There's another holiday coming up, and Oriental Trading is again my one stop shop! Without ever leaving my house and braving a crowded store, we're ready for Easter.

For our family, Easter is a fun time to celebrate the start of spring, the gift of Jesus’ resurrection, AND all things cute and cuddly like chicks and bunnies! My six year old daughter, who recently wrote in her school journal that her greatest temptation is candy, also sees every holiday as an opportunity for some new candy treats! Oriental Trading has you covered no matter what you’re celebrating this spring!

I love that when I’m shopping online with Oriental Trading, I can get everything I need for crafting, snacking, decorating, and gift giving all in one place. In fact, I’m often surprised at what we can find! My daughter was in charge of our most recent Oriental Trading order. She loves to browse through the different sections of the Oriental Trading website and come up with her list of must-haves. Not surprisingly, sweet snacks were on the list. We were able to do a complete stock-up on name brand candies - there’s a huge variety, bulk packaging, and reasonable prices. We have so much candy this Easter that I’m pretty sure the Easter Bunny just may borrow some when he fills eggs for our kiddos this year!

We love crafting anytime, but especially at holiday times. It’s a great way to get our house decorated and ready for entertaining family and friends. We love hosting holiday meals at our home and part of that is just making the space special for the occasion. We will use our Sand Art Easter Shapes and Self-Inflating Easter Mylar Balloons to do just that. Both of these come in a set of 12 - an assortment of 4 different Easter themed designs in each.

Because it feels good to give to friends, gift-giving is always a part of our holiday celebrations. I think my daughter would make it a part of every single day if she could! She chose some adorable Mini Easter Cameras and Jumping Bunnies to gift to her classmates for Easter this year. The Mini Easter Cameras remind me of the old viewfinder toys we had when I was a kid. Each click of the camera reveals a sweet Easter image. These little cameras are sold in a package of 24 so we have plenty to enjoy and plenty to share! The Jumping Bunnies are super cute and very fun! Just press down on their backs and they hop across the floor! We are having so much fun racing them and challenging them to see who jumps the furthest! This set comes with tons of bunnies - 144 to be exact! These are a hit in our home so we know for sure they’ll be a hit with our friends as well.

We love a lot of things but there are three things we REALLY love. Well… way more than three… but this next item was the perfect compilation of three current favorites: stickers, bunnies, and emojis! Seriously?! YES! Are these not the best? This roll of 100 stickers is almost too cute for me to handle. We adore them. They are individually perforated so easy to share too!

My bunny obsessed six year old could not have been more excited to find that although Oriental Trading does not sell LIVE bunnies, they do sell bunny ears. This Plush Bunny Ears Headband is the perfect way to let the world know her love for bunnies and let the Easter Bunny know her desire to get one soon. 

We can’t wait to celebrate Easter this year, largely in part to this huge assortment of goodies from Oriental Trading to help us get ready! If you’re looking for supplies to celebrate Easter this year - at church, home, school, or anywhere - Oriental Trading has what you need! Crafts, supplies, snacks, toys… you name it. As always, there’s a huge variety at an affordable cost. The only issue you might have is narrowing down your list! Oriental Trading is offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders through April 6 - just enter the promotion code EASTER17 at checkout. Happy Easter!

Valentine's Day Crafts with Oriental Trading

With a gift-giving, craft-loving first grader, it's no surprise that we start preparing for most holidays well in advance. Valentine's Day is no exception! We started our Valentine's Day planning extra early this year with the help of Oriental Trading. My daughter has always enjoyed crafting her own Valentine's rather than getting store bought ones, and this year she stepped it up a notch. Instead of DIY Valentine's alone, she also prepared some super cute, simple, and fun goody bags for each of her classmates. 

This set of DIY Valentine Cards was just what we needed to get started on our project. This set comes with 24 cards and 24 envelopes. It includes pink, white, and red folded cards as well as white envelopes.

For decorating, we chose a hefty assortment of stickers and decorative jewels. Oriental Trading had so many different options to choose from!

We are loving these Emoji Stickers! Aren't they amazing?! We used them as stickers, but as you can see, they double as Valentines! They come in a set of 12. Who wouldn't love to receive one of these for Valentine's Day? Super duper cute!

These Fabulous Foam Self-Adhesive Valentine Cookie & Candy Shapes come in a bag of 500! Just peel the backs and decorate to your heart's content (no pun intended)!

There's nothing more exciting to a first grader than Heart-Shaped Jewels and with Oriental Trading's package of 150 there are plenty of these sparkling gems to add to our cards! They are not self-adhesive so you'll need a glue stick handy but once they are glued down, they stay put, and certainly add a special something to Valentine crafts!

Aren't these turning out great?

We found the perfect Mini Red Gift Bags for our treats! They are tiny bags, but so cute, and perfect for our project and the goodies we chose to gift our friends. The outside of each bag was decorated with Peanuts Valentine StickersWe've gotten these themed stickers every holiday over the past year and love them. A big roll of 100 perforated stickers means lots for decorating and plenty left for gifting as well.

We chose items for our goody bags that were fun, age appropriate, and generally gender neutral so that everyone would enjoy them. I love that Oriental Trading makes it so easy to get a bulk selection of one item affordably! We know our friends will love their Heart Rings, Glitter Heart Tattoos, Valentine Monster Pop-Ups, Mini Heart Stress Toys (makes the School Counselor in me proud!), and of course, Hershey's Hugs & Kisses Chocolate Candy.

We love making the holidays special for our friends - because it makes it special for us at the same time! Oriental Trading always has what we need for crafting and gift giving - fun for the kids with just the right price for Mom. Oriental Trading saves me a trip to the store (a huge plus for a busy mom) and offers such a huge selection of affordable fun. So save yourself a last minute trip to the store to buy Valentines for your child's classmates this year and place a Valentine's Day order with Oriental Trading today!
