Bring the kids to a Home Depot Free Kids Workshop for children ages 5 – 12 on the first Saturday of each month and other select days between 9 a.m. and noon. These how-to clinics aim to teach kids how to create useful and educational projects, while emphasizing tool safety. All supplies are provided and kids will receive an orange apron to take home, along with the completed project and an achievement pin.
Saturday, October 6: Fire boat – Celebrate National Fire Safety Month in this hands-on workshop where you and your child can build a model fireboat to put out shoreline or shipboard fires and transport emergency personnel and rescue workers. Once your firefighting vessel construction is complete, you and your hero can decorate it with paint and stickers and give it a name like the historically famous fireboats that precede your new firefighting craft.
All kids get to keep their craft, receive a FREE certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron, and a commemorative pin while supplies last. Children must be present at the store to participate in the workshop and receive the kit, apron and pin.
Find you nearest Home Depot here and get the kids out of the house this winter to build some things!
