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!
