FREE Workshops for kids at Home Depot.
My family went for the first time in January. It was wonderful. All the materials (except paint) were provided and each child got to create his/her own project. There was a little help required by grown-ups but, they could do a lot on their own. My daughter was really excited, and the first one to get her project fully painted. She was so proud, she took it to school to show her kindergarten class!
The next workshop is Saturday, February 6, 2010 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. They'll be making a Car Display. Check with your local store to be sure they're running the workshop. Our local store does not require pre-registration, but many stores do, so call ahead to find out. The workshops are designed for children 5-12, but honestly, nobody was checking ages when we went. If you think your 4 year old would enjoy this, I'd encourage you to take him (or her!).
