We participate in Home Depot’s Kid’s Workshops on the first Saturday of each month.

Kids Workshop is an award-winning program that has been offered at The Home Depot stores since 1997. The workshops are free, how-to clinics designed for children ages 5-12, available on the first Saturday of each month between 9 a.m. and noon at all The Home Depot stores. Children, accompanied by an adult, use their skills to create objects that can be used in and around their homes or communities. …

  • Since 1997, 17.5 million projects have been built at Kids Workshops
  • More than 1 million children built their first toolbox at The Home Depot.
  • More than 845,000 birdhouses have been constructed at Kids Workshops.
  • 75 children per store attend a Kids Workshop on average while many stores have 200 kids attend regularly.
