Review and Giveaway: Kid Cards CLOSED

If you are anything like me, you are always trying to show how creative your child is! This is especially true when it comes to the grandparents. I always like to give them presents that have a little bit of my children in them. When the holidays come around I am always in search of the cards that my son can color or personalize in some way.

Well my search has ended, because some smart mommy out there created Kid Cards. These cards come as an activity book where each card stock page can be removed and folded into a greeting card. It offers children an outline for making fun and original cards. This idea was so great that Kid Cards just won a 2009 iParenting Media Excellent Products Award in the Books Category!



They have a different volumes according to age. Each volume comes with a variety of cards, including Birthday, Get Well, and Thank You. Kid Cards were nice enough to send over Volume 2 for Wyatt to try. Here he is with his Thank You card that he created for his Pappy and Nana.
Wyatt really enjoyed making his card and immediately started planning who the next one would be for. I think this is a great way to allow your child to share their talents with others.

Thanks to Kid Cards, one lucky winner can receive either Volume 1, 2, or the Christmas Edition by following the rules below! They have also offered my readers a great coupon code.

I learned that Since its inception in 1985, Kids Cards has funded such programs as: camperships for burn victims among many other programs that benefit the residents in their community.

olume 2 was created when her daughter begin to use more of her own personal art work, so volume 2 only consist of a frame to let the kids have the ability to draw more. Thanks for the giveaway
