Kids can make their own crafty gifts for giving for just a few dollars or even free this holiday season.
Advance online registration is often required and some of the more popular ones fill up fast.
Home Depot: Kids can make either a small toolbox or a tic-tac-toe game or both! For schedule and details, visit http://workshops.homedepot.com/workshops/kids-workshops
Michaels: For just $2, kids can create a winter scene snow globe, reindeer ornament or sew a felt stocking. Visit http://www.michaels.com/Kids-Store-Events/store-events-kids,default,pg.html for times and dates.
Lowes: A pull back car and a train engine are currently on the schedule at the Build & Grow kid clinic. These fill quickly so you may have to travel to another Lowes location if you don’t register far enough in advance. Visit http://lowesbuildandgrow.com/pages/default.aspx for more details.
