Home Depot Kids Workshops Kits are a fun interactive activity you can do with your kids on a Saturday morning each month. The best part, on top of having fun with your little ones, is that these workshops (and the completed projects your kids take home) are free. The next workshop will take place on July 1, 2023, and we’ve got all the details you need to know — like where to sign up, and when to show up.

Home Depot plans these free in-store events on the first Saturday of every month. These workshops take place in person, and your child will go home with their project, an apron, and a certificate and pin for their crafting achievement. The kits include everything you need, except for a few tools and random materials like glue and paint, which will be provided. You can register for the class online prior to the event, or you can register in person as long as the class isn’t full.

Upcoming Home Depot Kids Workshop Kit — July 2023:

Fireworks Bean Bag Toss (Saturday, July 1, 2023)

The next Kids Workshop at Home Depot will happen on Saturday, July 1, 2023, at 9 a.m. local time. Kids will get busy building a Fireworks Bean Bag Toss they can use to practice their golf skills — indoors or outdoors!

You can register your child now on the Home Depot website, but note that your local Home Depot may also allow you to sign up in-store on the day of — it just depends on the location.

Below we’ve outlined what you should expect in each kit, how to find out what each month’s kit will be, and what you need to do to ensure you get your free Home Depot Kids Workshop Kit. Happy crafting!


1. Register for Home Depot Kids Workshops and buy kits ahead of time online.

Home Depot Kids Workshops take place from 9 a.m. to noon on the first Saturday of the month. To ensure you have a place and a kit, your best bet is to pre-register online and order your kit ahead of time. On workshop day, these kits are given out on a first-come, first-served basis — and they sell out quickly. Like, sold-out-by-noon quick.

If you strike out at your local stores, then you’ll either have to wait until the following month or order a Kids Workshop Kit from HomeDepot.com, where kits are usually between $5 – $10.

TIP: You’re allowed to register one child for the in-person workshop. If you have more than one kid, you need to register each one individually. And of course, buy each one their own kit.

2. Build toy cars, planters, or mini-games at Home Depot Workshops.

Most of The Home Depot Kids Workshops have you making little toy vehicles (think: recycling truck, firetruck, or even a tractor), mini-games (January 2022 featured a disc toss game), or seasonal stuff like this Summer Camper kit they ran in August.

The workshop kits include all of your pieces and instructions, as well as a kids’ orange Home Depot apron.registering sign up table for home depot kids workshops

Home Depot employees don’t find out what each month’s Kids Workshop Kit will contain until the first week of the month. Skip asking a team member and grab a sneak peek at the next few Home Depot Kids Workshop Kits online about midway through the previous month. Kits go on sale a week before the in-person workshop.
