Home Depot Kids Workshops

Saw this the other day when I was at Home Depot…

A do-it-yourself Home Depot Kids Workshop. A bunch of kids taking part in a Home Depot Kids Workshop in Franklin, Tennessee.

…I wish I’d participated in a few do-it-yourself projects when I was a kid!

The only “hands-on experience” I got as a little kid was in my own backyard… making mud pies and collecting lightening bugs & nightcrawlers.

Kids participating in a hands-on workshop at the local Home Depot. Kudos to Home Depot… and to the parents of these kids who saw the value in kids participating in some do-it-yourself home projects at a young age.
