I am always looking for something fun to do with my boys. This is only the 2nd time we've taken the boys to Home Depot on a Saturday for their Kids Workshop, but I hope to do it more often. They provide a kit (free of charge) with instructions to build a different project each month.
This month they made fireboats. I helped my youngest (4) out quite a bit but the older boys could do it on their own.
They also had fire and police people with their rescue vehicles. My youngest took quite an interest in this police man with his dog and very cool car. He was able to go in the car and turn on the lights. Now he says he wants to be a police officer. I asked the police officer why he chose this as a career and he wisely said it's a career that chooses you. He never outgrew his desire to be a policeman. Time will tell what my little guy will be as well as my older boys. It was definetely a great time.
Blessings on your day,
