Hi friends! Last weekend we hosted a fun construction-themed Kids Workshop Party at our house where our kids and their friends built these cute bug houses.

We often take our kids to the monthly Kids Workshops at The Home Depot so when Houseworks, Ltd. reached out to me about their building kits and party supplies, I thought hosting our own kids workshop at our house would be such a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon. For the past 19 years, Houseworks, Ltd. has provided the building kits for Home Depot’s kids workshops and they also sell paper goods party supplies at HomeDepot.com so you can host your own kids workshop party! How fun, right?
I ordered a few bug house kits and a party supply kit online, grabbed some supplies to transform my front yard into a construction zone, and invited a few of my kids’ friends over for a fun building party.
Remember the easy DIY sawhorses I just made? They were made for this party and I just love that they’re kid-sized.
Apparently, my construction party decor was a bit too authentic because after I got everything set up, my phone rang. It was the HOA president.
The voice on the other end was very stern.
HOA: “Is everything alright? This is the HOA lady and we have some concerned neighbors.”
Me: “Um, ok… yes, everything is fine… why?”
HOA: “The danger signs and caution tape all around your yard – what on earth is going on?!”
Me: “Ohhhhh, that. We’re having a construction-themed kids party.”
HOA: “Good heavens, we didn’t know what to think! We thought it was a gas leak or something!”
So it’s worth mentioning: be sure to contact your HOA before throwing a construction-themed party or you might give the neighbors a good scare.
These tiny Home Depot aprons are pretty adorable too. The manager at my local store was kind enough to give me a handful of them for this party. I used my Silhouette Cameo to personalize the aprons with the kids’ names.
Having a friend who is a professional photographer is pretty stinkin’ amazing. Our friends, Shelby, Jason, and their kids attended the party and Shelby was kind enough to snap some of these photos so I can focus on the kiddos. She’s the super sweet and talented photographer who took our family photos for last year’s Christmas card. She’s also the one I built this storage bench for. She’s currently based in Alabama, but will be based in Oklahoma starting this summer, so if you’re looking for a great OKC photographer, check out her website.
You can purchase the party supplies and workshop kits from HomeDepot.com.
