FREE Home Depot Kids Workshop

Home Depot Kids Workshop will be held this weekend at all Home Depot stores from 9-noon. They will be making a rescue helicopter this week. Workships are designed for children ages 5-12. Go here for more details, but no sign up is necessary.

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.
