Report Card Celebration. I cannot even believe how far into the school year it is already! We had every intention of hosting a fun back to school party for my little one and his friends…but life got in the way, and about 2/3 of the way through September, I realized it was just not going to happen that way, so I decided to host a Report Card Celebration. However, just after report cards were passed out, my little guy came down with some funk…isn’t that the way it works?
So, off to Walmart I went, to gather some party supplies and some sick kid supplies. I decided to get enough supplies to fill our cabinet and our friends’ cabinets, because ’tis the season. I bought some Advil® Liqui-Gels® and Centrum® Multi-benefit Multi-Gummies for the moms and dads, because who has time to be sick and achy when you have kids? I love Advil® Liqui-Gels®, as their commercials have said for years, “Nothing’s faster on tough pain” (*Among OTC pain relievers.*Use as directed.) I just recently re-started taking a multivitamin and I really like the new Centrum® Multi-benefit Multi-Gummies, they are so advanced, they have more Vitamin D3 than any other men’s or women’s gummy among leading men’s and women’s gummy multivitamins. ^Among leading men’s and women’s gummy multivitamins. I also picked up Children’s Robitussin® because in my house, it’s never just a cough™ *Use as directed. I also bought some Emergen-C® for the parents. Emergen-C® is packed with B vitamins, electrolytes, more vitamin C than 10 oranges^ and other antioxidants†. With over 20 flavors, you have plenty of delicious varieties to choose from.* (^Based on the USDA.gov nutrient database value for a large, raw orange. †Zinc and Manganese* These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

(Everything is on one aisle at my local Walmart, but some Walmart stores have it spread out over a few aisles near the pharmacy.)
I also grabbed some traditional party goodies, gift bags, cupcakes, banners, school supply party favors, cookies, candies, and the most adorable little vintage style school house. One stop shopping at it’s best!
On the morning of our little celebration, I borrowed a friend’s bounce house and set up our (ever so amazing) PVC lemonade stand. I made a little skirt and canopy with some scrap fabric and my hot glue gun. It was a quick project, but the pop of yellow really made the table look so bright and cheery!
Once that was done, I quickly styled the table before our guests arrived. I grabbed some books from our book stacks, and gathered the supplies I purchased. I made a simple banner with colorful tags and felt numbers and strung it on alphabet letter ribbon across the front of the party table. I filled some glass jars with cookies and gum balls. I placed one on a stack of books, and the other was right next to the books. I added cupcakes to a red cake stand, and filled the little vintage style school house with supplies.
I added the extra sick kid supplies to the table (but I left them sealed so the kids wouldn’t try to take them without supervision) While the kiddos were on the bounce house, I had the parents stock up little favor bags with the medicines. The kids were given separate bags to fill with school supplies.
After a little while in the bounce house the kids were ready for snacks. They came in and raided the table and filled up on snacks and juice, and played silly games.
The parents were thrilled to be sent home with worn out kids, and armed with all the supplies necessary to make it through the germy season! The kids had a great time celebrating their fantastic grades and playing together like kids!
