about Home Depot:
There's plenty to enhance children's sleep and play spaces, including a line of Disney decor items, paint that turns walls into chalkboards, whimsical wallpaper and window coverings, closet organizers, storage bins, rugs and lamps, and even some child safety items. Its seasonal garden centers sell seeds, plants, tools, and outdoor furniture, including kid-sized chairs and tables.
With all the construction materials, chemicals, and small parts stacked high in the aisles or in open bins, unsupervised children are in real danger here, so parents should stay on alert. (And while those large shopping carts and rolling pallets just beg to be ridden, it's a no-no.)
Home Depot stores offer free Kid Workshops the first Saturday of each month between 9am and 12n. Children ages five to 12 and their accompanying parent or adult learn about tool safety while building birdhouses, fire trucks, mail organizers, and other items from pre-fab kits. Each child also receives a kid-sized Home Depot orange apron and project pin. To sign up for a Kid Workshop, stop by the store and put your kid's name on the list - space is limited, so it's best to sign up early. How-to clinics are offered for Mom and Dad, too.
