Hallmark Back-to-School Care Package Review and Giveaway...

"For Hallmark, the back-to-school season is not just about pencils, binders and glue… it’s about the fact that sometimes this important transition can be overwhelming to kids and parents alike.  As you are putting together your back-to-school shopping lists, consider adding “confidence” and “encouragement” next to those necessary classroom supplies.  Hallmark can help you stock kids up with the support they need to refuel their emotional well being as they head back to class."


We reviewed Hallmark’s Back- to-School Care Package, which included:
·         A pack of Hallmark’s Kids Collection greeting cards which feature kid-appropriate topics, from managing difficult academic or social situations to achieving a personal goal either in the classroom or on the field.
·         A few of 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.


All of these products would be great for back-to-school.  Whether you have teenagers, Kindergarteners or anything in between, Hallmark has the perfect way to show you care.  These cards and notes can be confidence boosters, bits of encouragement or just a way to let your kiddo know you care:)  We especially like the idea of the Bug "Em plush.  When somebody does something great, or needs a pick-me-up (or sometimes just because:) we like to fill this little guy with goodies and leave on the pillow of the recipient.  It never fails to brighten their day.  Then we encourage them to pass it on the next time they think a family member may need it.  It has inspired a great tradition of paying attention to one another and caring about every member of our family.  ABCD Diaries gives Hallmark an A+!

What words and phrases do your kids need to hear from you at this important milestone and all through the school year? Hallmark would love to read about the ways in which you encourage your kids.
