Back-to-School with Hallmark!



Hallmark - Pics 'N' Props

It’s Back-to-School time for us this month and at the beginning of each year I like to take photos of my son. We usually make our own sign saying which grade he is starting but this time we decided to try the Hallmark’s Pics ‘n’ Props. The School Days Pics ‘n’ Props kit comes with the coolest chalkboard and there are  inserts for preschool through 12th grade. My son loved the chalkboard sign and is very proud to show he is in 6th grade this year! The Kit also comes with a memory book (5×7 photo album) and Journaling Cards to document your child’s first-day-of-school thoughts.  This is just the best way to start a new school year! I love that you can take a photo each year and put it in the 5×7 photo album.

I also received a collection of “everyday” greeting cards from our friends at Hallmark and I can’t say this enough…they really do have the best cards!

  1. My son says he doesn’t get the question? 🙂 After some prodding he said June because that is before summer starts.

  2. He said his favorite time is Christmas, because it’s cold, and he likes cold

  3. June – because it’s the last week or two of school, when 1)you make sure to have an extra-good time with friends you won’t see over the summer, and 2)you’re looking forward to the summer break, when you’ll have more good times to spend with summer-camp friends, and with family at the beach!

  4. She said the beginning of the year because you get to see your old friends again.

  5. Denise Taylor-Dennis says

    My son had been in preschool year round before starting TK this year. In preschool he enjoyed Christmastime for all the singing and getting ready for the Christmas program.
