Building Memories at the Home Depot

This morning my son and I went to the Home Depot Kids Workshop where, on the first Saturday morning of each month, kids get to build a wooden project for free. It’s a perfect hands-on project where kids learn how to use hammer, nails, glue and a bit of patience to create their very own masterpiece. Today’s project: a tulip planter to give mom on Mother’s Day. The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment. It’s a great way to start your weekend with your child. Get there early, as projects always go fast!
In addition to the project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron and an achievement pin. If you look closely, you’ll see Alex has on several pins from his past projects. Wanna know the best part of the morning? Remembering all our mother-son wood working adventures we’ve had over the years while driving home. Thank you, Alex, for a wonderful Mother's Day gift and another perfect memory.
