Snail mail is pretty awesome, we can all agree on that. Right? Everyone loves the feeling of getting an envelope in the mail with their name on it (of the non-bill variety). The excitement is real. Well, why not share this glorious ritual with the kids in our lives? There are about a million reasons to send a card to someone (here are 67 reasons to get you started) and sending greeting cards for kids is no exception.
They’re people too, you know.
Greeting cards for kids
Sending cards to kids can be a great way to introduce them to the lifelong habit of writing proper thank you cards and can even play a role in helping kids practice to read (and write)!
We’ve come up with some cards from Postable’s collection that you can send to the kids in your life!
Kids Birthday Cards
Everyone should feel extra special on their birthdays. Especially kids. While adults may welcome each birthday a little less enthusiastically as time goes by, kids will count the days until they get to be a whole year older.
It’s kind of a big deal, so why not treat it as such?
If for no other occasion than the birthday, a kid should know how special it feels to get snail mail. Birthday cards are a must (a present definitely wouldn’t hurt either). Check out these delightful birthday greeting cards for kids and see for yourself how adorable they are (we know some adults who wouldn’t mind getting some of these in the mail either).

Kid’s Congratulations Cards
When we do something awesome we get congratulated. Shouldn’t the same be true for the kids in our lives? Definitely.

Make sure the little ones in your life know that they’re exceptionally smart when they succeed on an assignment. Or you know, any other time at all whatsoever. It’s nice to get reminded that someone thinks we’re smart, especially when we’re itty bitty people.

Another pun-masterpiece from A Jar of Pickles. Sometimes you don’t need any other reason to congratulate someone other than for being awesome or in this case Dino-mite ;).

This bright congratulations card is perfect for kids. It’s fun and colorful and will get just about anyone excited about doing something awesome.
