Summer is right around the corner and I’m always looking for fun, interesting and different things to do with my daughter. While on Facebook, a friend of mine posted that Lowes and Home Depot had Saturday workshops for parents and kids. The great news is that they’re free! After checking out the workshops, I found a few more places that have similar workshops worth sharing.
The suggestions listed below are perfect for rainy weekends when the park or beach is out of the question. It taps into your child’s creative side and gets them away from the television.
Lowes (www.LowesBuildandGrow.com): Offers free workshops. You can see the different projects by entering your zip code and registering. During the registration it will tell you the recommended age. It’s very easy and fast. When you’re done, it directs you to print a waiver to take with you to the workshop.
Home Depot (www.HomeDepot.com): Offers free workshops on the 1st Saturday of every month. The workshops are for all ages and experience levels. Registration is very simple as well. I registered Jade for the Despicable Me class in July!
Joann Fabrics (www.Joann.com/storeevents): You have to find the store near you then choose Kid’s Class Schedule. They do charge.
Hobby Lobby ( www.HobbyLobby.com): Click on Stores, then there is a link for store classes. They also charge.
AC Moore (www.Acmoore.com): You will have to use the store locator then choose events. Another one that charges.
Michael’s (www.Michaels.com): Again you have to find the store near, then click on the icon for events. Their events are called Show IN Tell. Most of them are free. A few scrap booking classes are $5.
Your public library – Don’t forget your public libraries have storybook reading times as well as kid book clubs. Best of all, the library is free!
