The Home Depot Kids Workshop is a free class for kids held every month at all the Home Depot stores across the country. It's one of my favorite free activities for kids and you won't want to miss it.

When a child goes to the Home Depot Kids Workshop, they'll get a free project kit they can complete during the workshop and then take home when they're finished. In addition to the free workshop and project kit, they'll also get a free kid-sized orange apron, certificate of achievement, and commemorative pin for a job well done.

Upcoming Home Depot Kids Workshops

The Home Depot Kids Workshop takes place the first Saturday of every month, usually starting at 9:00 a.m. local time and lasting for a few hours. Your local store will have all the details on the exact time. You can drop in with your child anytime during the workshop class but make sure that they'll have enough time to complete their project before it ends. 

Here's the upcoming Home Depot Kids Workshop, just click on the link for more details and to register.

Heart String Art: On Saturday, February 1, kids can make a piece of heart string art and take it home for free.
