August at Learning Express Includes a Visit from Anna & Elsa
Learning Express of Ann Arbor released their August calendar a couple of days ago and they have some great events to wrap up summer. The events are held at the Learning Express stores in Ann Arbor, Maumee, and Sylvania.
The highlight of the month, is a visit by Elsa and Anna from Frozen. They will be at the Ann Arbor location on Sunday, August 24 from noon-2p. If you can’t make that date, consider visiting with the princesses at the Sylvania store on Saturday, August 16 (11a-1p) or the Maumee store on Sunday, August 17 (noon-2p).
Learning Express continues their Thursday Rainbow Loom classes. Classes are free, but you do need to register in advance (and bring your own supplies).
They are having several Back to School events in August. They Back to School Events start on Saturday, August 2 with a Pencil Box and Pencil Grip craft at 11a and 2p. The event costs $4 and you need to RSVP. Tween Scene is on Thursday, August 7 from 6-7:30p. There will be glitter tattoos, jean tattoos, BOPO Nail Polish, and more. They will be offering 20% off Locker Lookz during the event only.
