If you’ve followed my blog for even a short amount of time, Oriental Trading is a name I’m sure you’ll recognize. Oriental Trading has quickly become a one-stop-shop for so many different occasions, and you know I just couldn’t let the Back To School season pass by without picking out some super cute, super fun items for my kiddos to go back to school with. Everything at Oriental Trading is so much more fun (and fun to use) than the stuff you’ll find at any local big box store in your area!
No matter what grade your little one is going into, pencils are always a Back To School must, and no surprise that Oriental Trading has a super fun selection of pencils to choose from. My daughter going into kindergarten fell in love with the Emoji Pencils and just had to have them. My sons are older and prefer mechanical pencils so the Bright .7 mm Mechanical Pencils were a no-brainer for this household. The twisting lead is a nice change from the traditional ‘click’ pencils that tend to fail and be a big fat waste of money.
Rather than send your kiddo with a bag full of pens with different ink colors, try out these super fun Shuttle Pens! These pens are a super fun writing tool to keep on hand, and they’re sure to make jotting down great ideas and to-do lists a lot more fun. Ink colors include black, brown, dark green, tan, red, purple, turquoise, navy, pink and light green ink.
Whether my kiddos are jotting down notes in class or drawing in a few spare minutes of free time, notepads are ALWAYS an item we go through quickly during the school season. I love that Oriental Trading has lined and blank notepads so my kids have the freedom and organization to do what they need to do. Both the Rainbow Glitter Spiral Notepads and Unicorn Spiral Notepads come in packs of 12, so you’ll always be sure to have these cute notepads on hand.
If you have kiddos in school and DON’T go through about 100 erasers by the end of the year, I’d love to know how you get away with it. Oriental Trading has some super cute erasers that will definitely get us through (at least most of) the school year without worrying about running out. There’s nothing that beats a cool ice cream treat on hot summer days. And now you can always have one with you without a melting mess thanks to these super cute Summer Treats Erasers! In Arizona it’s always nice to have a reminder of cool, refreshing things so these erasers are a hug hit with my kids. Are you looking for a colorful addition to your children’s school supplies? Simply remove the lid from one of these Striped Eraser Sticks, pull to your desired length and get to erasing! These are a very useful desk accessory in a rainbow of pretty colors and perfect for kids of all ages.
Even if you’re looking for traditional school supplies, Oriental Trading has you covered there. I was able to order Crayola Classic Tip Markers, Crayola Classic Fine Tip Markers, and Crayola Colored Pencils so I didn’t have to go anywhere else…how awesome is that?
With three kids in three different grades, there’s always a school project or two that needs working on, putting Sharpies in high demand in my home. These Sharpie Chisel Tip Markers are able to make thin or bold lines, so no matter what you’re little one needs to do, these markers will help them achieve an amazing looking project.
Now, I know these don’t look like your typical school supplies, but I always shop for a few fun extras. My daughter’s class has a prize box that the kids get to pull from when they have a really good day, and I thought these Chalkboard Safari Animal Dog Tag Necklaces, Woodland Animal Stamps, and Emoji Rings were just too cute to pass up on.
Whether you’re a parent shopping for your children, or a teacher shopping for your class, there’s no way you can go wrong with Oriental Trading. Check out all they have to offer this Back To School season and make the school year fun for your kiddos!
