At each stop, kids and adults can climb aboard the truck for hands-on crafting fun with free family craft projects. Visitors can also take pictures with Michaels' interactive social media walls and share photos of their crafts through social media channels using #michaelscrafttour. Other features include TV screens showing Michaels DIY videos.

"We wanted to do something big to celebrate our 40 th birthday with our customers, and the Michaels Craft Tour and truck is a one-of-a-kind craft party on wheels," said Michaels Director of Local Marketing Chris Young. "We've been spreading creativity since the first Michaels store opened in Dallas in 1973, and we look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones as we travel the nation."
