I just had to write about this today! The first Saturday of the month Home Depot hosts a "Kids Workshop". Since last Saturday was the first in April, we decided to go to see what the project was. We were able to make lightening bug catchers for FREE. (It can catch any bug but the only bug we will be catching will be that of the lightening kind) When we arrived they had a kit for each child. There was a table set up with buckets for each person to sit on. All of the tools were provided, and there were plenty to go around, so you didn't have to wait a long time before using any of them. Each 'builder" also received a child's sized apron, t-shirt, measuring tape, balloon, sticker, and badge!
It was wonderful to see parents working with children. There aren't enough community events like this anymore. The kids each learned how to hammer, use wood glue, and use a screw driver. Not to mention that our particular Home Depot also had hot dogs, cookies and water for everyone. The Kids workshop runs from 9 am-12 pm and you can come anytime during the block to make your project. It is designed for children ages 5-12. My daughter is 2 and a half and with my help, she did just fine. What an excellent program!
