Review of Home Depot Kids Workshop in Louisville, KY

 photo IMG_5307_zpsb644bd5b.jpgHome Depot offers free kids workshops the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 12 pm. The workshops are designed for children ages 5 - 12. Workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills, tool safety and instill a sense of pride and accomplishment. The kids get to keep their craft, receive a certificate of achievement, a workshop apron, and a commemorative pin to put on the apron.

We have done other kids workshops, but I appreciated Home Depot's earlier and longer hours, pins instead of iron on patches, and the staff was very friendly. The craft was a bit messier and more difficult to complete than others we have completed, but my kids had a great time. The set up was the same as other workshops, with the kids and parents sitting on the floor with long boards for tables. There was plenty of room, and lots of families present to enjoy the activity. We'll definitely be back!

Here is some information from their website:
•Offered the 1st Saturday at all The Home Depot stores between 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Please do not arrive before 9:00 a.m.
