Hi friends! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that we recently attended The Home Depot Kids Workshop at our local store. If you missed it, I saved the Instastories in my Highlights reel on my profile so you can still check it out. These free kids workshops happen on the first Saturday of every month and they’re a super fun way to spend a Saturday with your kiddos.
We’ve been taking our kids to these workshops for the past few years and we just love that they learn new skills and are encouraged to use their imaginations and be creative. After all, we’re raising future DIYers here!
How fun is this setup? At my local Home Depot store, there are about 350 kids that attend these monthly workshops and the staff always does a stellar job hosting them. I love coming into the store on these days because the atmosphere is fun, vibrant, and exciting.
The Home Depot has partnered with Discovery Education and together, they’ve built ScienceFairCentral.com – a free online resource for students offering STEAM-powered (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) educational resources.
At The Home Depot Kids Workshop, the kids get to build a different project every month and this month, we made a Window Birdhouse. These birdhouses mount onto the outside of a window so the kids can observe the animals up close and personal.
In addition to the in-store workshops, the kids are given Extension Activities, which encourages them to take the projects they built at the workshop and use it at home, for further exploration. To print out the Extension Activities, go to Science Fair Central and scroll down till you see your workshop project.
For our Window Birdhouse project, our Extension Activity involved putting the birdhouse in 3 different locations at home and making observations and conclusions about where the birds preferred to feed. After about a week of observation, we discovered that our Texas wrens weren’t picky – they loved our birdhouses wherever we put them – as long as there was food in it!
I hope to see you at the next Kids Workshop! They’re free, fun, and the perfect way to spend a Saturday with your kids! Visit HomeDepot.com/workshops for more details and to register for the workshop. For more STEAM-powered educational resources, visit ScienceFairCentral.com.
