"The beginning of each school year is a reminder of how quickly time flies. It’s an opportunity to make memories that will last far beyond the classroom years.  And, whether it’s kindergarten or senior year, sometimes a simple “You can do it!” helps remind kids that you’re rooting for them, no matter what.  

Because the start of a school year can be a whirlwind for everyone, Hallmark wants to help you pause and capture those special moments and celebrate kids as they head back to class with new gift and greetings designed to create lasting memories and share an extra boost of encouragement throughout the school year.

Here are some great ways Hallmark can help with thte  busy back to school season:

o   Pics ‘n’ Props School Days Activity Kit: Capture a child’s first day of school in a creative way with the snap of a camera and Hallmark’sPics ‘N’ Props School Days Activity Kit. The kit includes chalkboards and a frame to document the first day each year — from kindergarten to senior year! Add your photos to the included “My First Day!” photo album to create a lasting memory that can be admired throughout the years.

o   SO SO Happy™ Greetings: Hallmark’s new line of SO SO Happy greetings help moms connect with their kids in a way they understand and appreciate. From Taco to Tribe, a variety of adorable characters inspire and celebrate positivity, acceptance and love — attributes especially important during the school year. Cards even include fun surprises for kids like shoelaces, key chains and more.  Check out one example below!

o   Kids Encouragement Greetings: Whether it’s a new social situation, a test, first game of the year or any day of the week, sometimes kids need a confidence boost. These cards feature kid-appropriate topics to help encourage the special kiddos in your life.
o   Back-to-School Greetings: The newest back-to-school greetings feature furry friends to help you say “Go get ‘em!” to the kiddos in your life."

What we thought:  The Pics 'N' Props School Days Activity Kit is adorable!  What a great way to memorialize your kiddo's school accomplishments:)  The kit comes with pre-made inserts for the chalk board or you can write in whatever you'd like.  The photo/memory book that comes in the kit is the perfect way to document all the important school info for your child each year.  I really love this kit!  The selection of cards we reviewed was great as well.  From the first day of Kindergarten to the first day of college, there is an inspirational card for everyone.  The fun, cute cards are a great way to show you care.  The kiddos loved these:)  ABCD Diaries gives Hallmark back to school products an A+!
