My favorite place to buy party supplies, craft projects and seasonal items is Oriental Trading. They always have the biggest, most affordable products for every occasion including Valentine’s Day. I had the pleasure of receiving some items from Oriental Trading for evaluation purposes. I am genuinely excited about Valentine’s Day this year because this is the first Valentine’s Day that we will be with our 3 grandchildren. So naturally, I chose items for them.
Here are the items I received:
Wonka Pixy Stix Valentine Candy Card Kit
Sweetarts Valentine Candy Card Kit
Disney Fairies Valentine Candy Card Kit
Valentine Mustache Character Tattoos
Valentine Mailbox Craft Kit
Monster Valentine Ornaments
DIY Valentine Craft Bags with Stickers
Love Bug Adhesive Foam Shapes
Jumbo Foam Hearts
I certainly love all of the items I received from Oriental Trading. The Candy Card Kits are ideal for classroom parties. My grandchildren are going to be using them for their Valentine’s Day parties at school and daycare. They were thrilled to see that each one got a different card kit. They will also be distributing the tattoos and pinwheels with their Valentine’s. I don’t know any child that doesn’t LOVE temporary tattoos and pinwheels! I totally fell in love with the Mailbox Craft Kit. It includes enough mailboxes and pieces to make 15. The best part about this kit is there are extra pieces included just in case you need something else. The kit itself contains small parts and is a little more challenging to put together than I was expecting. The adhesive pieces didn’t stick particularly well to the mail boxes, so I used my low temp glue gun to assemble it. Although I wouldn’t recommend this project for young children, I honestly like the way the mailbox turned out. It is super cute and can be changed around to personalize it. I love doing simple craft projects that are fast, fun and kid friendly. The Monster Valentine Ornaments include foam adhesive stickers used to create the monsters and are a fun craft project for children. Another terrific craft kit that is perfect for children is the DIY Valentine Craft Bags with Stickers. Children can decorate their bags by simply putting stickers on the bags, this is an excellent way to encourage creativity. Additionally, the Love Bug Adhesive Foam Shapes are perfect for any DIY Valentine’s Day craft.
I use those with the Jumbo Foam Hearts to create personalized Valentine’s Day magnets. You can see the project details here.
