Parents! Put these dates on your calendar! Michaels The Arts + Craft Stores will be doing some fun craft days with activities for the kids to do during the next couple of weeks. Sometimes it is hard to find things to do in order to entertain the kids, especially during the holiday season when it's cold outside and the kids have off of school.

Michaels is doing TWO different series of fun events for the kids!

The 1st is an in-store activity that is absolutely FREE

There is no need to register for these events ahead of time — just arrive at your local Michaels location at the time listed on the event page and be ready to craft! The events are listed below:

November 6: Ornament Event

November 13: Pop-up Christmas Tree Card

November 19: Peppermint Candy Melts Demo

November 20: Christmas Tree Pinecones

You DO NOT need to pre-register for any of the events listed below. All you have to do is show up with the kids and it is FREE. You do not need to bring anything.

Here are the Michaels locations in the Western New York area:

  • 1740 Walden Ave Ste 200, Cheektowaga, NY 14225
  • 1569 Niagara Falls Blvd, Amherst, NY 14228
  • 5055 Transit Rd, Williamsville, NY 14221
  • 3670 McKinley Pkwy Ste 1, Blasdell, NY 14219

The 2nd series that Michels is offering will be in the month of December for 12 days and it will be all ONLINE. Now, of course, you will need some supplies so to make it easy for you Michaels will give you the entire 12-days worth of materials for 40 bucks.

You NEED to register for which classes (or all of them) you want to attend.


The crafts and activities will include holiday craft stick puppets, a mini winter diorama, a mixed media gingerbread house, clay winter animals, and an ornament. Here are all of the details for the classes.
