We received tuition to passport to Imagination in exchange for this post. All opinions remain 100% my own.

 

With school out, we are always looking for fun things to do. I love for my boys to be able to play, explore and create but I don’t want to spend a fortune either. Fortunately with the Passport to Imagination craft classes at Michaels, you don’t have to.

Passport to Imagination is a summer series of 2 hours crafting classes for kids aged 5-12. There are 3 classes a week and each class is only $2. That is such a steal! You can’t even get all of the supplies for this cost. This summer, Michaels has partnered with 7 of North America’s Best Museums to teach kids about culture through crafting inspired by world-class museum exhibits.

 

I took my boys to the very first class. The Museum was the Field Museum in Chicago Illinois. I’ve actually been to this particular museum so it was fun to see it on the list.

There was a place set up for each child taking the class. They first colored pictures of what they thought fossils were. Then they painted them with water colors to give it a fun feel.

The second craft was a fossil impression they did with molding dough and small toy dinos.

The last craft was the layers of the earth. The teachers taught about the crust, mantle, inner core and outer core. The kids colored their layers, then used glue and glitter to give it a fun effect. Last, they labeled their project.

My kids had so much fun and I’ve got them registered for many more of these classes throughout the summer. You do have to stay and be present with your child while they are at the class.

 

More need to know info:

  • Register for classes online at Michaels or at your local 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.
  • Sessions will be held June 16-August 1 nationwide from 10a-12p.

 

Have your kids ever attended a crafting class?

    I keep seeing this in my emails and want to take the kids. I will have to see if I have a day off because they are all during the day and I work during the day.
