Have you ever been sitting home during the weekend with your family, and thought, “There has got to be something that we can do as a family, and let the kids try something new.” While it may take a bit of convincing with some kids, there are many that truly love to work with their hands, and make something of their very own, something they can be proud of. You can find activities just like this for your kids and your family when you hit up one of Home Depot’s Workshop classes that they offer. We are going to give you the inside scoop on what these workshops entail, and the types of classes you can find at your local Home Depot. Let’s get started.
1. What Does A Workshop Include?
Typically, the free kid’s workshop will take place once each month at your local Home Depot location. There, your kids will get a free workshop kit that they will get to make and take home with them when they are finished, as well as a kid size orange Home Depot apron, just like you will see in the store. The types of projects that your kids make can range from a variety of different wood working workshops, including picture frames, wooden cars and trucks, birdhouses, planters, organizers, and a bunch of seasonal projects as well for holidays that come up throughout the year. You should find more information about the specific workshop that you want to attend as the date gets closer. And don’t worry! No heavy machinery will be used near the children, so they won’t get hurt in any way. Just a fun time learning how to make and create their own masterpieces.
2. Where Do You Sign Up?
Signing up to attend one of the workshops is super easy. You’ll just want to head to Home Depot’s website where you will find a link that shows you what workshops are offered weekly. From there, you will want to click on the kids workshops to see what is being offered for that specific month that you wish to attend. It is pretty important to do the registration for the event as soon as you decide you want to do it, as spots can fill up pretty quickly. Just remember that the majority of these workshops are typically directed at kids from the age of 5 to 12, so you won’t want to bring your toddler to this event unfortunately.
3. What About The Parents?
Don’t worry, everybody. For the moms and dads out there that think it looks like fun to make those little projects just like your children are at these workshops, Home Depot also offers weekly workshops for adults who would like to learn something new in the realm of home improvement. Again, you will just head to their website to see what workshops are going to be held each month, and you can register to attend the ones that sound the most exciting and interesting to you. These workshops also aren’t limited to just creating, like in the wood workshops for kids. They also offer workshops that help you to learn about different ways to repair and fix many things in your home, such as plumbing in your bathroom, electric solutions, etcetera.
There are many things that you can do with your kids and as a family to spend time together, so why not take the opportunity to sign up for a free class where they can make something special? Your child will feel so proud when they come out with a project they made all by themselves, and you will get a special memory that will stay with you for many years to come. As we said before, if you would like more information about what your local Home Depot is offering in terms of workshop classes for adults and for kids, or if you would like more details about what each class has to offer, you can find everything you need on the Home Depot website, or even by inquiring at your local store location as well. What are you waiting for? It’s time to sign up your kids for an experience that they will want to take part in every month.
