School is out and the kids are growing restless. Are you looking for a way to entertain them, but keep their creative minds engaged during summer break? Michaels invites you on a summer crafting journey for kids ages 3 & up. Starting 6/13 (June 4th in Canada), Michaels stores will host kids craft sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays from 10am – noon. For only $5 per session (or $12 for 3 sessions when you sign up in store), your children will learn to craft projects inspired by dinosaurs, the solar system and animals from around the world. They’ll get to explore their creativity with craft foam, pom poms, chenille stems and wiggle eyes. The best part? You get to shop uninterrupted, while they craft!

With new themes each week and new crafts each day, your kids will want to come back each day. Don’t miss out on face paint Fridays! Check out each week’s theme below.
