FREE Home Depot Kids’ Workshop 11/2: Build an American Eagle!

There’s no reason your kids shouldn’t be put to work swinging a hammer. Well, I mean, not at your house, but Home Depot welcomes the little builders!

On scheduled Saturdays each month, Home Depot offers a free workshop for kids to build their own wooden masterpiece. Designed for kids ages 5-12, but all ages welcome! I’ve taken my kids when they were 3 and 4 and although they weren’t too adept at the hammering, they loved the stickers and painting parts!

Show up anytime between 9am and 12pm, and your child will be outfitted with the hallmark orange apron and the tools to create a wooden “whatever” (each month is a new project). And yes, they get to bring their timbered showpiece home for all to admire, along with a certificate of achievement and a snazzy pin for their apron. Did we mention it was FREE? Good job Deeps, we salute you.

This week’s project: American Eagle
Saturday, November 2, 2019; any time between 9:00am-12:00pm
You’ll be proud to complete this project using everything in the American Eagle kit. Learn to use a hammer, fine sandpaper, wood glue and a Phillips screwdriver. Assemble the bird’s basic shape and its wings, then add fun stickers. Paint the piece to bring it to life, and then build the base to help your bird stand tall. All Kids Workshop attendees must be accompanied by a parent or adult at all times. 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.

Kids’ Workshop held at all Home Depot locations (although it’s always a good idea to call first)

        I see little bitty kid’s building projects at our store also adults with disabilities who the age does not apply to. As long as you are able to help them it shouldn’t matter. Maybe just call and ask first at your local store.

        Melissa yes he can participate I’ve taken my son since 2017 and he was 3 yrs old and i have a newborn i make the stuff for him as well and i have a 8yr old and 5 yr old. Its fun to help them build

        I guess it would depend on your three-year-olds skill level. I bring my three-year-old and he has several pins. It teaches them great hand eye coordination and they get to keep their project that they did and you get to help.

      This will be my first time going and I can’t wait to take my two year old :). I’m sure she will have a blast.

      I have a 10 year old boy, and we’ve been going since he was about 2 1/2 – 3. He loves making the probjects, and while he doesn’t need my help anymore it is still fun to get out and do. He actually looks forward to them each month, and remembers that they are always the first Saturday.

      I’d like to post a HUGE thank you to Home Depot for having this for kids! I’m getting ready to take my daughter to her 1st workshop today, the best thing is my dad is joining us and he’s really excited too!

        I take my down syndrome 18 year old And he loves the projects. They are very welcoming. Never an issue. He is on a first name basis with many in the store.

      We took our children when they were little ones. ( we still have some of the projects and badges!) Now our children,
      and sometimes us as Grandparents, take THEIR children! My grandchildren are so thrilled and excited for each project. My 5 yeat old granddaughter displays her project pins on her work apron and proudly wears it each month. She also has her own little toolbox, with tools. She buys a new tool each month and loves to help fix things at home if needed. Thank you Home Depot for building such memories for our family!

      We have been taking our grandson since he was 3 years old he now is 9. He loves going and we love taking him. Patrick is fabulous that runs it.

    6. Gladys

      I take my two kids to these workshops. And my 4yr old has since found a passion for trying to use tools at home even when it’s not needed but we love it! And they look forward to putting on their Home Depot apron and going every month!

      I have taken my grandsons for a long time, it is an amazing way to help them build their self esteem and be able to bring home something that they “made” with their own hands! Please use this opportunity to spend quality time with a child—-itll make you feel good and certainly a child who can alsways use time to interact with an adult who cares about them making them feel like they are worth the time and attention moreso than always with their head in a video game.

      My girls are 8 and 6 and we have been going for years. My siblings will also bring their kids and we make a family event out of it. I wish my girls would still let me help, but not anymore. Lol.

      Home Depot, you provide so much fun for so many. Thank you for all you do in prep, supplies, hands-on instruction, and your time involved. This is the best community outreach and it is very impactful. Can’t thank you enough!

      Does anyone know if home Depot by chance has the extra project kits and pins the following day. I have been taking my daughter for a year and a half. We we’re not able to make it today due to a family emergency and it is the only one we have missed. I am sadder than my daughter is because I plan on keeping all these workshop projects for rest of my life

      Thank you Home Depot and all your staff!!
      And no worries I still go in and buy way more than than what I came in for! Always a great time to meet, learn, and respect others in the neighborhood and opportunity to see help or help others! ( a lil glue can stick and a lil help with an extra hand can help a lot)

    12. Greg

      I have been taking my daughter for five years she loves all of the projects we have done through the years and it is a great way for her to learn how to use basic tools.

      I have been taking my grandkids. 6 of them. The two I raise I took in diapers. They are boys. I have all girls. Was looking for something to do with them that was for boys. They loved it then and still do. They are 7 and 8. My granddaughters love it as well. We all spend time together and they learn good skills. My 7 yr old is autistic and he still enjoys most parts of it himself. Doing more by himself all the time. Lowe’s used to do it as well every other week. We did both.

      We try not to miss any of the kids workshops. The skills our grandchildren learn there benefit them greatly. They take pride in their building projects. Employees Paulette and Betty, who supervise the workshops, are personable, helpful, and attentive to the children. We can tell they enjoy working at the kids workshops. We are grateful to Home Depot for providing this free program.
