Save $ and get those kids crafty June 14, 2010

If there’s one thing I learned about traveling with kids this weekend (to a destination other than the grandparents’), it is to arrive prepared! My 2yo & 4.5yo made these foam visors yesterday morning as they were getting antsy, waiting for everyone to wake up.

Here are some coupons and deals to help get you prepared with easy, inexpensive crafts for kiddos you’re either traveling with or hosting:

50% OFF at JoAnn Fabric & Craft Stores – 50% off any one regular-priced item with code DFP170 (online; exp 6/19/2010)

50% OFF at Michaels – 50% off any one regular-priced item with printable coupon (Find a Michaels near you; exp 6/19/2010)

$2.95 shipping at Hobby Lobby for any order – no code needed! (online; exp 6/19/2010)

Not sure where to start for easy summer crafts? Hit the Vacation Bible School aisle or category for EASY crafts. They’re not all religiously-themed (the visors we made weren’t), and they’re designed for kids to make easily and quickly! The best part of these visors is that after the kids decorated them, they got to wear them too.

Expires: All of these deals expire 6/19/2010

Thanks to Buxr for the Michaels coupon!

This may be the coolest, most unique Father’s Day gift yet!

They also have custom flip-flops for ladies and kids! For those, get 30% OFF when you use code DISCOUNT30P through June 7, 2010.
