Hallmark Back to School Confidence Care Package Review and Giveaway Ends 8/31

Today was the first day of school for our 6, 8 and 9 year olds and the day started with a lot of excitement and a lot of nerves!!  Starting a new school year can be a scary thing but luckily, Hallmark is making it a little bit easier with their awesome products for Back to School!!!

We received 3 great products from Hallmark just in time for the new school year and we could not have been happier with them!!!

 Hallmark’s Kids Collection three-card pack which features encouragement cards for young kids to help battle nerves about school and offer positive reinforcement for hard work. Let them hold onto your words. Kids often get embarrassed when parents say “I love you” in front of their friends. Think about sticking a card in their backpack or inside a textbook, so they can find it later and hold onto it all day.

 Lunchbox Notes - 50 ways to add a little love to lunch time. Surprise your child with a lunchtime delight. Fruits and veggies will help a kid be physically fit, but don’t forget about a child’s emotional wellness. The unexpected “I love you” or “good luck” will let your child know you’re by their side, even after they get on the school bus.

Recordable Storybook: Bring story time to life. Story time is an opportunity to develop reading skills, but it’s also a time for parents and kids to bond! Recordable Storybooks allow you to record your voice, and your little ones can read along with you even if you’re far away. They are also great for encouraging your kids to read and building confidence for reading aloud!

What Do We Think?

I absolutely LOVE the idea of these products!!!  When my kids got up this morning for the first day of school, it was so nice to present them with the cards and I can't wait to hear what they say about the lunchbox notes!  The first day of school is very special and these products give it that extra special touch to help kids feel better.  I think the cards made our oldest 2 children feel much more at ease and our little guy took the storybook on the bus with him so he would have something to read today.  I also think it will help him feel closer to us. My husband and I loved the idea of the storybook so much that we are considering getting a couple for our baby for Christmas this year! I am sure he would love to have something with Mom and Dad's voice on it for when we are away from him. I love Hallmark and the fact that they are always looking for new and innovative ways to help people show that they care. 

If your children are heading off to school soon, you will definitely want to check out all of the great products Hallmark has for Back to School!!!


One lucky reader is going to win their own Back to School Confidence Care Package with all of the products we received!
