Oriental Trading is the place for all of your holiday and new years needs!

The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!
It's the most wonderful time of the year (in my best singing voice) haha! It really is the best time of the year. People just seem happier and in the holiday spirit. One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is help out during my kids classroom parties. I always turn to Oriental Trading for everything I need. From fun little crafts, to treat bags and games they always have exactly what I'm looking for.
This year was no different! At parties we always play a few games, do a small take home craft, eat lots of yummy snacks and I love bringing goodie bags as well. At the last party one little guy thanked me and said that it was the best party ever and he was beyond excited about his goodie bag. To some kids the smallest little gift is the most special and I love that Oriental Trading always has just what  I need. It's so fun planning a school party and seeing the kids faces light up when they get their own little gift, playing fun games and simply having fun.

(Update: pictures from the party, fun!!!)
So here are a few things I'm contributing to my son's second grade party this year all from Oriental Trading.
1. Pin the Nose on the Snowman --I'm always looking for an easy game that the whole class can play and love this fun spin on a classic game.  Blind fold one, have classmates spin them a few times and watch them all giggle when their friends pin the nose on the snowman's hat or chin!
2. Hot Cocoa Thumbprint Ornaments with Card Craft Kit --I'm so excited for the kids to do this craft this year. It looks so cute! It's a hot cocoa mug ornament that kids get to put together. Kids will love personalizing their very own mug ornament  with their names, adding cute decorations with their fingers and the stampers included and gluing cute pom-pom marshmallows on the top. Kids also get to  fill in the blanks on the card craft. It's one of those ornaments that parents and kids will look back at hanging on the tree for a long time remembering just how tiny their little fingers were and the cute answers they put on the card! What a fun addition to the Christmas Tree!
3. Classic Christmas Stockings --Usually I just get little goodie bags to fill up, but this Christmas I found the cutest stockings at Oriental Trading. I'm going to add each students name on them and fill each one with little goodies. Oriental Trading has a huge selection of holiday items. We picked out some bracelets and glittery pencils for the girls, snowmen footballs and pencils for the boys and then we are filling the rest with candy which Oriental Trading has too!
4. Merry and Mod -- How cute is this Mod and Merry Garland?! Love it! Love that Oriental Trading also offers the best party decorations and this new Mod and Merry line is Fun, Fun, Fun and right up my ally! I think I'll hang it up welcoming kids at the class party too!
Whether you're planning a Christmas party or are already lining up New Years plans, make sure you check out Oriental Trading for all of your party needs and so much more!
