Free Kids' Workshops

     Both Home Depot and Lowes offer free children's workshops.  Each store gives your child an apron like the the ones their employees wear and a free project that your child puts together with nails and a hammer.  Some projects need to be painted, and other come with stickers.  Both stores supply tools and anything else that may be needed to complete the project there at the store.  Every location offers these workshops.  Best of all it is completely FREE!  For more information click below.  Remember to register because sometimes popular projects run out.  Have fun!
