If two of your favorite things are crafting and spending time with your kids, Michaels is the place to be this December. Beginning Dec. 1, 2022, at 3 p.m. ET, families can virtually attend Michaels Winter Workshop Classes to create family-friendly projects for the holiday season. Better yet? These holiday craft classes are free.

However, you’ll need to purchase the supplies — more on that below. You can always download The Krazy Coupon Lady app to get a deal on the necessary supplies before your craft class.


How to Attend These Free Holiday Craft Classes

To participate in the Winter Workshop Classes, kids must be at least 6 years old and have their parents register prior to the class. The free holiday craft classes are hosted virtually online, and you’ll receive a reminder 24 hours prior to each class you registered for. If for any reason you can’t attend the class live, they are recorded and can be accessed 24 – 48 hours after the event.

Once registered, download the instructions and project templates ahead of time to help guide your kids through the projects easily along with the class.

View a list of necessary project supplies online and purchase everything prior to the class. Michaels does offer a Winter Workshop Bundle ($39.99) for all 12 classes if that’s most convenient for you. The supplies for each class range from $2.99 to $24.99, but some can be reused for multiple classes, and you can always follow our tips to save more at Michaels stores.

Since most of the necessities are general craft supplies, check your cupboards to make sure you don’t already have some on hand, or hit the dollar store to stock up.
