KC Edventures Guide for Ages 9-11

Build Something

Do you have a child who loves to take things apart just so they can put them back together again?  Lots of kids love to build projects and use tools.  Help them learn these skills, and how to use tools safely, at these great Kansas City places.


The Home Depot Kids Workshops


The Home Depot offers FREE Kids Workshops on the 1st Saturday of each month from 9 am - 12 noon.  Kids have the opportunity to do DIY projects, along with learning tool safetyand  building skills.

Visit their online workshop page to see what projects are currenlty being offered.  Each child will receive a free kid-size orange apron and an achievement pin when they attend.  Make sure to get there early as projects are popular and availability is first come, first serve.  


Lowe's 'Build and Grow' Clinics

FREE do-it-yourself clinics for kids are offered at area Lowe's store.  The 'Build and Grow Clinics' are held once or twice each month on Saturday mornings at 10 am.  Kids can construct some great wooden items such as seasonal crafts, gifts for Mom or Dad and wooden toys. 

These workshops fill very quickly and you need to register online!  You can view the schedule and available projects online.  I highly suggest that you register early.  Lowe's also offers a kid-size work apron and goggles to the first 50 children who register/attend each clinic.
