Hallmark Pics 'n' Props School Days Activity Kit

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.

I wish I had this for my first 2 boys but better late then never. I am able to capture my youngest son who started Kindergarten and my 2 daughters which one will start Pre-K next year.  The Pics 'n' Props School Days Activity Kit is a fun way to capture your child as they grow up in a quick and easy set.  It comes with everything you need to shoot fun Back to School photos from Pre-K to Graduate!,  as well as a cute frame to show off your new photo each year. 

Poor Joshua this was his before school first day shot and then I got a after school shot : )

 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’s Pics ‘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. 

 SO many fun cards for Back to School! I didn't even know that was a choice in card giving. Some of them even have shoelaces! I am blessed to know many children and will have a great time giving some of them cards for their first day of school. 

 One reader is going to win a "Making Memories and Encouraging Kids" Gift Pack which includes the Pics 'n' Props and a selection of Hallmark Cards. Contest will end 9/2/13
