Entertain your kids’ imagination this summer at Michaels
By Aimee Heckel
If you’re looking for a way to entertain your kids this summer, without blowing a ton of cash, let them explore their imagination and learn something new at Michaels stores.
On June 16, Michaels is launching a Passport to Imagination program, a low-cost summer program in the store to help kids ages 5 through 12 explore other cultures through crafts.
Every week, Michaels will feature a different museum and guide kids through projects inspired by that museum. For example, kids will learn about the Georgie Aquarium, the Museum of Nature and Science in Perot, the Museum at Fashion Institute Technology, an air and space museum and more. Parents can buy special themed kits to bring home to complement the projects every week, too.
It’s a great way to introduce kids to new cultures and topics, even when the museums are located across the country. It’s less expensive, too. Classes only cost $2 for two hours.
Money-saving tip: During the first week, the first 50 participants in each store will get a free album.
Michaels offers the Passport to Imagination program every year, centered around a different educational and creative theme.
