Everybody knows Oriental Trading is a great go-to resource for all of the odds and ends, and supplies you need – and I have been a customer for years. However, when I started planning Superkids (the child-care portion of the mom’s group I lead), I was amazed at the depth of Oriental Trading’s product line.
As a start-up ministry offered free of charge, we don’t have a large budget, so finding high-quality, low-cost supplies is a must. I was on the look-out for products that gave me a lot of “bang for my buck” AND were built to last. (Because who wants to be replacing supplies all the time?) I started browsing the Oriental Trading site and found exactly what I was looking for.
The first thing I knew I needed to find was nametags! I didn’t want to bother with writing out new sticker-tags each week, and didn’t have the time to make something. I priced out lanyards online and Oriental Trading had the best deal BY FAR! I was able to get a dozen lanyards WITH the badge holder for just $7.25! That’s just $0.60 a lanyard!! These are PERFECT for our needs. We simply took out the “Tiki Pass” and slipped in our own badges with the child’s name and our logo. The kids love the brightly colored ribbon and I love the durability. You can check these out HERE.
I needed supplies to help organize our preschool classroom, as well as simple but FUN craft projects for our Superkids to do. Our teachers benefit from having all of the supplies ready to go, and our kids love the simplicity as well as the great finished product. I love that I’m able to provide high-quality craft projects on a small budget!
In our curriculum, the kids learn about a new character trait each month. In October, we were focusing on Optimism. When I found these Smile Face Photo Frames, I knew they would be perfect!
I love that this is a hands-on project and offers more of a take-away than a simple paper craft. It is something the kids could take home and use, and be reminded of what they learned in class. And, as a bonus, they had SO much fun making them!
The frames are just $7.50, and include EVERYTHING you need to make 12 frames! That’s just $0.63 a frame! What a deal! You can purchase a set HERE.
Our Superkids can’t wait for our next craft project! I know that no matter what my theme is, I will be able to find what I need at Oriental Trading. You can browse all of their simple craft kits HERE. I love their selection of seasonal craft projects as well! Their variety and prices cannot be beat!
