Your Kids Can Make Clay Slime At This Free Event At Michaels

Are you looking for something to do with all these chilly winter weekends? Now that the temperatures are dropping in many parts of the country, consider heading to Michaels on Saturday, Jan. 13 for a fun (and free!) event for the kids.

From 1 to 3 p.m., your kids can make their own clay slime at Michaels for free.

They’ll get to mix clear Elmer’s “slime” and Crayola model magic clay together to make “moldable, shapeable clay slime,” according to Michaels.

This event offered by Michaels is called “Make Break,” but there are lots of other opportunities for your children to exercise their creativity.

Every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon, participating Michaels locations offer a kids club activity for just $2 for kids ages 3 and up.

For example, this Saturday’s craft is a cute snowman canvas.


There are also crafting activities for adults, like making a layered necklace or a personalized sign! Those workshops cost a little more, though, up to $50.


You can learn more about these and other activities at Michaels on their website.

If you can’t make it to the event on Jan. 13, the Elmer’s website has tons of fun recipes and kits for making all sorts of different kinds of slime!
