We have attended different classes at Michaels craft stores over the years. Their MAKE Break classes are fun for kids, with a variety of different project ideas to choose from.
The most recent Make Break event we attended was “Decorate a Mini Tree” event in November 2018. In previous months, my kids also made slime and stenciled a wood board to hang in their rooms.
Give Christmas decorating the DIY tree-tment!
Buy the Ashland® mini tree, and the supplies to decorate it will be provided.
All Michaels Store locations, 1-3PM local time.
Preregistration is not required, first come, first served. Please arrive in enough time to complete project prior to 3 pm.
After choosing a tree and paying for it, we headed to the Michael’s classroom. We could see that other kids had picked out different trees, and it was fun to see the variety that kids had chosen.
There were a variety of stations set up to make a different decorations. While the main project consisted of little homemade ornaments you could hang on your tree, my daughter went with little white pom-poms and kept her project simple.
The Make Break program at Michaels is a great way to get your kids off their devices and having fun making crafts. We usually go to these events in the winter months when the weather isn’t great and we don’t have much going on (compared to the summer months).
I like how Michaels has a variety of craft supplies available at the Make Break event so that you can really be creative and choose how you want to make your project. We have found that the kids are usually inspired to do some other crafts as well, so we shop for some craft supplies before going home.

This looks like so much fun. My kids would love these crafting activities. I am going to check out my local store, thanks!
These classes sound like a lot of fun! I am going to need to check them out!!!
This would be a fun afternoon crafting and making something. Perfect for family activity
We love the crafting activities at Michaels! I discovered them about a year ago and now my kids count down the days between each one. Those trees turned out super cute!
How fun! We love visiting our local Michaels store. It’s awesome that they have events like this for kids too!
I think this would be a great family time. A cool way of using our imagination and create some awesome crafts.
Looks like a lot of fun!
Cute! My kids have actually participated in a Michael’s Make Break event during one of their summer vacations and really enjoyed themselves. This one would have been so much fun!
I love Michael’s! I’ve bought tons of supplies there, but I’ve never participated in any of their events.
I love that they do these craft classes. My son wants to start taking some in the Summer. He loves DIY stuff!
What a fun crafting event for kids. Would love to take my boys to a class like this. We love crafts and can’t wait to try these ones out.
This is such a cute idea! We used to do classes like this at Home Depot with the kids but they haven’t started up after covid. I’ll have to see if Michael’s is doing them again since I need to make a trip there this week.
I have grandkids who enjoy crafts. I will look at our Michaels for a schedule. Thanks for the heads up.
This sounds like so much fun! I bet my kids would love to participate in this.
Oooo I would love to check this out. I have a Michaels near me. I am going to plan to go to this event soon myself.
Such a lovely craft activity to do with the whole family. Sounds like something I would love to do as well as it looks simple enough
This sounds like so much fun activity. I am sure kids will like to participate in this.
