The next free Kids Workshop at Home Depot will be held on Saturday, March 2, where children will build a free clock tray.
Spark a conversation about one of the oldest inventions—hands down—in our hands-on workshop. Together you and your timekeeper can build a freestanding clock with easy-to-read numbers, movable hands and a storage tray to house reminders or important trinkets. Use as a learning clock to make telling time fun or as a tool to encourage the value of time. Once your clock is built, your child can customize it with paint and stickers.
These workshops run from 9am-noon and are aimed at kids aged 5-12, though the age range is simply a guide instead of a strict rule. I can also confirm grown adults aged over 30 sometimes have trouble helping their little brother because I'm terrible with tools.
There are only a limited number of spaces available, so you need to register online ahead of time! Find your store, then scroll down and register under “Easel with Whiteboard”. When I used to take my little brother, they didn't enforce a strict arrival time. We would often show up around 10am and have plenty of time to get the project finished before noon!
In addition to the free bookend set, children receive a free certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron, and a commemorative pin while supplies last.17
