Building at Home Depot

The first Saturday of the month often finds me heading to Home Depot with somewhere between 2 and 6 kids to build a project.  For free.  For fun. To pass some time and to give Liam in particular a chance to work with real tools.

This month was the annual race car project and they even had a racetrack set up for the kids to race their cars on when they were done building.

I'm also glad that they had several extra kits from previous months for the kids who were into more girly projects and not really race car fans.  Katie decided to make a picture frame and Abby made a heart shaped basket.  The three boys, of course, all made race cars. Then they came home and built their own racetrack out of cardboard boxes and have been playing with it all week. A definite winner this month.

Katie looks so much like Colleen in that pic! Beauty! Looks like another awesome month. I need to get our kids into that.

Yup, your kids would love it. Especially DS1. For me, having the classes the weekend Alan always works helps force me to take them. It makes me have a reason to get up, dressed, and do more with the weekend than just lay about the house being lazy. So I take them for my sake to be honest.
