A.C. Moore Hosts The World’s Largest Silly Bandz Event

I knew they were popular but I didn’t think they were THIS popular! The world’s largest Silly Bandz event is set to be held Thursday July 15, 2010 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. at all 135 A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts stores in the U.S.

Children who attend the event will receive two free Silly Bandz and have the opportunity to trade items from their own collection with other children, make new friends, learn about Silly Bandz storage options and more. I’m not surprised at the location chosen for this event as A.C. Moore was recently named by Parents Magazine as one of the top 10 places for birthday parties!

If you are looking for a free program for your children this summer, A.C. Moore is offering free crafts every Wednesday from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. for children ages 4 and up – no reservation necessary. The program is set to run through August 25.

The dates and schedule for this program are:

* July 14, Lion Brand® & DesignWay™ Striped Yarn Pencil
* July 21, Prism™ Floss Backpack Zipper Pull
* July 28, Mega Brands® Color Blanks
* Aug. 4, Bendaroos™ Under the Sea Creation
