Free crafts fill the month of March
I'm not what you'd call crafty. In fact, I'm downright cranky when a school project comes home billed as a "family art project" to decorate a teddy bear or build a parade float. That's when I try to pawn them off on Grandma and her glue gun. She still counts as family, no?
When I got this press release from Michaels craft stores offering a ton of free in-store classes and crafts for adults and kids (to celebrate March as National Craft Month), I knew I had to pass it on to my fellow non-crafty-but-cranky moms. Let them do all the thinking and creating, you just show up with your charges and let them go all Martha Stewart on you.
