Free Kid's Creative Activities - January 2010

Here are a couple of great (Free) January activities for kids and families in Ann Arbor area locations that I thought to pass along. Why not consider taking your child when the snow is a-blowin' and the temperatures drop! Get out and get creative...

Upcoming Kid's Workshops at the Home Depot

The Home Depot Kid's Workshops are free "How-To" workshops geared for kids ages 5-12. They run the first Saturday of the month at all Home Depot stores from 9:00 a.m. - noon.
  • Saturday January 2, 2010 kid's can build their own calendar.

Upcoming Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics:

Every other Saturday from 10:00-11:00 a.m. kids can join in the fun of their own building clinic where they learn the basics of building and using tools as well as how to follow instructions. The projects are fun and easy to complete!

  • Saturday January 9, 2010 kids can build their own coin bank to watch their savings grow. It's a new year and a great time to teach children about how to save their money, so why not save your own money with this free kids clinic at your local Lowe's Store?
