Send the Kids Back to School with Love from Hallmark



Are your kids heading back to school soon?

Trying to find great ideas to let them know you're thinking of them throughout their first days? Why not let Hallmark help with what they do best, creating cherished memories on paper!

Hallmark has an amazing Back to School line of cards, sentiments, and toys for kids of any age including:
  • Kids Encouragement greeting cards, which feature kid-appropriate topics from managing difficult academic or social situations to achieving a personal goal in the classroom or on the field. 
  • Hallmark’s “any day” greeting cards for kids, featuring music sensation Justin Bieber
  • Lunchbox Notes, which offer 50 ways for you to add a little love to lunchtime. 
  • Bug ’Em, a pint-sized plush that can hold cards and other tokens of encouragement and give an unexpected lift to any youngster’s day. 

These wonderful products not only let your child know that you care on their first few days, it also offers an open line of communication with your child. After they get home and you want to talk to them about their first day, you can start by asking if they received your message or card and then go from there. 

My son absolutely loved the plush Bug 'Em I sent with him on his first day of preschool. His teacher knew that I left a special not for him wiht my Lunchbox Notes and had him open up his little bug after snacktime. She read it to him and let him know that I was thinking of him and how special he was.

When he got home he immediately asked if I hid a secret note in his bug. He was so excited that he wanted to leave me a note the next day at school.

And the Bug 'Em line also comes with an adorable ladybug as well (my daughter's favorite) so I know we'll have to head back out to Hallmark and pick her up one too even though she's a bit too young for school!

Not only does leaving these little words of encouragement let your child know your thinking of them, it also builds up self esteem, independence, and motivation to keep on going! Because they know that they have the support they need at home to thrive at school.

What are you most looking forward to this school year?

Besides mentioning on the giveaway that I was looking forward to being more involved at Tee's school this year, I also enjoyed school clothes shopping. It was fun.

Hallmark makes such thoughtful products and that Bug 'Em is really cute.

There is something so incredibly special about receiving a greeting card from a loved one... no matter how old you are. Hallmark makes this world a happier place.
