The first Saturday of every month Home Depot offers a kids workshop! Once and a while there's a bonus. This weekend was the bonus. I'm going to walk you through how easy it is to take your kids to this freebie in your area!
First off sign up online at your local store. It's not necessary but it gives them a heads up on how many kits to order. Next even if you sign up it doesn't guarantee you a kit; it is a first come first serve deal. The workshop is 9am-12noon. Of course if you get there earlier versus later your chances are good.
Behold the kit of the day. Some kits vary in size, ease of assembly and some you get to paint (on site).
The tables usually have the necessary tools. This kit also required a screwdriver not shown.
Instructions are pretty easy to follow. I have messed up once and a while but for the most part it's not that bad.
The instructions include an inventory of the necessary items to cross check for assembly.
The kits come usually come with all the pieces to include nails at various sizes, decals and anything relevant to the project.
The instructions are so through that it tells you when to use large nails and small nails.
Hammering is not easy but I have watched my daughter get much better at hammering.
She is able to hold the piece steady and hammer the nails now.
Bring on the back of the project!
Screwdrivers were needed. My son loves to play with his tools at home so this was exciting to him.
Screwing a screw in is hard to do. ousting the screw down and twisting it in required another hand.
The top of the project required a screw eye!
A little finger to secure to secure the last piece of hardware.
Finishing touches were easy and I could step back and relax now.
I present you a finished product not painted but my other child wants to paint theirs and then apply the stickers.
A picture frame! A nice handmade gift for someone for Christmas or a keepsake ornament for the tree.
