We have had a lot of reasons to celebrate this year: new house, new baby, and the start of Kindergarten for our oldest. But so often we only celebrate events, not the every day. Now with Hallmark kids cards, you can celebrate events AND the every day. To celebrate in a BIG way, you can find Hallmark poster-sized cards for kids. Let me share how I celebrated a totally normal Monday with my kids.
To start with, I took Lincoln shopping with me at Walmart and told him we were buying the card for someone else. (I was a little vague on the details, which is not the same as lying, since kids are always fabulous at pointing that out to parents.) When we reached the Hallmark cards, Lincoln’s face lit up as soon as he saw the Darth Vader poster card.
The last three Fridays Rob and I have watched the original Star Wars movies with the boys. They now spend their days building the Death Star out of wooden blocks. So a card with Darth Vader on it was a no-brainer. This card didn’t have an occasion, just CELEBRATE! There was a great selection of occasion cards with various characters on them, but this one was perfect for my master plan. Though there is a certain amount of fun in opening a card, it is also a huge thing to wake up with an almost life-sized Darth Vader on the back of your door. Celebrate THAT!
I love this idea of the poster-sized kids cards from Hallmark! We usually save cards anyway, but when the card folds out into a giant poster, it will be around to stay for a while. Although, the boys may take to it with light sabers.Why not celebrate each day? Why wait for an occasion? This would make a great card with a birthday gift, but for a random Monday this is also a fabulous idea. I want someone to give ME a card on a random Monday. (Hint, hint, Rob.) I’m not sure I’d want any of the posters on the kids cards though. Maybe a life-sized Conan O’Brien? That would be hilarious. Anyway. Back to the kids.
Here are a few shots of Lincoln in a blur of excitement over Darth Vader. The force IS strong with this one. I don’t know that you should literally celebrate every.single.day with a greeting card, but if you do, definitely sing up for the Hallmark Rewards Program. For every 5 cards you buy at Walmart, you get a reward. Who doesn’t love rewards? I know that we will definitely be snagging more of the kids cards, so I’m all about the rewards. Though the excitement at seeing Darth Vader in their room was a reward in and of itself.
You can also follow #kidscards to see what bloggers and other real life people are saying about Hallmark and the Rewards Program. I think this is a great option and much less annoying than those musical cards. Parents, can I get an Amen?
