Summertime Fun Supplies -- Where to Buy

Disclosure: I will receive thank you products for writing this post. All opinions are my own. I have not received or used any of these supplies, but am sharing ideas with you.
 
Where do you get all of your supplies for Summertime Fun? My go to place is Oriental Trading. They have great prices and lots of fun things. Many people know them for their party supplies, but they have so much more!! Of course they have everything you need for your picnics and barbecues as well as for any luaus you may want to throw. And of course they have everything for Vacation Bible School (or just some Bible learning at home). Every Sunday School teacher knows that Oriental Trading is the place to go for Bible crafts and religious toys.

However some of my favorite things are to get your kids active and outside enjoying the beautiful weather!! Perhaps you could set up an obstacle course with products like these Crawl Through Arches and Tropical Potato Sacks (there are many different designs to choose from but I liked these) which are available in the Games & Activities



Can you see your kids and perhaps yourself out there getting moving with these kind of fun things?

Of course if you are trying to keep them from the summer slide or homeschooling year round, there are some outdoor games that can be used to teach as well--like this Giant Backyard Dominoes and Backyard Word Game (both are also found in the Game & Activities). They even have a Backyard Snakes & Ladder Game which of course can help with counting, addition, and subtracting. For math ideas with the dominoes check out these.

One of our favorite things to do in the summer (and spring) is explore bugs. Whether it is catching them, looking at them with magnifying glasses and more, Oriental Trading has the supplies for it as well as for bug crafts! And I have to say I love this Kickball Love Bug Craft Idea found on their Craft Ideas for Kids. There are many other fun ideas for your Summertime Fun as well as all year round and some for those days you have to stay indoors for whatever reason.

 I hope you will go check out all these great supplies and more. I would love to hear your ideas inspired by Oriental Trading products for Summertime Fun. Please comment below!!
