National craft store chain Michaels has teamed with seven leading North American museums to create Passport to Imagination 2014, a low-cost, in-store summer program where kids ages 5-12 can explore culture through crafting.

This year’s theme is Museum Road Trip, and each week will feature a different museum, with projects inspired by the museum and its exhibits. The institutions are the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, the Georgia Aquarium, The Field Museum, The Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), the Denver Art Museum, the Pima Air & Space Museum and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

The programs take place 10 a.m. to noon Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from June 16 through Aug. 2 at all Michaels locations. Each session costs $2 per child.

Projects teach lessons on natural history, technology, marine life, textiles and art.

During the week of June 16, the first 50 participants at each store will receive a free souvenir album. For more information, go to
