Sidewalk chalk is a portable gift that could keep the little ones busy for hours. But even if your curious tot doesn't pop it right in her mouth for a cheeky taste, the dust from conventional versions gets everywhere -- meaning it's also ingested.

Let's avoid the toxic chemicals, shall we?

Veggie Sidewalk Chalk from Uncommon Goods gets its vibrant color from natural ingredients, like organic hibiscus, turmeric, paprika, and spinach held together with rice cereal and rice flower. The vegan chalks may not be exactly nutritional, but they're safe to eat (and wide enough for tiny hands to hold with ease). (Veggie Sidewalk Chalk, $12)
