It's the end of the school and the start of summer. If you are looking for low cost ways to keep kids entertained and indoors in this hot Texas heat then consider Passport to Imagination. This summer program put on by Michaels stores is a seven week program inviting kids to explore different cultures through crafts. Seven of the the top museums in North America will be inspiring these in-store crafts projects on the Passport to Imagination program.

Dallas' very own Perot Museum of Nature and Science will provide the inspiration for week #4. For three different days kids can create their own constellation, a zeotrope, or their very own robot. The other museums inspiring in store crafts during the week include: The Field Museum in Chicago, The Georgia Aquarium, Pima Air and Space Museum, The Denver Art Museum, The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Taking place from June 16 through August 2, all in store activities are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon. Each two-hour session is just $2 per child at all U.S. Michaels locations.
