Christmas Classroom and Stocking Treat's At The Best Prices

Treat bags are always a huge hit with my children's friends at school but they are so costly. Oriental Trading makes purchasing in bulk for parties and classrooms easy and affordable. They have every theme and holiday you can imagine covered. They have such a huge selection that you can find everything you need in one place from candy, toys, teachers gifts, bags and more. Oriental Trading is sure to have the perfect gift, d├ęcor or stocking stuffers. Check out their Christmas Holiday selection here.

How do you build the perfect treat bags and or stocking. You start with the stocking or bag of course! Oriental has every type of bag you can imagine. If you plan on gifting larger gifts to your child's classroom look at the gift bags, we always mix up a bunch of different goodies so we chose the treat and favor bags. They also have cellophane and tote bags. They have the perfect little option for every gift type. 

I am a treat and favor expert in my opinion. I have three kids so I have made many treat and favor bags for classrooms, birthday parties and even baby showers. I always try to put a lot of thought into the favors and treats and do a good mix of candies as well as fun tinker toys as I call them. Let me tell you a few of my favorites and give you some ideas you can use the next time you need to make special treats for your child's class. Price is always a huge factor so I choose the best and most useful items in the largest quantities for the cheapest single price per unit.

When shopping for toys I start with the sticky hands. They are priced super cheap and you get a lot for the price. I call these smalls I try to choose two to three smaller items and one larger item in the toys to fill the bags. No one realizes how much money you can run into making treat bags for in my case two classrooms as my sons are both school aged. You really have to watch and be careful or instead of the $50 you plan on spending that quickly turns into $200. I love the mitten sticky hands. They are festive, fun and cute for kids and priced great for treat bags! Next I search out the crayons and books. Crayon 4-6 packs are always priced great and the book is a larger item to go with the crayons making your treat bag pretty full. Other ideas to choose from are the putties, erasers, slimes and always search the sale items. You can usually find great items in the sale section that are priced cheaper.

Last we have to add our candy to our stocking or treat bag! This is always my kids favorite part. Bubble Tape is their go to and mine here. Bubble Tape is very large and fills a large portion of the treat bag or stocking and the kids love it! Marshmallows of any kind are always cheap and they are perfect for this time of year. Find a marshmallow based treat and fill your stocking or treat bag with 2-3 pieces per child. The one must is candy canes! They are super cheap and the perfect addition.

This year my kids treat bags consisted of bubble tape, marshmallow snow bits, candy canes, erasers, sticky hand mittens and glow sticks. By the time I purchased enough for two classrooms bags included we spent under $75. My kids love being able to share with their friends these amazing bags and I love that my kids are happy! It is a win win!
