Kids Workshop at Home Depot

A few months ago, Brad started bringing the boys to Home Depot's Kids Workshops. We have been so impressed with this award-winning program and our boys love their projects that I decided to blog about it.

If you've never had a chance to attend one, you should give it a try!!

The FREE kids workshops are held in all Home Depot stores the 1st Saturday of every month, between 9-12 noon.

Every child gets to use real tools and materials to prepare the wooden project of the day. All the projects are very useful items, such as Tools Sorter Box, Message Board, Window Birdhouse, Fireftruck Toy, Leaf Press Box, etc.

Our boys have had a chance to learn how to safely use real tools. Participants receive an orange apron to take home and bring every time to the workshops. They also receive a pin for each completed project (that they can put on the apron), stickers and a certificate.

You can check out what their upcoming projects will be at the Home Depot's website.

Here's some shots of the boys making a picnic caddy last July.
