Teaching children do-it-yours self skills and tool safety, Home Depot’s award winning Kids Workshop helps instill a sense of accomplishment and self esteem in its’ participants. Offered nationally in all Home Depots on the first Saturday of every month, from 9:00 am to noon the workshops are free how-to clinics designed for children ages 5-12. Since the program’s inception in 1997 children and their accompanying adult have developed useful woodworking skills by creating objects that can be used in and around their homes or communities. Through the years, these projects have included the creation of toolboxes, fire trucks and mail organizers, as well as more educational projects, such as a window birdhouse, bughouse or Declaration of Independence frame kit.
According to Bellevue Home Depot Store Manager Greg Fagley the program attracts almost one hundred local children every month. Fagley also stated that both parents and children enjoy the workshop’s creative activities. For more information on the Home Depot Kids Workshop please call 662 7400.
