The next free Kids Activity Kit from Home Depot is almost available! These in-store events take place on the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 12 noon, which means the next event is Saturday, August 6! No registration is required.
If you prefer, you can purchase this month's kit here while supplies last and guarantee you'll get one! This is completely optional though. You can also purchase an earlier kit, which supplies last. I've linked to the ones I could find down below.
August Freebie Event: Summer Camper
The kits include nails, screens, stickers, and wooden pieces. You will need to provide your own sandpaper, wood glue, hammer, and #2 Phillips screwdriver.
In addition to keeping the craft forever, each kit comes with a free certificate of achievement, free Workshop Apron, and free commemorative pin. You can find more info on this month's free craft here.
These free craft kits are intended for 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 kits available per store! Find your local Home Depot and then call ahead to make sure they still have free kits available.
Most stores give these away at the customer service counter. Other stores reportedly give these away near the checkout registers.
Don't miss the free Workshop Extension Activity!
Each free kit also has an “extension activity” created in tandem with Discovery Channel Education. These are kind of cool, as they let your child “upgrade” the free craft they built. For instance, the November 2021 Amphibious Military Vehicle extension teaches your child how to build life vest for their imaginary passengers.
