Pack A Little Smile With Hallmark ~Giveaway

Now that the craziness of the back-to-school rush has slowed down (at least a tad), its time to start thinking about ways to make their day special all year long. (After all, the excitement of a new school year only lasts for so long.) One way to keep things fresh and exiting is by slipping little surprises into lunch boxes or school bags. No… not more toys. Just love notes. I fondly remember my mom sticking fun little notes in my lunch from time to time when I was in school, and it always made me smile and feel special.

Hallmark has taken lunch-time love notes to the next level with pre-printed notes. The tablet of 50 notes include cute messages like, “You’re a super star. When can I get your autograph.” and “I’m hugging you in my heart right now. I know, I know – I am squishing you. I’ll let go… in a minute.”

There are even fill in the blank notes like, “I’m so impressed by you! Here are 3 things you are really good at: 1)__________ 2) _________ 3) ___________” and “WOW! Congratulations. You did such a great job on__________”

The notes are filled with words of encouragement to help build up your kiddos’ self esteem. Something we could all use now and again.

There’s also a cuddly little lady bug available from Hallmark who is ready to hold your note and perhaps a little goodie too. I love that the “Bug ’em” is reusable. It could quickly become a family tradition passing him around to various family members who need a little smile.

In addition to little notes, Hallmark always has big notes to share too. From ‘rockin cards that sing, to cute cards offering a bit of encouragement, Hallmark’s got ya covered.

If you have a tween in the house, you can even get some words of encouragement from Justin Bieber. LOL!
