Back to School Fun with Kmart! $50 Gift Card Giveaway #BeyondTheBackpack


Let’s face it…it’s about that time. Back to School. Some moms are dreading all the shopping they have to do to have a prepared student, while others are just happy Summer break is over. Kmart wants getting your kiddos back to school to be as easy as possible. This Saturday they are hosting an Nick Jr. Beyond The Back Pack event, which is a fun filled kid-friendly celebration! Games, activities, arts & crafts and a dance party for all ages.

Party like a rock star with Special Guests

Nick Jr. Beyond the Back Pack event will even feature surprise guests Shimmer and Shine and the one and only Dora The Explorer, that’s right Dora will be in the house! This isn’t your average Back To School Blast. Parents can get some shopping down and with Kmart low prices you can knock your back to school list out in no time. From Cool book bags to hand sanitizers Kmart has you covered.

Come hang out with me

As a Chicago mom searching for safe, fun, and free kid events can be tough. So when I find an event worth attending I always share it on my Facebook page and try to bring the boys to keep them busy. We will be at this event for sure. The oldest starts school this week and I need to gather the last items for him, and the youngest is a huge fan of Nick Jr. (he doesn’t like when the characters get too close though, so I will have to keep him a little distance away. LOL) It would amazing to hang out with some of my readers, come out and hang out with us I am pretty sure we are going to have a good time.

  • Event Date: Saturday, August 19 from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Event Location: Kmart Addison – 3443 W. Addison Street, Chicago, IL 60618

A $50 Kmart Gift Card would be pretty cool right now…it would cover some uniforms and a few other items on that long and dramatic school supply list. I would love to bless one of my readers with one. It’s pretty simple to win too, all you have to do is come hang out with us this Saturday and you be entered to win! Plus I heard there will be a free gift with a Nickelodeon purchase while the party is going on from 1-5pm. It’s a Win/Win: your kids will have fun, you may win a gift card, and you get school shopping out the way while hanging out with me. How awesome is that? Hope to see you this Saturday!

  1. If my 14 year old was 4 I would have to make my way there because when she was little she was obsessed with Dora ! Everything in her room had to be Dora or else she wasn’t satisfied!

    1. Lol. Yes my little sister had the little “backpack” and took it every where she went. Now my baby boy enjoys Dora and Diego!

  2. I like that corporations sponsor back to School Events. For some families its a struggle to purchase school items. Glad you are able to offer a gift to one deserving family.

  3. This sounds like so much fun! I wish I could have been in the area! I remember when my daughter was younger she was so obsessed with all things Dora. Now we are revisiting that Nick Jr. love as my baby boy loves Paw Patrol.
