This year for Mother's Day Craft It with Oriental Trading!


I do not know how many times I have said it but I seriously do LOVE Oriental Trading! This round I picked out Mother's day items in which would make a great gift.  I was thinking of myself when looking for items of which stood out to me and what I would enjoy getting from my children for mother's day.

I loved the Ceramic Watering Can Planters, at first I thought I would buy some paint and let the kids have at it but then thinking of the mess and how much paint I would have to buy I ended up getting permanent markers.  They worked really well and reduced the clean up afterwards. I love how the kids each had their own idea on how to decorate the watering can. I did the cow :) I plan to replace my glasses that hold my bamboo with my kids watering cans that they each created.


What a thoughtful DIY craft gift for Mom and Dad. A creative addition to your craft supplies, decorate and surprise your loved ones with one of these customized DIY Ceramic Watering Can Planters. Use your own paint, markers and other craft supplies to design these watering cans however you please! Pass them out to students for a fun classroom activity they can take home! 5" wide x 3 1/2" tall. © OTC

Next, I picked was the Self-Adhesive Flower Bouquet Craft Kit. I picked this one out because I knew my daughters especially would enjoy doing because of it being a craft. What was funny is when they first opened the packages they all thought that we would have to use glue but turns out if you look hard enough in the center is a cut out so you can just string them on the pipe cleaners. Each set of flowers had more than enough to make a one of a kind piece.


This fun and easy craft kit is perfect for Mother’s Day! With a bouquet of forever-fresh blooms, it makes a lovely decoration for spring, too. Includes self-adhesive felt pieces, chenille stems and satin ribbon. 10 1/2" All craft kit pieces are pre-packaged for individual use. Kits include instructions and extra pieces.

This round when picking out items I was looking for less mess and things I would actually keep for awhile. I am not trying to be mean but you can only have so many sticker, paper, etc crafts, although I threw in the Self-Adhesive Flower Bouquet. Keeping with the using and keeping theme I picked out the Butterfly Suncatcher Wind Chimes, which again I had my kids use the markers, which they came out really well. There are 3 butterflies to choose from, which the kids only at first thought there was 2 but after one kid colored we noticed that the other was a little different at the bottom. I hung them up with fishing wire in our pool window.

I also picked out Feather Butterflies, which because we have a small pond out front I let my kids go and place them around. We now have a dash of color in the pond out front and on my bamboo plants I have inside. I think they are a great way to decorate your mom's home and will bring her joy with the bright and beautiful colors of the butterflies.

Finally my absolute favorite the DIY Ceramic Bobblehead Frames! I honestly had forgot I ordered these, and I am so happy I did get them. These are the cutest things ever! Each dozen comes with 6 girls and 6 boys. Each one of my kids grabbed their gender and made one however they wished. We kept the plastic bubble that goes around the neck on while coloring the bobbleheads. I wish I had pics of their faces to place in the center but right now I don't so my daughters drew smiley faces on them LOL. They all came out great and I cannot wait to really finish them with their pictures in place.
