If you’re looking for something fun — and free! — to do with your kids next month, you’ll want to head to Home Depot, where they are holding a free hands-on workshop.

The workshop will take place on March 2 from 9 a.m.-noon, and your kids will stay busy building a colorful freestanding clock they can take home with them when they’re finished.

The clock has easy-to-read numbers, movable hands and a storage tray. Once the clock is built, your child can customize it with paint and stickers. The clock can serve as decor in their room or be used as a learning tool to help them tell time — or both!

If you plan to go, you’ll need to find your local store and register for the event on Home Depot’s website. Kids must be accompanied by a parent or adult at all times while building the clock. They will get to keep their craft, and they’ll also receive a free certificate of achievement, a workshop apron and a commemorative pin (while supplies last).

Home Depot offers some workshops for adults as well, including a pipe coat hanger workshop on Feb. 21 from 6:30-8 p.m. In the workshop, a Home Depot employee will show you how to build the coat hanger for your entryway. While the workshop itself is free, you will have to buy the materials and then make the final product at home.
