FREE Home Depot Kids’ Workshop 8/3: Build a Rocket Pencil Box!

There’s no reason your kids shouldn’t be put to work swinging a hammer. Well, I mean, not at your house, but Home Depot welcomes the little builders!

On scheduled Saturdays each month, Home Depot offers a free workshop for kids to build their own wooden masterpiece. Designed for kids ages 5-12, but all ages welcome! I’ve taken my kids when they were 3 and 4 and although they weren’t too adept at the hammering, they loved the stickers and painting parts!

Show up anytime between 9am and 12pm, and your child will be outfitted with the hallmark orange apron and the tools to create a wooden “whatever” (each month is a new project). And yes, they get to bring their timbered showpiece home for all to admire, along with a certificate of achievement and a snazzy pin for their apron. Did we mention it was FREE? Good job Deeps, we salute you.

This week’s project:

Rocket Pencil Box
Saturday, August 3, 2019; any time between 9:00am-12:00pm
Take school work to another galaxy in our hands-on workshop where you and your child can build a rocket pencil box. Your young aerospace engineer can study the anatomy of a rocket while you construct a handmade case together. Once your rocket pencil box is built, your child can decorate it with paint and stickers. All Kids Workshop attendees must be accompanied by a parent or adult at all times. All kids get to keep their craft, receive a FREE certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron, and a commemorative pin while supplies last. Children must be present at the store to participate in the workshop and receive the kit, apron and pin.

    My son has been going with his grandfather for over 3 years he absolutely loves it.. he started off not being able to do any of it and now he does the entire thing by himself, no help, and really fast! This is a great program I hope it keeps going,, Lowe’s used to have one but they stopped

    In my experience it doesn’t matter if you register or not. Sometimes they have extra kits at the end, sometimes they run out in the middle of the event.
