We make a pretty big deal about birthdays around here. My children's cousins travel four hours each way to be at the party and to help us celebrate. I think spending time with their cousins is the part of their birthday celebration that my son and daughter look forward to the most! Since I want it to be a special day, I pay attention to every detail right down to the greeting card. Luckily, Walmart has a huge selection of Hallmark kids cards perfect for every party. At my son's recent sixth birthday party, we had a great time with one of the poster cards for kids and even turned it into a great keepsake to remember the fun.
The cards look like a regular greeting card but unfold to reveal a full size poster. We chose a Batman card with our birthday superhero in mind.
All of his cousins signed the card for my son.
After the party, we chose a favorite snapshot of him. We had it printed and mounted it behind the card to complete the poster. It now hangs on his bedroom wall and is a great souvenir of his sixth birthday party. The signatures remind him of the fun he had with his cousins and how they came to celebrate the day he was born.
Before you shop for your own poster cards, be sure to sign 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.
