Home Depot Workshops

Home Depot offers a variety of free workshops, what I call make and takes!

On the first Saturday of the month, kids can attend a FREE workshop at The Home Depot. The workshops are designed for kids ages 5-12 and they must be accompanied by an adult. They are called “How-To Clinics” and they stress safety, do-it-yourself skills and they build confidence.

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.

The next two workshops will be held on April 3rd (Butterfly House) and May 1 (Picket Fence Planter).

Home Depot also offers free "Do-It-Herself" workshops as part of the Home Improvement Club. The next “Do-It-Herself” workshop is Thursday, April 15th from 7 – 8:30 pm. The free workshop will feature the Martha Stewart Paint workshop.
