is the Play Clay, but NOT the Play Dough as that contains Wheat. Prism Brand paints are gluten-free

Hope that helps.
