Oriental Trading Review

A huge thank-you to Oriental Trading for sending me these items in an exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  

One thing my church does the first week in December is play an active role in the community for the annual Christmas Walk.   During the Christmas Walk all the business's pull out deals and other free fun to get more people in town and shopping in the stores.   

This year our church handed out free hot chocolate, coffee, and snacks.   We also had a free craft thanks to Oriental Trading!   There were so many mess free activities to chose from their site that it was hard to narrow down the choices.   I knew I wanted it to be simple and mess free as parents don't want to walk around with wet glue or paint.  So I was very pleased to find the many choices for the magic color products.   The magic color items are black but when you use a scraper tool you will scrape and see the bright color underneath.   It made for a simple, fun and mess free activity!   I loved the inspirational words as well as the beautiful Christmas tree ones! 

The ornaments were a huge hit!   Parents loved how easy it was for little hands but also the big kids showed an interest and took their time to created beautiful designs in them. 

I received each of the items described below!

We had some very happy kids... and yes even some "big" kids joined in and made some fun ornaments, bracelets, and magnets. 

Once the package arrived I inspected each item.  There were a couple of the magic color items that had minimal scratches already on it but nothing major that would make me angry.   Each item listed above is not going to break your bank... VERY AFFORDABLE!   I did have to tie on the strings to the ornaments and put the magnets on but it was very simple and still well worth the cost!  

The ornaments, magnets, and bracelets are for sure on my recommendation list for anyone and everyone!   Thanks Oriental Trading for helping me create a successful Christmas Walk for my community!   :)  Parents loved the mess free activity!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
