Home Depot project @ school!

Yesterday, Ryder's school was lucky enough to have Home Depot come out to visit them and help them put together fun cars from the movie Despicable Me 2!  The helpers were so very sweet and were SO patient with all the kiddos!  There were close to 16 kids, and we didn't have any problems at all!
They each got a set of pieces they were to lay out on the table, along with their instructions, a hammer and their very won tool belt with their name on it!   The workshop co-captain helped told them what to do when and helped make sure everybody was getting all the steps right and doing them in order.

It looks complicated, but it wasn't AT ALL!  --& because I haven't said so yet--this was all FREE of charge!  It can't get much better than that!  Home Depot goes to schools, classrooms etc. and THEY WANT TOO!  They told us to spread the word!  They also do these workshops in house on the first Saturday of every month, with a different project each month.  You can click HERE for more info.

Then they all got to pick out a paint color and paint their cars!  This was a blast, and they had so many pretty colors to pick from!  They even left all the leftover paint, paint brushes and cars with R's school!  How awesome is that!?

All the kiddos with their cars!  SO PROUD!  
...and with the Home Depot helpers!  Thank you guys so much for coming out and making these kids' day!  =)

If you have a Home Depot near you...hollar at them, or go in for a visit and see what projects they have coming up next for your kiddos!
