Kids Workshops at Home Depot are a great way for kids to learn skills! ⭐️

The Home Depot Kids Workshops are offered the first Saturday of every month with fun crafts and activities for your kiddos!

On October 7th, kids can build their own Rescue Floatplane at the next workshop, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

To get in on this fun free event, you will want to register online. Spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Just scroll down to the “In-Store Kids Workshops” and click “Sign-Up” to register at your local store to see if they still have spots available.

Planning to attend a Home Depot Kids Workshop? Check out these SUPER helpful tips from readers Joe & Adrianne…

My daughter did this for 5-6 years (lots of pins were collected for her apron). Yes, wet wipes and paper towels are a must to bring along. Also, paint the wood before you build. Yes, the kiddos may want to jump right in, but they turn out much better this way (easier to get all the corners/small parts). Also, don’t forget to take pictures of the building. These memories last a lifetime! Enjoy them while they are young! – Hip2Save Reader Adrianne

We just did one of these and here are a few observations & tips from our experience at our local store. Things might be different at your store. It was a gun and we will definitely be doing it again.

– Everything is provided, including the necessary tools – screwdrivers, hammers, glasses, etc… Some of them are small for kids and some are bigger for adults to use. My kids went crazy with the hammers, so watch out!

– Even though they offer paint and brushes for kiddos also, there were no napkins or paper towels for cleaning hands, clothes, etc… Bring some of your own wipes, napkins, or whatever, just in case!

– There is no set start or stop time. You just show up between 9 AM and noon, go to the designated area/table and open a kit to begin working. I don’t know how they manage attendance, but there weren’t many kids when we got there, but lots by the time we left. We were never asked our name or checked in on a list either, so you could probably just show up?

– The HD staff don’t actually teach or show everyone what to do unless you ask. This is not a guided class or something. The instructions are pretty good for DIY but don’t expect someone to walk you through the entire thing step by step.

– The tables got pretty crowded and cluttered with all the tools, parts, and other stuff, so we eventually just went to an open area on the ground nearby. It was much easier and quieter to hammer nails on the ground vs. a plastic table also. – Hip2Save reader Joe

Lowe’s has free kids workshops, too!

    These are great! We just did the microscope from last weekend, and my kids love it. The lens even magnifies stuff under it. Lows has stickers, Home Depot has paint. We try to do both every month.

      Aww, yay! So happy to hear how much your kiddos enjoy the Lowes and Home Depot workshops! 🥰 Very cool that the microscope magnified! 🙌

    I registered my kids for the last activity but we arrived around 11am. I was told they don’t have any more kits and they have no access to the registration. My youngest was very disappointed because he was looking forward to making the microscope. I like how Lowe’s have a checklist of those registered and if you don’t come after your time slot they can give your kit away to those who are there.

      SO sorry to hear about that, Marsha. That sure sounds frustrating. Hoping the next event might go more smoothly for you if you decide to try again. ❤️
