Winter Kids Crafts with Oriental Trading

Hello all!  Today I have some winter themed projects that were hours of fun for my kids and I to create together!  All the products in this post are from Oriental Trading.  Be sure to check out their winter section to see what would fit your crafting style.
 First up, the Fleece Winter Tied Pillow Craft Kit was a hit!  I had two nephews over along with my 3 boys and they all were able to pick up on how to make these with some supervision from me.  They are ages 5-10, so if you have kids or grandkids in that age group or older, they can definitely do this!  They love having these on their beds.
 Next, my boys made melty bead creations using white fuse beadsblack fuse beads, and shimmer fuse beads.  I think my favorite one is the mug of hot chocolate!  My 7 year old wanted to make sure there were marshmallows in it since that is how he likes his hot chocolate :)  The silver doily and the wood piece are also from Oriental Trading!
 These bracelets are ones that I created using the Celebration Wire-Wrapped Bracelet Craft Kit.  Aren't they gorgeous?!  Perfect for ringing in the new year or any occasion, really.  I worked on these while my boys were creating the notecards you see in the next picture.
 These notecards are 3x3" and the bases are created with white cardstock.  They are decorated with Winter Washi TapeSnowflake Stickers, and Ranger Stickles™ Metallic Glitter Glue Set.  I thought these would be sweet to add onto little treats for the co-workers my husband oversees at his job.  My boys also signed the backs of the cards.
 Last, but certainly not least, my boys each decorated DIY Mini Coffee Cups with with Winter Washi TapeSnowflake Stickers, and Ranger Stickles™ Metallic Glitter Glue Set.
 There was a lot of planning on what each one would add to their cup.  I think the pretty sparkles of the Ranger Stickles™ Metallic Glitter Glue Set made it a favorite for embellishing with!
 They even added Stickles to the top of the cups!  These cups are 4oz. and are the perfect size for a few candies.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
