Home Depot Kids Workshop – Build #20 Racecar

Home Depot Kids Workshops

The Home Depot offers a Free Kids Workshop on the first Saturday of every month. Yesterday we were in the store picking up some supplies for a few projects and the cashier asked if we’d like to attend. Unfortunately we were not able to stay but they offered to give us the Free kit to take home and do ourselves. So we took them up on the offer!

If you get the chance you really should take your kids to one of these workshops. They are well designed for young kids and helps get them excited about using simple tools and having fun doing things like we all do on the weekends.

Here’s some pictures from the project we did this week. Thank you Home Depot! Special thanks to the Claremont, NH store!

Building A Wooden #20 Race Car

Our kit included several pieces of wood that create the car, pre-painted Home Depot orange. The kit also included wheels, nails, and decorative stickers for a fantastic looking race car!

The first picture is of my son gluing up the wood parts that later get nailed together.

My daughter used a small hammer to nail some small brads into the car body.

Next my son took a turn doing some nailing, he’s getting pretty good at it!

The finished product! Both kids are now enjoying rolling it all over the house!
