Macaroni Kid Celebrates Back To School 2014


August 14, 2014

By: Jamie Twarogowski, Macaroni Kid Lakewood/Littleton Publisher
Thanks to everyone who made it to our BTS party.  What a fun day!  It was so great to meet all of you, it is always such fun to meet our readers and their kids.

Here's a quick recap of our event.

Our gracious hosts at 5280 Gymnastics put together an obstacle course that was fun for kids of all ages!  They had four of their all star coaches on hand to teach tricks and keep them entertained.  The kids wanted to go back for more!

Then the kids had an early morning Hiphop/Bboy master workshop from Fate Rokz of Allana's Academy of Dance...and he was a big hit!

Sensai Bensen of Kaizen Martial Arts and his team of ninjas came next.  These little ones had no idea what was in store for them here!  My littlest was so excited that she got to learn to use a sword. 

Then off to the Macaroni Kid Home Room where we made CandiQuik S'more Pops, Designed our own stride rite shoes, made tags for our backpacks from the Brother Creative Center, checked out the game "Cow Cents" from SimplyFun, tried on the "Bubble" backpack by MadPax and learned a bit about our vitamins from alternaVites Kids

In the Home Room, Cool Cuts 4 Kids was on hand to do fun pony tails, braids and faux hawks.  Everyone left stylin' for sure!

The bell rang, and it was time for lunch.  Applegate had that covered with Half Time's for everyone!  Then, we couldn't leave without something (else) sweet in our bellies, thanks so much to Gigi's Cupcakes, they had that covered with plenty of mini-cupcakes for everyone.  Even a few gluten-free to make sure nobody was left out. 

Then, GIVEAWAYS Galore!  I can't even list them all!  But everyone left with something fantastic.  From stride rite shoes, to simplyFun games and accesories, CandiQuik melting candy,Brick 4 Kids gift certificate, you name it...loot galore!  (Not even to mention the goodie bags)

We can't forget Sarah and Bri of Sakura Photograhy!  They ran around all day and captured the whole party on film so we can cherish the memories.  (Photos coming soon...)


But, it wouldn't be possible wihtout our loyal readers.  That's why I do what I do.  Keep reading and tell your friends.   

Keep an eye out for future events...as you can see, Macaroni Kid Lakewood/Littleton does it right. 

Now send your kids off to school, and enjoy some "me" time, I know I will.

Have your say
