Home Depot Workshops for Kids

At the Home Depot

Kids Workshops at the Home Depot are free, "How-to Clinics" geared for children aged 5-12. The workshops are held each Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

Saturday, May 2nd - Wheelbarrow; Saturday, June 6th - Hardware Sorter

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 a 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 associates' aprons, and an achievement pin.
