    Making pictures, cards or decorations with ink pads are fun, so finding a baby safe ink pad for children to use is a good way to get them involved, and also avoid or minimize any hazards to their heath or well-being.

    These ink pads don’t usually come in a lot of colors, with the main ones being black, blue and pink. However, some that are meant for crafts more than are meant for using on a baby’s foot do come in additional colors. They are still non-toxic like the ones for using on a baby’s foot. The reason they are non toxic is that some are made of vegetable dyes, and all are non-toxic and free of any of the usual acids used in making regular inks.

    Here are some websites that feature a rubber stamp that is safe for children to use:
