The Home Depot Kids Workshops

The Home Depot has workshops for kids once a month, usually the first Saturday of the month. These are great for the family and they are free! Your child will receive an apron just like the employees wear along with a pin for the project they are making and a certificate.

No need to bring anything, Home Depot has everything supplied for you from the pieces to make the project to the tools and sometimes paint.

My kids have been doing this for a few years now and love it. It’s a fun way to get them hands on and to learn how to build things. The workshops usually start in the morning so most of the time we make a morning/day of it eating breakfast out or making fun plans for the rest of the day. Even though they are older now they still need our help reading instructions and holding things for them as they nail pieces together. Home Depot has done a great job with the project kits and making it as easy as they can. Holes are pre-made in the pieces so it makes hammering a little easier.

The kids are always so proud of themselves for what they have made!

Last month they made a Penske truck, but we have made many things from a bug house to a monster truck. Some times they even have projects that go with a movie that is coming out or that go with the season.

To check out what project is next and sign your child up head over to http://www.homedepot.com/workshops/#change_store

You can also check out their DIY workshops with this link.

Some Home Depot stores also have a sign at the front entrance that shows what the upcoming projects are.

Happy building!
