Home Depot Kids Workshop

Friday, January 6, 2017

On the first Saturday of every month, Home Depot offers a free Kids Workshop where your child can build something from a supplied kit. We learned about this amazing event from my parents next door neighbors. During Halloween last year, their son went as a Home Depot worker complete with orange vest and baseball hat. And on the vest were pins of all the kits he had completed over several months of participating. McKinley immediately wanted a vest of his very own.

McKinley and Joel attended that November's workshop and they made an airplane. I didn't go because I thought it would be a fun father/son outing, but I also felt like I was missing out. Needless to say, I've attended ever since. The workshops teach kids how to use tools, namely a hammer, but they also get to paint their completed projects from time to time. Some kits come with stickers. But it's all about using your hands and being creative. And the projects are really cool. He's made a fire engine, a dry erase board, a skateboard pencil box, a candy dish, and a helicopter.

What I also love about the workshops is that you see kids of all ages and genders! Girls are there just as often as boys and it's so refreshing to see! It's a super fun, Saturday morning family activity.

Look at that concentration!

After his first visit, he needed his own pair of safety glasses. They also offer them for fee.

Is it a picture frame?

No, a dry erase board that has seen its fair share of fabulous drawings!

And from time to time there is the need to wear your hard hat.....

We are heading to Home Depot tomorrow! It's the first Saturday of January and they are creating their very own crate tool box. I can't wait to see the finished product. You should check it out. Call your local Home Depot or check out their Kids Workshop here. The time range is generally 9:00-12:00. 

If you go, share with us your experience. I can't say enough about it.
