I love free! I also love it when it’s an activity for your kids and their dad. This mommy is NOT HANDY and I do not like the hammer, nails or anything my boys like to do in their special man cave, THE GARAGE. (If you are a handy mom and reading this, bless you! You have a special gift) As for me, I will leave that COMPLETELY up to my husband to bring the boys to do their BOY/MEN activities.
So this is what I found, your local Home Depot offer a free Kids Workshop every first Saturday of the month. This activity is appropriate for 5 – 12 year olds. You arrive at home depot and you will be given the project kit for the day with instructions and the tools necessary to complete the project. Read the instruction and work away! The project will take from 15 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on how quickly your little one works.
