|Kids create Mom's favorite handcrafted treasures |
for Mother's Day!
Area Michael's stores (3655 Washtenaw Ave., Ann Arbor and 41904 Ford Rd., Canton) have several Make-It Take-It events planned where kids can create a customized Mother's Day gift. That means no mess in the home and a semi-surprise for mom so long as dad take the kids to participate. All of their events are "while supplies last" events. Check out the Michael's Facebook page Mother's Day project video to see what's in store; The video has inspired me to take the kids to the store next week... I love the t-shirt necklace!
- April 30: 10:00 a.m. - noon with the purchase of a T-shirt or apron, kids can create Mom a one-of-a-kind wearable. This is geared for ages 3 and up.
- May 1: 1:00-3:00 p.m. Teens ages 14 and up can stop by to make Mom handcrafted jewelry by watching one of two in-store demos.
- May 3: 6:00-8:00 p.m. purchase a flower and create a special Mother's Day card. This is geared for ages 3 and up.
Also on May 7, kids ages 5-12, can head to the local Home Depot (3300 Carpenter Rd., Ypsilanti or 45900 Michigan Ave., Canton) to make Mom a special Kids Workshop Tulip Planter from 9:00 a.m. - noon. - of course they'll have to head home to paint it, but i am certain Dad can guide them through this part of the process!
Mom will be grateful for the break as well as appreciative of the wonderful, thoughtful Mother's Day gifts designed especially for her!
