Things to do: Home Depot Kid's Workshop

Home Depot has moved up to be one of my favorite stores lately, and its all because of the Kid's Workshop they do.

This is a FREE workshop where kids go and build things. They do this the first Saturday of every month, so the next one will be on March 7th, and it runs from 9am-12 noon. The suggested age is for kids 5-12 but my son is 3 and we helped him a little but he had a great time.


We went to the February one and made this trinket box.


They provide all the supplies, you provide the kid! You will need to stay with your child because they may need assistance if they are younger, but they are simple...and very cool....building projects. We made this trinket box with our son. They also get a Home Depot orange tool apron to wear with their name on it and when they finish, they get a little tie tack pin with the project picture on it. The next month they come back, they are supposed to wear their apron again and they will get another tie tack pin with the new project picture on it to show that they have finished another workshop. They also get certificates for finishing the projects. It is so great!

All the kids I saw there were having a great time and feeling so proud to wear their little tool apron.

Next month they are making this little raceway for cars.

I think this would be fun for girls or boys, so I hope you will try out one of these workshops.

Forgot to say that Lowes now does something too, but you have to look it up online and pre-register for it.
