MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!

MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Michael's Passport to Imagination

Are your kids crafty? Do they want to be? I have just the place for you to check out! We have been attending Michael's Passport to Imagination summer program and LOVING IT! Not only is it a great summer event but the prices can't be beat. The crafts are usually FREE. On occasion we have had to pay $1 for an item (like a terracotta pot) needed to make a project.

The Fun Tester has had a great time "traveling" to countries like Mexico, Kenya and Thailand and learning about the countries and making crafts. Each week one of the crafts is a pin that the kids can wear! We made this activity vest for him to put them on. And we have been marking our world map (which I laminated) so we can see where we have been.

Today we are heading to Russia and will be making this super cute Pom Pom Bear.....

There is still plenty of time to join in on the fun! The event is on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 1-4pm. Make sure you call your Michael's store to confirm they are holding the event. No one want to show up and have disappointed kids. You can find your local Michael's with their store finder.

Can't make it to the events? Fear not! Michael's Passport to Imagination website not only shows you all the crafts but gives you material lists, templates, and instructions to do them all! How awesome is that!

Go get crafty people!
