Oriental Trading is your go-to source for fun inspiration! Celebrating Over 80 Years of Fun!
Many children in the United States live below the poverty line, so getting cool Valentine’s Day supplies that help with their learning has made a huge difference. I love making a difference for kids who aren’t as fortunate as others. I have talked about my love of Valentine’s Day for a period of six years on this blog and what has changed is that I now get to put together fun events for an entire classroom instead of just for our family and friends. This year, I was able to put together an awesome list of Valentine items for Brooke’s second grade class and it was really awesome and rewarding. I took into consideration what I thought were great crafts and items for kids to be able to take home and use if their families didn’t have extra money to spend. I also wanted to add educational items and learning incentives to incorporate into the Valentine theme which was possible through the company, Oriental Trading. Plus, it helps a teacher out when you donate fun holiday items to their classroom! Bonus!

It’s great to be able to provide creative crafts, Valentine boxes, learning incentives, and writing materials for kids to celebrate the season while encouraging writing.
