The #digin series is a set of posts written by me, sponsored by Home Depot. You can also see the other posts in this series here.
Those are big assertions to make, aren’t they? Entertain. Inspire. Teach.
We know that you want to instill good values on your children– and if you happen to be a gardener, or have an appreciation for nature– then those values include cultivating in your young ones the desire to grow.
Today was one of those days when “working” as a blogger wasn’t much work. We were invited by Home Depot (as part of their #digin campaign) to attend their workshop, although I often bring my children to workshops such as this without any financial prompting.
I love that these classes are geared towards children of all ages, so it’s a great opportunity to get your sons and daughters introduced to other kids. (Homeschoolers, I think you’ll really like this!). Plus it lets them get down and dirty with paint and dirt, our favorite mediums.
Not only is it free, but they give you an apron and a free class-specific button that they can tack on each month.
(As an aside, Home Depot also offers DIY classes and DIY herself classes, specifically designed to empower women with DIY know-how on the third Thursday of every month. Each quarter, one workshop will be “Inspired by Pinterest.” So if you’re a mom who wants to meet other hands-on moms, then woohoo! I’ll see you there. You should be able to find their class schedule on their website, they’ll also have it listed in their store.)
There’s no age restrictions on the class, but the younger ones may need a little assistance. In terms of both assembling supplies and reaching the table.
Singing a song while you paint helps get the creative juices flowing. “Woohoo! I’m paint paint painting.”
It also helps to use both hands while you paint, so you don’t waste any time.
“Super painting smile!”
The kids were making little holders for flowers to go into. Er, I was going to call it a “pot holder” but I’m pretty sure that would be confusing.
Here’s a photo of the almost-finished product (the mystery flower still needs to be planted).
A masterpiece, no?
