This weekend, Sam is attending a boy’s Halloween birthday party at a farm. He’s getting very excited for the event! We have his costume ready to go — he’ll be Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon. After picking out his friend’s gift, he wanted to get the birthday boy a special kids cards.
We headed to Walmart to see their Hallmark Poster Card selection. Sam and I love these cards! They “pop” out from the size of a normal card to a full size poster. Since they are the size of a regular card, you can mail them easily — what a fun item to receive! I’ve actually mailed several to Sam as a surprise for a job well done or when he needed some extra encouragement. What little guy doesn’t love to receive mail, especially something with a favorite character included?
Sam chose the Spiderman card for his friend and proudly wrote his name inside. Next, we went about making the gift wrap even more special.
As a girl, my grandmother taught me how to make pompoms instead of using a bow. I always loved our time together and the wonderful memories we’ve created together. It delights me that I can teach Sam these things and pass down little tidibits from my grandmother to him. These pompoms are especially easy to make and Sam thought they were fantastic. He even suggested we make more in different colors.
- Start with a square of cardboard.
- Wrap the cardboard in yarn.
- Slip the yarn off the cardboard and tie it in the middle.
- Shape it so that it’s even.
Once your pompom is complete, you can easily tie it onto your package, instead of a bow. It’s a great way to finish off a package and make it really shine.
I’m also excited that my kids cards are part of the Hallmark Card Rewards Program. You can earn rewards for the Hallmark cards you purchase year round. For every five cards you buy, you’ll earn a reward! Make sure you check to sign up for Hallmark Rewards.
