When the kids are bored (or you!), do you tend to head to the movies or go shopping? Buy expensive video games and DVDs to entertain the kids? Why not get more creative with your family time and shop at JoAnn's or Michaels for fun kits and projects! A much better way to spend time than with video games.
Michael's and JoAnn's are craft stores, and the ads run Sunday through Saturday. The ad items that are listed below are through January 23rd. These are just some of the best deals out of their ad. Don't forget to watch for clearance items, as always!

Also, if you are a teacher, just show your ID and you will save an extra 15% every time you shop. Lastly, this week only they have 50% off of all clearance fabrics.
