Looking for free activities for kids? Plan your schedules accordingly so you can attend this free event with your child. Surprisingly there any many families that aren’t aware of this awesome fun-filled activity/event that is free for children!!
Take your children to Home Depot the first Saturday of every month. “The Kids Workshop,” at Home Depot allows you to complete a project for free with your child that they can take home. According to Home Depots website, ” Once the project is complete, your child can paint their project to personalize it. All kids get to keep their project, receive a FREE certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron, and a commemorative pin while supplies last.” You’ll want to bring your child’s Home Depot workshop apron each time they go. Having the apron is nice to protect your child’s shirt from paint. Another benefit of having the apron, is your child can add their commemorative pin to their apron when they’ve finished the project. Some children have aprons that are filled with pins showing off all the projects they have completed.
Home Depot’s kids workshop last month was to build a rain gauge. We all thought at first it looked most like a bird feeder. E insisted we fill the rain gauge up with bird feed. We hung it up out of our front window and we actually got a visitor! It was neat to see a bird using it!
Free activities for kids doesn’t get much better then this!
What a great activity Home Depot has for the community to do with your child! With your help your child gets a feel of how to use different tools, such as a hammer, screw driver and paintbrush. They also learn sequencing, step-by-step directions on how to complete the project with your assistance. Even if you’re not a handy person like myself the directions are easy enough to follow that you can figure it out too. The projects usually take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.
Another benefit about this free experience for your family is that your children can take home something they feel proud of. The Kids Workshop makes for special bonding time between you and your child. Lastly, it’s something fun to do with your child on a Saturday morning.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. I’d love to see some pictures of you and your kiddo building Home Depot’s latest project. Make sure to call before you go so you can be sure they have the kids workshop available at your local Home Depot. Thank you Home Depot for having free activities for kids in our community!
