Every summer, my sister's children come to Texas to spend the summer w/ their grandparents. With the Texas heat, indoor activities need to be planned. And Playstation, MTV, and Internet don't count!\r
At Michaels, I found a wide array of very simple yet involving home crafts, DIY projects, and other many creative things. The variety was impressive. Many well-known brands as well as niche' offerings. There seemed to be something for everyone. Especially attractive was the section for beginners, pretty much for any task (painting, stenciling, clay/pottery, chalk/pencil drawing, etc'...).\r
A very enthusiastic recommendation for Michaels Arts & Crafts, not just for yourself, but for your kids! Remember to subscribe to the sales weekly flyer, often has coupons for special deals!
PROS: Unlimited amount of materials and variety, great prices also.
CONS: Staff wasn't all that knowledgable regards to certain product applications.
