If you’re looking for practical ways to keep your kids occupied during the holiday season, you might be happy to know that Home Depot Free Kids Workshops are back in stores.
The workshops are completely free, but you must Register beforehand to make sure your child secures a spot.
Although they usually take place on the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to noon local time, a bonus workshop takes place at the end of November to kick off the holiday season.
The first workshop will take place on November 26 and will allow your children to create their own Christmas train ornament. The dated ornament features a train adorned with Christmas decorations and has a place for their photo.
The next holiday workshop will take place on December 3 and your child will create their own mailbox to send their wish list to Santa.
The box says ‘North Pole Post’ and ‘Letters to Santa’, so your little ones know exactly where to put their letters – and the post office knows where to find them!
The third event is to create a snowball game right after the children return to school after the holidays on January 7, 2023.
The game features a penguin and resembles table football or table football.
You must register separately for all three events, although you can currently only register for the Train Ornament. Come back after this event has passed to register for Santa’s Mailbox and then for the Snowball game.
To register, go to homedepot.com/workshops/ and scroll down to click on the Register button under In-store children’s workshops.
Although the newer kits are only available in-store, if you would like your children to participate in some Home Depot workshops at home, you can buy previous kits online for $5 each.
Kits available for purchase right now include a Scarecrow Towel Rack Kit, airship kit and Valentine’s Day Photo Box. Home kits come with all the materials needed to build them, along with instructions, apron, lapel pin, and certificate of completion.
Lowe’s also offers a free workshop for kids in November. The Dancing Turkey Toy Workshop will be held in stores nationwide on November 19. The turkey they build can be a fun tabletop toy or a gift for your Thanksgiving host.
Registration is open until November 18, with the event taking place in stores only on November 19 from 9 a.m. – noon.
