Michaels MAKEbreak classes
Michaels’ popular Sunday Makebreak craft events offer a fun outlet for kids (and adults!) of all ages. Even better, there’s no need to register or sign-up — just head to the craft store’s project room to get started.
The weekly event takes place on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (local time) at participating locations. The kits are available while supplies last.
Here’s the current schedule:
September 3– Fall Painted Rocks
September 10– Fall Pom-Pom Trees
September 17– Watercolor Leaf Art
September 24– Pumpkin Fest
October 1– Halloween Pumpkin Fest
October 8– Friendship Bracelets
October 22– Witch Silhouette Painting

MAKEbreak events may require purchase of supplies, and prices vary with each project. Check different locations as some stores have no events, but a neighboring store might have them scheduled. This is a current upcoming events calendar.
