To get a feel of what happens at a workshop, the Bower Family did an adorable video with two of their boys, Weston (6) and William (8). You'll see the family walk into a Home Depot store. They are greeted by Home Depot staff in their orange aprons and handed the kits to build a football kickoff game. "Yeah, the boys had a blast," said Jeremy about the experience. "I think it was really exciting to see them grab the hammer, grab the nails, and put it all together."
Katie agreed and said, "For the first time we weren't like 'No, don't do that! We were like, 'YES! Hammer that as hard as you can!'"
"Just watch out for my finger," Jeremy added.

Home Depot is proud to be a place, "where doers get more done." They also offer online tutorials with these 25 project guides. They are videos of kid-friendly projects you can try at home, at your own pace. Most are under 2 hours and help familiarize your little ones with measuring, cutting, gluing, painting, woodworking, and more.
