The way to a child's heart these days is through slime, and no one knows this better than the good people at Michaels, the epic craft emporium. In honor of Valentine's day, Michaels on Westnedge in Portage is hosting a Slime Your Heart Out event on February 9th from 1pm to 3pm. Michaels will supply all the slimy little mix-ins like glitter and confetti for your child to create their own unique Valentine's slime. This event is totally free to join, and promises that you and your child will enjoy a very ooey gooey Valen-slime's Day.

Michaels has a lot of great craft classes for all ages, and it's certainly a great way to spend a rainy day. Visit their website, go to the Events Calendar, and find a class you're interested in. Click on "Sign Up" and enter your zip code to see if the class is being held locally. Your inner jewelry designer, knitter, or papier mache maven thanks you.
