KC Edventures Guide for Ages 6-8

Build Something

Do you live with a budding architect or construction foreman?  Or maybe a little Mr./Ms. Fix-it?  Kids will love to hone their skills by creating their own projects at these Kansas City locations.


The Home Depot Kids Workshops

FREE Kids Workshops are hosted at all Home Depot locations on the 1st Saturday of each month from 9 am - 12 noon.  Kids can complete DIY projects such as flower planters, picture frames, wooden trucks, and memory boxes.  Kids learn building skills along with tool safety.

Projects can be viewed online and The Home Depot site highlights that each attending child will get a kid-size orange apron and an achievement pin.  Projects are popular and availability is first come, first serve.  Get there early in the day if your little builder has his/her heart set on making something special!


Lowe's 'Build and Grow' Clinics

Lowe's offers FREE do-it-yourself clinics for kids.  The 'Build and Grow Clinics' are offered once or twice each month on Saturdays at 10 am.  They offer a variety of projects, such as wooden toys, holiday themed crafts, and items for the home or garden.

Registration online is a must!  You can view the schedule and project online.  I suggest that you register early as these workshops fill up quickly.  Lowe's also offers a kid-size work apron and goggles to the first 50 children who register/attend each clinic.
