+ This Summer Crafting with the Kids post brought to you by Michaels +
You guys… Summer is almost here!!
No more school!
No more car pool!
No more early mornings!
Well at least for a couple of months anyway. Now the challenge is how to entertain the family during the fun, lazy days of summer. Did you know that Michaels has you covered, they offer free classes in their stores! You can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies.
Just because school will be out for the summer, doesn’t mean that learning stops.
You can sign your kiddos up for a class or you can take a little time for yourself and learn a new skill.
Another great way to explore your creativity is by trying out a craft kit. Michaels has everything from sewing kits to art kits and everything in between.
My daughter Emily and I decided it would be fun to take one of their kits for a test drive.
Emily picked the Craf-Tastic™ Pom Pom Kit, we’re kind of obsessed with pom poms here at our house. This kit was cool because it had the promise of teaching us how to make pom poms really quick. We were intrigued.
I’ve made all kinds of poms, but this was Emily’s first rodeo so this kit was perfect!
The directions were fantastic and Emily who is 11 easily figured everything out without any help from Mom.
We loved how the kit came with EVERYTHING you need for a fun afternoon of crafting and Emily loved that she could do it all on her own.
We decided that it would be fun to add some silly eyes onto the poms to create some little fuzzy friends…
This kit was worth every penny… Emily and I had a ball creating together without all the hassle of trying to pull together all the supplies on our own. Total summer win in my books!
Here are some more fun idea from the other Michaels Makers.
