You know what they say about teachers…a truly great one is impossible to forget. Since classrooms are the doorway to imagination and creativity, there’s no better way to celebrate all the educational rockstars than with a #TeacherOnTheHorizon giveaway! We’re teaming up with @polka.dots.please and @teachingthetinies to give one lucky winner a TON of awesome goodies for the classroom and the craft room! The contest runs from May 2 through May 6—read on for a peek at all the goodies included in this special giveaway & learn how to enter to win them all.
No such thing as too many craft supplies!
From wiggly eyes to foam shapes and craft sticks, this reusable storage jar is jam-packed with 200+ crafting essentials. Use the materials to decorate things like homemade cards & craft stick picture frames—or use the pony beads for practicing basic math skills and color identification! It’s all-in-one creative fun in a handy, dandy jar!
Discover small world play with sensory bins!
These Made by Me! Explore + Create Sensory Bins contain everything little ones need to learn through play. Explore different textures like sand, beads & pebbles—then take the mini figurines on an adventure in sensory land! Sensory toys are a great way to engage in cognitive tasks and encourage storytelling—what’s happening in your prehistoric, underwater, or unicorn world?! Plus, everything stays right there in the bin—it doubles as the play station for mess-free fun!
Put on your thinking cap & become an inventor!
Did you know most inventions happen by accident? Maybe your student has the next great idea rattling around in their head and all they need is the materials to make it work! Ta-da! This inventor’s box has everything kids need to design and build endless creations—including a race car, rocket ship, and bridge! The best part: Not only do STEM kits enhance creative thinking, but they develop problem-solving skills—so important for today’s students!
The motherload of paintbrushes!
A brush for every project and a project for every brush! Stock up your classroom (or the whole school!) with 250 paintbrushes of every size and shape, including foam brushes! Whether your project calls for cool shapes or unique textures, this bundle pack lets little artists explore and create their own masterpieces. Perfect to pair with…
…Washable paints in every color of the rainbow!
What are paintbrushes without paint?! This 30-pack features 30 resealable jars of everything from primary paints to neon colors and even metallics—and most importantly, they’re washable & non-toxic (so you can focus on the fun, not the cleanup)! Let your kiddos explore colors on a variety of materials, from paper to canvas and even wood. Prepare to turn your classroom into a stunning gallery!
Make your own bendy, furry friends with fuzzy sticks!
Everyone’s favorite craft supply: it’s fuzzy sticks—400 of them to be exact! With endless uses—bend them, twist them, cut them, straighten & reuse them—they’re the ultimate tool in sensory play and also help develop fine motor skills. Use them in the classroom to practice color sorting, or even math fundamentals—fuzzy sticks are easy to bend into numbers!
Build & create with wooden craft sticks!
From signs to picture frames and 3D sculptures—with 1,200 craft sticks, there’s enough creativity for your entire class to explore! Not only are they great for counting, creating patterns, sorting, and even spelling, but the bright colors add a rainbow of fun to any classroom. (Hint: Add wiggly eyes & you’ve got a little stick friend!).
Squeeze, stretch, twist! Tons of sensory play with Mixy Squish air-dry clay!
Not quite clay, not quite dough—it’s Mixy Squish, and it’s here to transform hands-on fun into a less-mess experience. Kids LOVE this squishy material, and with 12 different colors to choose from, the sky’s the limit when it comes to what they can create. Plus, the textured add-ins (like beads and foam balls) make it a fun way to explore tactile play.
Fun with foam!
There’s just something fun about foam sheets—they’re soft, spongy & some are even sparkly! This 80-pack features a rainbow of solid & glitter colors, so students can embellish any craft project. They’re great for handmade cards, signs, or creating shapes to glue to any surface. Why make a “flat” project when you can add dimension and texture?!
Calling all mini artists—your paint palettes are waiting!
No classroom (or art room) is complete without paint—and no artist is ready to create their masterpiece without a paint palette! This 15-pack of plastic paint trays is perfect for letting little artists explore color mixing in the circular wells—because we never want to stifle creativity! Not only that, but they’re stackable, storable, and super easy to clean, making them reusable year after year.
Explore the building blocks of learning!
Do the math—students don’t realize they’re learning when they’re having fun. These math manipulatives start as blocks, then you build them into dinosaurs—and the whole time they’re teaching kids early math! Use all 100+ interlocking cubes, along with the interactive double-sided posters, to play STEM games like pattern-building contests and races through prehistoric times. It’s rawr-some!
All the gold stars—and smiley faces and rainbows and unicorns—with sticker books!
It’s no secret kids LOVE stickers—and nothing makes them smile more than seeing one at the top of a paper or project. Show your students some love with two 1000+ sticker books! With everything from alphabet stickers to colorful llamas and tons of uplifting phrases like “Stay Awesome” and “No Bad Days,” these fun designs motivate young learners and inspire positivity.
