Kids get to build a rain gauge for the month of March. It will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017, at your local Home Depot from 9 AM to 12 NN. The rain gauge can be used to measure the rain dropped by spring storms. Once the gauge is built, kids can personalize it with paint. I think since it would be a rain gauge, it would be great to add a seal on it because it is wooden and it will be outdoors and get wet. As of previous Home Depot Kids Workshops, this rain gauge is 100% free, and comes with an apron, a Rain Gauge pin, and a certificate of achievement, all provided by Home Depot. Children must be accompanied by adults. Everything needed to build the Kids Rain Gauge will be provided by Home Depot. For more information, and to register, go to the Home Depot Kids Workshop’s website. Workshops for adults, and specifically women, are also provided by Home Depot.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to attend the workshop for the month of February so we didn’t get to make a Valentine’s Photo Box.
Another unfortunate news, there will be no more Lowe’s Build and Grow Clinics. The last and final Build and Grow clinic was held on December 3, 2016 which was about Christmas Ornaments. Lowe’s did say in their statement that they will “continue to explore new and fresh ways to inspire, educate and engage with customers”. Hopefully, they will provide a similar program for the community because kids enjoyed the free clinics so much.
