I am painting wood toys for my daughters and am curious if you could recommend a non toxic varnish to put over the acrylic paint. Thanks so much : )

Probably the safest thing would be not to varnish at all, but use a wax, and the buff it to a shine. You could even use a bees wax, and that would be non toxic.

But that won't work on Acrylics, right?

I would probably forgo the acrylics and use natural varnish. But if your daughter is past the "I'll put anything in my mouth" phase, just use acrylics and ask in the DIY which varnish is recommended for toys.
