Dr. Seuss' The Lorax and Home Depot Workshop

Every first Saturday of the month, the Home Depot hosts a kids workshop that starts at 9am and ends at noon! With each workshop the kids get to keep the item they created, a great apron, a commemorative pin and a certificate of completion. On top of that the kids also take home some great do it yourself tips, tool safety and a sense of accomplishment!! Well, as most of you may know and may be anticipating this Tuesday, is the release of Dr. Seuss' The Lorax. To commemorate the anticipation of the release, the Home Depot teamed up with EPA's Energy Star and Dr. Seuss' The Lorax this Saturday for the Kids Workshop! This Saturday Robert got to attend the workshop at our local Home Depot. Robert loves working with his hands and building things with his daddy, so this was the perfect workshop for the two of them to do together!! Like the other kids that were there, Robert was very proud of himself and what he had accomplished, as were we! We love attending workshops like this one with the kids and we find them to be a great way for the kids to have fun creating with other kids, pick up some tips and skills and have fun!!!

At The Home Depot locations nationwide, the Kids Workshop will provide children with Lorax activity sheets, Lorax create-you-own mustache kits, and Lorax sticker sheets. Each store will also have one life-sized Lorax poster to affix to a wall so kids can have their picture taken with The Lorax that you can tweet to @The Lorax and @HomeDepot.

This month's activity is "Build a Cork Bulletin Board."
• Kids will learn to build their very own cork bulletin board while learning tool safety
• Have fun, make friends and gain a sense of achievement and work ethic
• You can paint and add embellishments to your project while at the workshop
