Birthdays are special celebrations around here! Lots of thought goes into cakes and decorations, but sometimes kids cards are not on the top of my to-do list!
(Confession: I usually have a hard time spending money on something I think is just going to wind up in the trash right away, so we tend to go with a $0.99 Hallmark card from Walmart or a homemade card for the birthday kid.)
But not for this birthday!!
Finding the Perfect Cards for Kids:
Less than two weeks ago, we celebrated my middle daughter’s 8th birthday. Now, there is something about middle children (if you were a middle child or have a middle child, you know what I’m talking about, right?!!)–and although Lydia never complains–I do try to plan some extra special things for her birthday. When I saw these awesome poster cards for kids, I knew she would be excited to get one. For about the cost of a regular poster OR a regular card, I was able to give her both — a card AND a poster! I did have to look for the poster cards pretty carefully, because they were “hidden” in the kids birthday card section at Walmart!
On a side note, if you are a bargain-hunter like me, you should consider signing up for the Hallmark Card Rewards Program. You can earn rewards for the Hallmark cards you buy at Walmart. For every 5 cards you buy, you’ll earn a reward.
The cool thing about these cards is that they are regular card size…but just a lot thicker! They can even be mailed for a little extra postage.
On the inside of the card, I found out what the poster looked like. Since Lydia has been wanting a poster for her door, I thought this would be perfect for her. I really had no idea how big it was going to be!
When we gave her the card, I could tell she really wondered what in the world was in the card since the envelope was so thick! Look at her face….priceless! She just kept unfolding and unfolding and unfolding. Finally, she had to ask her sisters for a little help!
The poster went right up on her bedroom door. It’s huge!! Knowing her personality (she loves to keep everything!), I expect we’ll have some trouble getting rid of this poster. At least for a few years…. 🙂
Happy Birthday, Lydia!!
