Workshops are offered the first Saturday of every month at most Home Depot stores. Check with your local store before you plan your visit.
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.
Time: Times vary, check the web site.
We've gone to a number of these over the years and they're lots of fun. Try to go early, though. Depending on the location, lines can get long and Home Depot sometimes runs out of the craft of the day. Workshops are free and we've made some creative projects over the years including a trivet, a firehouse bank, a bird feeder, a mini bean bag toss, a water gage, a bag holder, and a bug catcher.
