Cammie Weeks

Cammie Weeks, a mother of two, and her husband, Kip, started selling their handmade art supplies at farmers markets in 2008.

It began simply, as all good things do, with the molding dough recipe Cammie's mom made for her as a child. Cammie wanted to give her kids, Jack and Maggie, the opportunity to play, create and get messy, but she didn't want to have to worry about what's hidden in their art supplies.

So, after incorporating natural ingredients into the recipe, the dough was transformed into eco-dough. Rich in color, soft in texture and with a delicate aroma like no other. From there, eco-kids® evolved.

This family business lives by their mantra —"creative play the natural way." New products are developed with this belief in mind. From the ingredients to the unique packaging, eco-kids® works with environmentally friendly companies from around the United States to bring you fresh ideas in the world of art supplies.

Jack and Maggie test it all to make sure the art supplies are fun to play with. After all, that's what it's all about.

    Comments about ECO-ART PAD & ECO-PAINT:

    I purchased the Eco Paint because you get a lot for your money and it is made from natural ingredients. I thought it was easy to mix. My daughter (11 mos) loved to play with it, and it was easy to clean up (especially since she painted herself more than the paper). My only issue with it was that it didn't really spread all that well. I only used it once so far so I am not sure if I just need to change the balance of powder and water or if that is just the way it is. Either way, I was still happy - it just isn't "perfect."

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was prompt and in good condition.
