Free hands-on projects for youngsters are offered at participating Home Depot stores.
The projects are often 9 a.m. to noon the first Saturday of the month. To participate, register on the Home Depot website.
The youngsters build a project from a kit, while picking up some information about tool safety. Participants receive a Kids Workshop apron and keep their handiwork. The activities are designed for youngsters ages 5 to 12.
