discovering life one art adventure at a time
I never thought of Home Depot for a field trip. Last year we took a group of about 15 homeschoolers on a field trip to Publix Market, and it was a big hit.
That is great!! Every year I just dread the 'Building Things' unit. Do all of the stores in Calgary run the program? How did you go about booking it? You have me very excited about this!!
Anonymous: phone the Home Depot in your area and ask to speak to rep about booking the Children's Workshop...it depends on how many kits they have available..I book ahead of time (it takes 4 weeks for the kits to come if they do not have them in stock)..I also find that it is sometimes easier to book a Home Depot in an older nieghborhood as there is less competition for a spot with other schools, pre schools, etc. They provide a few staff to assist, aprons for all the kids, the project, a pin, and a certificate.It helps to have several parent volunteers if you can to help the kids out.
