Easter is coming! Spring is almost here and Easter will be following quickly behind this March. This means we are busy decorating here at The Children’s Nook as well as preparing Easter baskets and eggs for my kids’ absolute favorite Easter tradition……egg hunts! Oriental Trading is my favorite resource to turn to for this holiday. The prices are great and the selection allows me to easily get creative and delight the kids on Easter Sunday.
Oriental Trading has an “eggcellent” Easter sale that has allowed me to stock up on lots of party supplies as well as fun and unique goodies to make this Easter for the kids. The variety of different of Easter eggs as well as toys and treats to fill them with is impressive. The Glitter Putty Eggs may be my favorite Easter find at Oriental Trading this year. These clear Easter eggs are filled with sparkly putty that my kids will love to mold and play with. This putty exceeded my expectations. It soft and malleable but not too gooey or sticky. Plus, I was happy to find I was not left with any glitter residue after playing with it. These iridescent glitter putty eggs come packaged very nicely and are each shrink-wrapped to keep them fresh. This putty is really quite pretty and fun. Plus, I didn’t even have to go through the trouble of filling the eggs!
My kids love balloons. Since I have yet to see a kid who could resist a balloon, I am betting you probably know a little one who also loves balloons. Since balloons are pretty tiny and malleable before they are blown up, they make excellent egg fillers. Oriental Trading has a great selection of balloons much-loved characters as well as in a variety colors and designs. Thanks to Oriental Trading, this year my kids will be finding Little Mermaid and Star Wars balloons inside some of their Easter eggs.
Oriental Trading offers a variety of fun crafts and Easter themed activities that will help keep kids busy. My daughter is all about the accessories, so I knew the Easter necklace craft kit would be perfect for the girls in our family. The chunky beads are super cute and will make a pretty necklace for the girls to wear all year round. After sitting through church and then eating their fill of candy, these activities are a great way to focus some of their energy on an entertaining project rather than having them bouncing off the walls with boredom.
The Easter bunny loves to bring special treats to our home that we have either never had before or rarely get to enjoy. Oriental Trading has a lot of Easter themed treats as well as traditional candy treats and more. The chocolate Easter egg suckers are a really nice size and the wrappers are festive and bright. Oriental Trading has rock candy available in a wide variety of colors and flavors. Each piece of rock candy comes individually packaged. The light blue rock candy has a blue raspberry flavor that is yummy and not over powering. The color of this candy is extremely pretty and will look great our Easter color palate.
This Easter I focused mostly on turquoise and purple for party supplies. The turquoise chevron paper lanterns and paper plates paired with a simple turquoise table-cloth all look great with our Easter décor. The purple honeycomb tissue decorations add a little texture to the decor. I plan on getting some fresh daffodils for Easter Sunday because the yellow flowers will look great with turquoise and purple. The paper party supplies are available in a variety of colors and styles at Oriental Trading so you can create the perfect party theme for your Easter gathering.
