Free Family Fun: Kids Workshop at Home Depot – a Cork Bulletin Board (August 2012)

FREE Kids Workshop program from Home Depot is a great way to spend Saturday morning with kids. Each month there will be different project for kids to do. It’s fairly easy project that kids as young as 4 years old will be able to enjoy with the help of a parent. Everything is pre-cut and pre-drilled. So most of the activities will evolve around hammering nail or glue the wood.

This month project is to Build a Cork Bulletin Board. The Home Depot has teamed up with the EPA’s ENERGY STAR® and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax movie. Each Kids Workshop will provide kids with Lorax activity sheets, Lorax create-you-own mustache kits, and Lorax sticker sheets. Each store will have one life-sized Lorax poster to affix to a wall so kids can have their picture taken with The Lorax.

• Kids will learn to build their very own cork bulletin board while learning tool safety
• Have fun, make friends and gain a sense of achievement and work ethic
• You can paint and add embellishments to your project while at the workshop

Another cool thing about this program is that after each project kids will be rewarded with certificate and pin. Each pin is uniquely designed for that month project. It’s a great way to get kids excited. Not that building their own stuff isn’t excited enough.
