Want a fun project for the kids and a gift for Mom at the same time? Then sign up at one of Colorado Springs Home Depots for Saturday May 7th Kids Workshop. Kids ages 5-12 receive one of the coveted orange aprons worn by employees, get hands on safety instructions for working with tools, and 3 hours of one on one time while finishing a project.
The do-it-yourself creation for May is a colorful and functional tulip planter that can be given to Mom on Mother's day. The planter is perfect for window gardens while our spring storms simmer down and before the summer growing season is in full swing.
The workshops are a great way for kids to get that introduction to the wonderful world of hand tools and creating that captures so many of us as adults. What starts as a tulip planter may one day lead to a basement renovation and several more trips to the local Home Depot. But then that's the idea- start them young and get them hooked!
