Here’s a great activity you can share with your kids… and it’s free!
On the first Saturday of each month, Home Depot’s FREE Kids Workshops offer fun and useful projects like building toolboxes, fire trucks and mail organizers, birdhouses, Mother’s Day gifts, or any number of other cool projects.
The workshops are great for 5- to 12-year-olds, and they teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety and at the same time they help to instill a sense of accomplishment. If your little builder is under 5, that’s fine, too, but you’ll need to provide a little more supervision. We see parents getting into the fun, too, no matter the age of the participants. The workshops create quality, one-on-one fun time between you and your children or nieces, nephews. The workshops are great for scouts troops, neighborhood organizations and Sunday school classes as well!
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.
The Home Depot’s Kids Workshops are FREE and are held on the first Saturday of every month at every Home Depot store. They start at 9:00 am, and last until about noon. Please register ahead of time online to make sure we have enough kits and aprons for the participants. However, registration is not mandatory. We’re happy to make a space at the work table for anyone who shows up, so don’t be shy!
Go to our Home Depot Workshops page online to register and for more information, including a description of what project is coming up. Just click on the Kids Workshop tab. That’s also the place for information and registration for our monthly Do-It-Herself Workshops and our weekly Do-It-Yourself Workshops.
Can’t get to the workshop? Many of the projects we do in the Kids Workshops are available in our online Woodshop Projects Department.
