Kids Workshops at The Home Depot

From the site:

Kids workshops are FREE how-to clinics designed for children ages 5-12.  The workshops are offered the first Saturday of each month between 9:00Am and noon at all The Home Depot stores.

The Home Depot’s kids workshops offer useful projects including the creation of toolboxes, fire trucks, and mail organizers as well as more educational projects, such as window birdhouse, bughouse or Declaration of Independence frame kit.

The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment.  Additionally, this fun time allows for quality one-on-one time between adults and children.  In addition to the newly constructed project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot’s associates’ apron and an achievement pin. 

*NOTE: No registration is required to attend the workshop.
