Professionals give them out like candy. Moms trade them. Why shouldn’t kids have some too?!
When my daughter went to camp, I sent her with Camp “Contact Me” cards (see that post here) so that she could share her address and other info with her new friends. She loved them. She asked for more when she got home. (These were really fun because I packaged them up as a surprise for my daughter and some other girls we knew going to camp.)
When school started this fall, my kids were constantly asking me to write down our phone number on a scratch piece of paper so that they could give it to a friend–particularly my first grader (hence, the super basic font). I thought about it and decided to save myself the hand-ache by revising the Camp “Contact Me” cards to just plain old “Kid Cards”. I thought hard about what I wanted to include on the cards as I wanted to be conscientious that the cards might get lost and we may not want everyone having all of our family’s contact information.
I wish my kids had these for their friends as well. Put them all on a little ring and viola! A kid Rolodex! For now, we’ll start with their cards. And let me tell you, they are more than excited to take them to school to share with their friends.
