If you’re looking for something to do with the kids this weekend a fun indoor option is the monthly Home Depot Kids workshop. These events, which take place on the first Saturday of every month at all Home Depot locations, are completely free and designed for children ages 5 – 12.
Our family stumbled upon one of these events by accident on a Saturday morning trip to Home Depot. We saw a group of kids hard at work hammering together wooden bird feeders. To our kids it looked way more interesting than roaming the aisles looking for lawn care items and light-bulbs. So they joined the fun and diligently worked on their projects until they each had a bird feeder to take home. Those bird feeders still proudly hang from trees in our yard, and the kids still get excited every time a bird stops by for a snack.
The Home Depot projects are always different and often seasonal. Over the past few months we’ve built trucks, airplanes, a football toss game, a wooden tic-tac-toe board, a ship and more. Most of them are little wooden kits that come with instructions and all the pieces needed including nails, stickers or other. The store provides any other supplies needed to complete the project such as wood glue or hammers.
