Home Depot Kids Workshops

Home Depot Kids Workshops are back in person in stores! Make plans to bring your mini-DIYer into Home Depot for a FREE kids building event with a new seasonal-themed workshop each month.

From wooden planters to constellation viewers, interactive games to Mother’s Day gifts, every month your local store highlights a different project and gives you a free kit with all the materials needed.

Each Home Depot Kids’ Workshop is a free in-store event designed to offer families an opportunity to complete DIY-projects together. The supervision of a parent and/or guardian is required for all participants. Home Depot Kids’ Workshops and free kits are available to anyone who visits the store, no purchase or registration is required. We are excited these workshops are back for monthly in-person events at Home Depot!

Home Depot Kids Workshop Details

Free Workshops are held the first Saturday of each month from 9am – 12pm. The best part is that there is a new kit for every workshop so you can build a new, free DIY kid’s project each month!

Each month a new seasonal-themed workshop will be offered. All tools and materials needed to complete the project will be available and a Home Depot Associate will be there to assist families as necessary. Kids in attendance will receive a kid-sized Home Depot Apron, commemorative pin and certificate of project completion for participation. (There is no age range listed on the Home Depot website)
