FREE Kids workshops at Home Depot 3/7/09

Thanks to my friend, Lori, I found out about the Home Depot Kid’s Workshops that are FREE workshops available the first Saturday of each month from 9-noon for kids age 5-12 (although she says there are younger kids that go to the one near her.)

The Home Depot’s Kids Workshops offer useful projects including the creation of toolboxes, fire trucks and mail organizers, as well as more educational projects, such as a window birdhouse, bughouse or Declaration of Independence frame kit.

The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, this fun time allows for quality one-on-one time between adults and children.

In addition to the newly constructed project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot associates’ aprons, and an achievement pin. Check out what your child could make this weekend, isn’t it cool???? More info here.

  1. We love the home depot projects. Ours also does one on the third Saturday. There is no cutting involved and we even take our three year old! I believe that Lowe’s has something like that too, but their class registration is required, if I am not mistaken.
    One word to the wise, the projects can mount up pretty quickly. Sometimes you need to choose wisely.

    I’d like to say my daughters used to go to these workshops when they were younger. We’d make it a family affair with my husband and I taking the girls. They loved it! We would preregister for the next months class and they would build their project using hammers and simple tools along with the free kit provided. They even each got a free orange arpon to wear and bring to each class. Great free family fun! Highly recommended! Cindy J

  3. My kids do this all the time with their grand parents and they just love it!
