It seems that there are so many birthdays in the summer months; I have several friends with children’s birthdays coming up in July and August. I shared this idea with a handful of them and I thought I would share it with all of you in case you are looking for a great children’s birthday party idea or if you are looking for summer project ideas for church groups, summer camps, scout troops and more.
Throw a Home Depot building party!
Boys and girls of all ages will enjoy these pre-cut wooden project kits. The Home Depot Children’s Party Packs each include 12 Building Kits and 12 Home Depot Kid Size Aprons.
You can choose from:
- Party Pack #1: Birdhouse Kits & Aprons
- Party Pack #2: Toolbox Kits & Aprons
- Party Pack #3: Butterfly House Kits & Aprons
- Party Pack #4: Trivet Kits & Aprons
- Party Pack #5: Bean Bag Toss Kits & Aprons
- Party Pack #6: Bat House Kits & Aprons
UPDATE: The above party packs are no longer available.
All of these projects are simple enough for an 8-year old and they encourage creativity and a real sense of accomplishment. Ideally these kits work great for 7-12 year olds, but can be used for younger children with help from adults. With these party packs, your children will learn to sand, hammer nails, and use a screwdriver while building alongside their friends.
When it’s time to go home, the children can take the project they made themselves home! Each kit includes the wood parts, all necessary hardware, and easy to follow instructions. Parents of younger children will have fun working with them on this big kid project too. Any of these projects can be used as is or finished with paint, stickers, stamps, etc. so you and the kids can get really creative.
