Create Back to School Memories with Hallmark


This post is sponsored by Hallmark. All thoughts are my own.

The beginning of the school year is an exciting time for our family. Both children are experiencing their first year at school. Andrew will be going off to Kindergarten and Andrea will be entering the early childhood preschool.

I wanted to commemorate this special time with photographs, and wanted to do this in a memorable way. I received the Hallmark Pics ‘n’ Props School Days Activity Kit for review and knew this would be the perfect addition to the memories that my children were about to create.

The kit includes:

  • Chalkboard with chalk
  • Journaling Cards
  • Faux Chalk Inserts
  • Photo Album

I’ve seen the Pics ‘n’ Props School Days Activity Kit being used on Pinterest and was so amazed at the art ability of those photographers! Each faux chalk insert is crafted for every year of school, from Preschool through Graduation. But who knew that those pictures I saw on Pinterest were not real chalk designs! Simply slide the insert onto the chalkboard and you have an instant premade chalkboard to use in your “First Day of School” photographs.

I love how realistic these chalkboards are, everyone has been asking me how they were made. The photo album is a perfect addition to the Pics ‘n’ Props School Days Activity Kit and will help keep all of our memories documented in a special way.

Going back to school can be stressful for the kids, meeting new teachers, new kids, learning the hallways and routines. Whether it’s Kindergarten or their Senior year, sometimes a simple “You can do it!” helps remind kids that you’re rooting for them, no matter what.

Hallmark’s collection of SO SO Happy Greetings, Kids Encouragement Greetings and Back to School Greetings are the perfect “pick me up” that you can give your children. Maybe an addition to their lunchbox, or the morning before a test, take the next step up from notes on a napkin and share one of these fun greeting cards with your kids.
