Home Depot Fun (Babble)
But it turns out The Home Depot does something kind of cool! Another mom who was in my violin store about a year ago told me about it, but today was the first time I was actually on the ball enough to take advantage of the program.
The first Saturday of every month The Home Depot runs a free workshop for kids. It’s a new project every month, and they supply all the materials and tools and set up a work space with lots of people available to help. My kids each got an apron to put their names on, and when you finish a project they give you a pin about that project to put on your apron. When you collect ten you get a special star pin. We ran into a little girl from Quinn’s class there, and she proudly showed us her collection of more than a dozen pins.
Anyway, I’m always pleased to know about free and interesting activities I can take my kids to, so thought I’d share. If the idea of watching your kid wield a hammer makes you as happy as it makes me, check it out!
