For many families with their children at home, they are looking for different and creative ways to keep busy this summer without having to spend too much money on costly and time-consuming day camps. Luckily, Home Depot stores from all across the country is offering families a way to beat the heat with one of many free workshops in the coming weeks.
The retailer is looking to cure those “bored” summer days by offering a workshop for kids from the ages of 5 to 12. On Saturday, August 4 from 9 a.m. until noon, kids can come in to build a set of bookworm bookends at participating stores.
They will be using wood to construct them and can also decorate the bookends with various colors of paint and stickers. What’s more, all of the materials are provided for free by the company. All parents have to do is check out Home Depot’s website, enter your zip code and register for the workshop at your nearest location. The stores also provide orange aprons, similar to the ones that employees wear, to each participant.
In addition to the kids’ workshop, parents can get in on all of the fun, too. That’s because Home Depot also offers workshops for adults that want to work on their crafting skills. There are various different group projects and instructional sessions available including learning how to install a toilet, ceiling fans and tile flooring, as well as how to build a storage caddy. The company provides the instructions, demonstrations and the hands-on learning experience, but does not provide any of the materials that are needed for the class.
Many fans have has plenty of positive things to say about the workshop experience, as it gives both kids and adults and opportunity to learn some basic, yet everyday skills. What’s more, it also gives kids a full hands-on learning experience while also saving parents money on camp fees and tuition at the same time. In other words, it’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.
