For some families, summer has just begun. Summer break hit us a few weeks ago, and we’ve already hit that block wall where the kids are asking me what “more” we could do each day. Boredom can set in fast when school is out of session, which is why it’s important to have a plan, and activities to change things up. I was asked to check out Camp Creativity at Michaels, and to write about my experience. I am so glad because without being asked, I wouldn’t have known these classes existed! Talk about a boredom buster!
What is Camp Creativity?
Michaels is allowing kids to craft all summer, well until July 28th, at their Camp Creativity. Unlike the Saturday drop-off craft days, parents can (and need to) attend a craft project at their local Michaels’ store, with their children. Parents can also shop in-store, while the kids do the crafting. Each store has a schedule of projects taking place each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each week seems to have a theme, with different projects each MWF. Classes are just $5 each, or 3 classes for $12. Pricing is per child, so take them all, or change things up and make it a day date with individual kids.
This week, Michaels has an under-the-sea theme going on with a variety of fish-themed crafts. Today, Miss Bea got to create jelly fish out of cupcake liners, a fish cup holder, a canvas painted fish, and more! She had such an amazing time, and all for only $5!
For 90 minutes to 2 hours, kids get to express themselves through the arts, at each Camp Creativity class. I rarely have the time, or give the time to craft with my kids for hours at a time. My kids love crafting, and creating, so I’m so glad Michaels has opened their doors to offer my children this opportunity.
With several weeks remaining, you can schedule your child’s next craft project online or in-store at Michaels. Book your kids for each class, or look at the schedule ahead of time, and pick the classes they will like the most.
