I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review a couple of the ornament crafts from Oriental Trading Company. Pretty much every year I use at least one ornament craft with my students during our winter holiday party. This year I chose for them to make Blue Snowflake Layered Christmas Ornament Craft Kit and the Peace, Hope, & Joy Ornament Craft.
These ornaments were prefect for my 2nd graders! They had a blast making these during our holiday party centers. Each ornament crafts comes individually packaged with all of the supplies needed to make the ornament and directions. This is great for class projects or even for girl scout crafts or to do as a little party craft with your kids and their friends.
The layered felt snowflake ornaments were gorgeous and perfect for a winter themed party if you aren't celebrating a specific Christmas theme. My students were able to make these completely on their own with just a little help folding the pipe cleaner in the beginning and tying the string on at the end.
These were bigger than I expected (about 8") and turned out beautifully. The kids absolutely loved them!
The Hope, Peace, & Joy ornament crafts were also a hit!
Each piece on this foam ornament is self- adhesive- including the jewels. As a teacher I love this because that means there's no messy glue to deal with and every piece will actually stick when the kids put these together and not fall off 30 minutes later. My students made these their own by deciding exactly where they were going to put each jewel. I did hot glue the hanging string to each of their ornaments when they were finished to make sure the string would stick.
Right now is the perfect time to pick up some ornament crafts for next year since a lot of them are up to 65% off! You can connect with Oriental Trading Company by liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter or Pinterest.
