Bonding Over Projects

Some of us have been taking advantage of the free building workshops for adults at Home Depot, and the ones for kids at both Lowes and Home Depot. We did them a couple of years ago, then stopped for a while, and then started up a couple of months ago. It's free fun and a shared experience to bond over.

Here are some of the projects.
Lowes had cars to make from kits the first three times. 

There's a patch for each completed project.

They made a butterfly house at Home Depot.

Jessica, her mother in law Lisa, Jasmine and I went to a women's workshop at Home Depot. We removed slats from a wood crate.

 Cut it in half with a power saw.

Put the slats back on and added legs to the two halves to make a vegetable stand.

Mine is actually right here in my writing area holding the books I'm using.
Then Lowes had a birdhouse project.

Tyler hung one of them in a tree.

In the next few weeks, the kids have an Angry Birds birdhouse at Home Depot. Jessica, Lisa and I have two womens' ones at Home Depot. Jasmine is joining us for one of them. Tyler, Jessica, Lisa and I are doing two general ones at Home Depot.

If you haven't tried the projects with your kids, give it a go. They may love it. And it's a good bonding thing. It's something Rick does with them. And it's free.

Here is the link to sign up for the Angry Birds birdhouse. You can check for it in your area by zip code. HERE
