Home Depot Kid's Workshops

We've been going to The Home Depot Kid's Workshops for over a year now.  Bear {4.5 years} looks forward to them every month and diligently reminds them that they are coming up.  Here are all of Bear's projects and pins so far:


I'm always on the look-out for free kid's activities.  That's what makes the Kid's Workshops so great.  They're free and offer a great chance for kiddos to have hands-on experiences and bond with the family at the same time.  They teach kids how to follow directions, practice safety skills, and implement their creativity.
 The workshop we went to had a double plant holder.  We don't have much of a green thumb and tend to forget to water plants.  But, no worries!  We found an awesome way to use it for another purpose!  Using the hanging hole on the back, we secured it to the wall to hold our paintbrushes and dry erase markers next to the easel. 
Here are some The Home Depot Kid's Workshop Basics:
  • Free. Free. Free
  • Held the 1st Saturday of each month from 9-12. 
  • Kids get their build it kit, a Home Depot Apron, certificate of achievement, and project pin.

This Saturday's Kid's Workshop at The Home Depot is to build a Lawn Mover Pencil Holder.  Bear is super excited about this because he loves to watch our lawn guys each week.  He's even talked about giving it to them as a thank you gift. 
On Saturday, you can participate in one at your local Home Depot, too! It's free, it's fun, and it provides a great opportunity to bond with your kids.
You can also see more great DIY projects at The Apron Blog.
