There’s a hidden free event right in your neighborhood you probably don’t even know about. That’s right. I said FREE. On the first Saturday of every month, your local Home Depot sponsors a free workshop for your kiddos, ages 5-12.
I had heard about these workshops but never took advantage of them ’til now. I sent my husband and 6-year-old off to the hardware store to let them try their hand at building this month’s project… a bird feeder. They had such an awesome time they stayed to make a second bird feeder for Vman’s younger brother. I call that a ringing endorsement.
Home Depot provided all of the materials needed, including the paint and brushes! So when he came home, Vman had a finished project. In addition, Home Depot gave him an adorable kid-sized workshop apron that I know will get some use around the house. I see some serious crafts and painting in our future!
To sign up for the next workshop, just follow this link: Free Kid Workshops.
