Encouraging a child daily grows their self esteem, shows them how much you love them and can shine a light on a dull, dreary day when they need it most. I don't know about your kids, but mine start dragging about the time they have lunch at school. Which is where Lunchbox Love cards come in handy!
*Disclaimer: I received these cards for free in exchange for my honest review. I was not paid or otherwise compensated. The opinions shared are strictly my own.*
These cards are made by Say Please. They come in cute, little, plastic boxes that make for easy storage. Which is a huge plus for someone who tries to stay organized. As a Mom who has had quite enough of negativity in the world, I am proud to use these to spread positive words one card at a time.
Why positive messages are so important.
Kids might have it easy in our eyes, but that doesn't mean they don't face pressure and stresses in their daily life. They need positive reinforcement to battle the negativity that we adults understand so well. We get so busy, we often just go through the motions and forget to check into what they are facing. These cards give us a conversation opener. Let the kiddos know we are thinking of them. Say Please says it best, "Words are important, especially positive words. Their energy lifts spirits and makes the world a better place the moment they are shared." Just think about the last time you heard something positive shared with you. Made you feel great, even when the day might not have been going so well, right? This is what I feel these cards can accomplish even when I'm not there.
Each card has an encouraging note on the front and trivia on the back. Plus there are 2 cards that are blank for you to write your own personalized messages on. There are 12 cards to a pack. I was sent volume 25. I absolutely love the variety! For kids, teens and loved ones. And the trivia is so much fun too. I think they make for great ways to get kids interested in researching more about topics. Like this one, "During a 24-hour period, the average adult will breathe around 23,000 times." These make great topics for our table discussions. We love talking about things that most people don't think about.
What else do they have to offer?
You can purchase a variety of sizes and options when it comes to the cards. You can also check out the great free printables they offer. For various occasions!
Need a great holiday gift?
I'm not just referring to Christmas gifts, though I would highly suggest it! They have Elf Jokes cards if you like to play with the Elf of the Shelf (something my husband and I would love to do one day)! Let your elf not only pose, but get these cards to print and set up with your Elf. Add humor in a way you never thought to before. They have cards geared for many holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine's Day.
Let us spread some happy moments, one card at a time with the people we love and care about. Think of this as another way to Pay it Forward. When we share joy with one, they are more likely to share it with someone else. Help make the world a happier place, despite the darkness we face daily. It starts with us!
I did! I sent one to work with my husband to surprise him on his lunch break. Just a little moment to make him smile and add some pep to his step while he works. Who knows who else will benefit from his smile tonight?
