My Summer Service Ideas post was such a hit, I thought I'd let you know about another awesome idea to keep your kids happy & busy this Summer!
This year Michaels has partnered with 7 of North America’s best museums to create a museum road trip. Each day, kids will experience culture through crafts with projects inspired by world-class museum exhibits. Each week is a particular museum & in my area, they hold classes Monday, Wednesday & Fridays. Each day of the week features a different craft from that museum! I love that they are combining arts & crafts with learning!
Paige and I went this past week & it was so fun! Last week's museum was The Field Musem & we made a dinosaur skeleton.
No joke, Paige has been carrying around this dinosaur skeleton she made in the class for days. She puts it in her blue Michaels bag that we got at the class, takes it everywhere & wants to show everyone we see!
Paige is extra excited about week 4's Perot Museum of Nature and Science where she can make a robot craft... I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty excited about that week, too!
In case you're interested, here's a little bit more information about these fun classes:
· Passport to Imagination is Michaels’ annual in-store summer crafting program for kids ages 5 and up.
· From June 16 to Aug. 1, Michaels stores nationwide will host Passport to Imagination classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Each 2-hour session is just $2.
· Participants can register for classes online here or at their local Michaels store. · The first 50 participants who attend Passport to Imagination at each Michaels location will receive a free portfolio to store and display their work.
· For more information on these classes, click here.
I highly recommend these classes!
It was a lot of fun for Paige & I enjoyed it, too (in our particular store they said Parents didn't have to be in the classroom, just in the store, but I felt like I should help Paige since there were things like cutting & she has trouble with fine motor things). It's a great option when you need a break from the sun & the heat, and a fun activity for your kids & you if you'd like to join in on the fun!
I'd love to know... what kinds of things do you & your kids like to do in the Summer? Tell me in the comments below!
