In-Store Activities for Kids in the CSRA

Looking for something different to do? You can get the kids out of the house and entertain them without breaking out your wallet. There are stores around town that offer kid activities/classes for free or at a low cost. Some places will even entertain your kids while you shop. Here is a list of some local places that provide some great fun! 

Home Depot

Home Depot offers monthly free workshops every first Saturday of the month. A parent must be present. All kids get to keep their craft, receive a free certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron, and a commemorative pin while supplies last.

Micheal’s offers in-store craft classes, a kids craft club and a monthly “make and take” event. Micheal’s Kids Club meets on Saturdays at 10:00 AM. The craft club is $2 per visit and this covers all of the supplies. (Please check calendar to confirm the class.) You can drop them off while you shop. Makebreak events are free to the public and happen once a month.
