My kids love to do arts and crafts and I love any reason to get us all out of the house. Especially if it means making a mess somewhere else! For a mere $2 a kid, your kid can create their very own masterpiece at Michaels Craft stores. They have a special classroom inside the store specifically for this purpose. Each Saturday from 10am – Noon, Michaels opens their doors and welcomes kids in for a new craft every week.
We visited them this past week to make a Valentine’s Day photo frame. The kids were thrilled to paint the frame themselves and then decorate it with hearts until their “heart’s” content. The staff were incredibly nice, helping to keep the kids clean and motivated. They saw our little picasos work for what it truly was – a masterpiece!
We will definitely check them out again! To give you an idea of what other crafts are coming down the line, looks like some string art, a puzzle piece necklace, tissue paper frame and a personalized door hanger. I took a few mins to wander the store. It’s really impressive how large their children’s craft area is. Also a great place to get birthday gifts, party supplies, favors and such. They even do adult classes and birthday parties for kids.
