I don’t know about you, but as a kid one of my most favorite catalogs to flip through was always the Oriental Trading catalog. The crafts alone were enough to keep my eyes glued to the pages, and as I got older the decorations for the holidays was something I was always begging my Mom to buy.
Thanksgiving & Christmas are my most favorite times of the year. I love spending time with my family (and time off work!) and the crafts, baking, cooking, and decorating are just icing on the cake. This year we plan on doing a few crafts from Oriental, as well as buying a few additional decor pieces (I try to add a few new ones each year! My collection is growing quite nicely)
These were 2 of my FAVORITE decor pieces. My son loved playing with the Give Thanks Blocks and spelling out THANKS by himself. I couldn’t get him to leave the pieces alone, Thank goodness they are made well and can stand the test of time (and a 5 year old!)
All the kids also enjoyed putting together the Foam Smile Faces Leaves Wreath Craft Kit as well.
Each kid actually wrote on each a leaf to tell what they were most thankful for this year – I feel blessed to say they all wrote “Family”!
I also got myself something – the cutest Owl Night Light. I like to have some light on in the bathroom in case someone needs to stumble in during the middle of the night. Our previous night light didn’t last very long, but I have been very impressed by the Owl Night Light – especially since it’s so inexpensive. It’s also great because it can be left out all year long.
We also already have plans for our Christmas crafts and decorations as well. I love the Marshmallow Snowman Christmas Ornament , The Wooden Snowman Banner and the Snowman Thermometer Craft Kit, (can you tell I have a thing for Snowmen?)
