Back to School Encouragement Giveaway

I remember being so excited and anxious on back to school eve, I often felt a little nauseous. It was kind of like Christmas, but with a lot more people and no gifts. I’m not sure my kiddos get anxious like I do, but I know they get excited. I don’t have a hard time getting them up on time for school. There’s a thrill that comes with the first day of school. If your children are excited, anxious or even dreading the new school year; it’s important for us as parents to listen, support and encourage them.

Hallmark was one of the sponsors at this year’s evo conference. Their suite was so much fun they had two walls of cards for us to send to our children, with messages ranging from ‘I love you’ to ‘great job’ to ‘let’s have fun together’. I liked finding the card that fit each child’s personality. Hallmark went out of their way to create a family friendly environment and helped us all to look forward to spending time with our families after our playtime was over!


I’m excited to share some of that fun with you! Hallmark has been kind enough to offer the following to one my lucky, US resident readers:

Entering is simple; leave a comment with your favorite way to let your children know how special they are to you. Contest ends Saturday, August 25 at midnight. The winner will be announced on Monday.

I have not been compensated for this post. Hallmark is providing the prize and all opinions are my own.

    I love spending one on one time everyday with each child. It seems like the more vocal children can over-talk the more quiet ones so I love spending time with each one to listen to everything they have to say & let them know what they have to say is IMPORTANT to me!
    & I love the lunch idea! I’m going to start that! Thanks Amber!

    I love sneaking in a surprise saying in their lunch boxes. Usually at that point during the day, they need a little pick me up. Even just a simple ‘remember I love you’ is really encouraging to them and it let’s them know how special they are:)
