This week’s Five for Friday post is all about Valentine goodies from Oriental Trading!

Here is a direct link to all of Oriental Trading’s Valentine Goodies!

Such cute stuff!

I showed you these precious little Valentine Bees last week! They spoke directly to my heart! And, I HAD to have them for little Valentine treats for my first graders.

IMG_1736

They come in a set of 12 with a mixture of pink and red hearts.

IMG_1756

I made simple little cards and slipped them into mini clear ziplock bags.

IMG_1757

These are prepped and are ready for Valentine’s Day {weeks in advance!}

I also got these heart cardboard boxes for our classroom Valentine card exchange.

IMG_1752

I have made boxes and bags each year and this is my first time in buying a pre-made box. I totally too the easy {but cute!!} way out. I put together 18 of these boxes in probably less than 20 minutes.

IMG_1753

I did put a piece of clear packing tape on the bottom of each box for extra support but overall they are a good quality for a classroom card box. And, the size is perfect!

I also thought I would need some bags of some sort for my students to carry home to hold other stuff from our classroom party. I ordered some Christmas bags like these a few years back and when I saw these I immediately wanted these cute heart ones.

IMG_1780IMG_1781

They come in a pack of 50 – so depending on my class size I can get at least two years worth of use from these (possibly 3). And you get an assortment of all three designs.

IMG_1782

They are a great size 12x17 inches. Big enough to carry home lots of goodies!

These little mini heart stress balls are probably my FAVORITE! They just make my heart happy!

IMG_1750

You get an assortment of pink and red. And there are 24 in a pack.

IMG_1770

I made this super quick toss money game.

IMG_1773

My students will each get 6 hearts to toss in the buckets to earn some money for each shot they make. The kiddo who makes the most money will win some kind of little prize {or maybe just a hug!}

I also ordered these Valentine dart game boards. I don’t have a plan for them yet. Other than just to let my kids play with them!

IMG_1777

They come with 4 little velcro balls. I cannot wait to use these! So cute!

IMG_1740

I ordered two because I thought I might make some kind of game with two teams.

Tomorrow is our 100th of school. Some years I go ALL OUT.. and spend several days celebrating. This year I have a much more simpler one-day planned out. I will still be using my 100th Day Unit.
