Hallmark Back-to-School Care Package Review

I think most kids everywhere are now back in school. I know mine went back just after Labour Day here in Nova Scotia and are settling into a routine of school and homework.  Olivia is in grade 9 and Bridget is now in grade 3. They grow up so fast don’t they?

Hallmark has a Back-to-School Care Package that is perfect to help provide your kids with confidence and encouragement. It’s also a great way to show them how much you love them.

It includes the following products:

1. Bug ‘Em: This plush bug has a zippered pocket that you can put cards, notes or other treats in. The “feelers” on the outside are bendable to hold a small card or item like a lollipop. You can put it in their backpack for a little surprise when they open their lunch or keep him at home and stick notes in for special occasions or “just because”. We keep our Bug ‘Em at home and I’ve been putting him around the house and in Bridget’s room with random items in it like candy and notes.

2. Lunchbox Notes: This is a booklet of 50 unique notes that moms & dads can personalize and add to their child’s lunchbox. Some of them have fill in the blanks and some are just a note that’s already printed that you just rip off and add to the lunch. It’s a great way to remind your child that they are loved. I really like this one that says, “I’ve been thinking it over and I’ve concluded that on the coolness scale, you’re off the charts!”.

3. Any Day Greeting Cards for Kids featuring Justin Bieber: Both girls are fans of Justin Bieber so these cards were a hit!

4. Kids Encouragement Greeting Cards: These cards feature kid-appropriate topics like congratulating them on their grades and some just to tell them you love them and support them. You don’t really need a special occasion to give a card like this to your child. It’s something meaningful that you can give them anytime!

Visit Hallmark to see all the different ways you can offer your kids encouragement and show them how you feel in a fun, unique way!
