Michael’s Passport to Imagination

Being a SAHM (stay-at-home) I’m always on the hunt for inexpensive/affordable activities to help keep the kiddos busy and me sane during the summer…If you follow me on Facebook (and I hope you do) then you may have seen a post earlier this week mentioning the Passport to Imagination Craft Adventure at Michael’s. I was thrilled when I discovered it…

Michael’s Passport to Imagination is a 7-week crafting class for kiddos. The “2-hour crafting adventure takes place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 am to noon” at your local Michael’s Store. And it’s just $2 per child per session. The crafts are designed for children ages 5 and up. Like I said I was thrilled…it’s affordable, offered several times throughout the week and indoors away from the scorching heat.

Be sure to pick up your Passport to Imagination Guide Book next time you're in Michael's.

I immediately checked out the Travel Itinerary for the Passport Imagination and I couldn’t wait to take my boys! But my youngest is just 3 years old and class was for kids 5 and up. If you have kids then you know that no one can be left out….so I called ahead to my local Michael’s store to see if it would be ok for me to sit in with my youngest to help him with his craft and they said that it would be fine. WOOT! Be advised that I’m not sure if that’s the norm for all locations so be sure to call ahead first if you too have a little one under the age of 5. I decided that today would be a great day to do, it’s week two of Passport Imagination and Michael’s headed to South America. The craft today was something simple and not to girly, perfect for my guys….

My boys had a blast! And the instructors were amazing! I’m so glad that we went on today, we will definitely be going back. Like I mentioned it’s Week 2 of Passport Imagination, so that leaves 5 more weeks of crafting fun. If you still on the hunt for something fun and affordable to do with your kiddos, I highly recommend that you check out Michael’s Passport to Imagination!

Have you checked out Michael’s Passport to Imagination? What summer fun activities do you have planned for the kiddos?

To my dad, who has been an outstanding example of what a real man should be. If it wasn’t for your love, guidance and protection throughout the years I wouldn’t be the woman I am today. Thank you for being my daddy!

And to my hubby, the greatest dad my sons could ever have! Thank you for nurturing and loving our boys. And most of all a man of God and example for them to look up to.

Hey y’all!

I know it’s been a long, long time since I posted anything and I apologize for taking such an abrupt, unannounced hiatus. But y’all know how life can get sometimes…I just wanted to stop in to say that I’m still here and all is well. I’ve missed y’all over the past few weeks!

I’ll be back to posting regularly this week so be on the look out! And if you have any requests or suggestions about what you would like to see here on The Savvy Housewife just let me know.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Positive Thinking Day

Did you know that today was Positive Thinking Day?

Well, it is! A day set aside to celebrate the benefits of positive thinking and we all know how powerful our thoughts can be! “For they become our words, our words become our actions…” y’all know the quote I’m referring too. Below are few of my fav quotes and affirmations I found on Pintrest (oh how I love thee!) Enjoy!

 

 

Happy Positive Thinking Day!
