All Things Thrifty blogger Brooke Ulrich and her children got to preview one of the Home Depot Kids Workshop projects– the Chalkboard Door Hanger. This is the featured project for the August 2015 Kids Workshop and is typical of the kinds of projects the kids do at these monthly free workshops. Get more information about the free workshop at the end of this article.
My kids love projects. I’m lucky they do because nine times out of ten, I’m painting something in the garage myself. They love to be by my side, and I love that we have that in common. The kids often find scrap pieces of wood and go to town painting, sanding, and creating.
When I told them we were going to make a fun craft together, we couldn’t get ready fast enough. No, really, they started fighting over the supplies. Cue Mom counting to ten to keep her patience. In their defense, I knew it was out of pure anticipation!
We gathered a hammer, some 220 grit sandpaper, and paint and paint brushes, and when we finally had our ducks in a row, the kids did great and built the chalkboard door hanger almost entirely on their own. The older two kids hammered the sides together (with a little help from me), and the two youngsters sanded the wood and helped with the painting. They easily added the eye hooks and string too.
After the main portion of the craft was complete, they decided to embellish the chalkboard with sharpie paint pens. They doodled their masterpieces with pencil first, and then traced them with the paint pens. The girls choose flowery swirls, and the boys chose a skull and crossbones.
Since the girls share a room and the boys share a room, one door hanger for each pair was perfect. In fact, the girls immediately wrote “No pants, no shirt, no service,” on their hanger because apparently the boys try to come in their room without one or the other and they dislike that. The boys wrote, “No girls allowed,” naturally.
It was a definite success. The kids had fun making the crafts, and I know your kids will love it too. In fact, unbeknownst to me, our girls shoved theirs into their suitcase when we travelled to Grandma’s house because they wanted to show it off.
The Home Depot’s Kids Workshops are FREE and are held on the first Saturday of every month at every Home Depot store. They start at 9:00 am and last until about noon. The workshops are great for 5- to 12-year-olds. If your little builder is under 5, you’ll need to provide a little more supervision, but all ages are welcomed.
Go to Home Depot Kids Workshops page online to save a place for your child. You can also get more information, including a description of what project is coming up each month.
Can’t get to the workshop? Many of the projects we do in the Kids Workshops are available in our online Woodshop Projects Department.
