9 amazing postcards to kids!

Kids rarely receive real mail though the post, and they often love it when they do! So, we invited our users to take part in our challenge, and make a little person’s day with a personalised postcard.

Hundreds and hundreds of you sent postcards all over the globe – from parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, toys, pets, and even plants!

We hand-picked a few of our favourites, and got in touch with the lovely senders to ask them more.

 

Fallon from Durham, UK

We loved Fallon’s collage postcard with these beautiful photos of her sons.

Who was this card from and who was it to?

I sent the card from myself and my husband to my 4-year-old little boy Harry.

Why did you decide to send Harry this card?

He got a lovely end of year school report and he has been a really loving and kind big brother to his 1-year-old brother, Luke.

What was his reaction?

Harry loves getting things through the post so he was really excited and proud of himself. He loved the fact it had pictures of him and Luke on the front.

One thought on “9 amazing postcards to kids!

  1. I took you up on the send to kids challenge. One of the pictures I used was of two kids from each of two families, therefore 2 siblings/4 cousins, together in a king-sized bed on vacation watching a movie, each with a favorite stuffed animal. It’s one of MY favorite pictures & now they each have a copy.
