If your kids like to make crafts, and you don’t have a crafty gene in your body, we’re got a tip for you. My mom still sews at 81-years-old and my twins are interested in learning how to sew. I am lucky if I can sew on a button. Thankfully a number of chain stores run regular free craft workshops for kids, all materials included.
Here are places to find free hands-on craft workshops for kids in South Florida:
• Home Depot. The hardware chain has free kids’ workshops from 9 a.m. to noon the first Saturday of every month. The kids get to keep what they make, plus they get an orange apron, a pin and a certificate. On Saturday, March 2, kids will build a race car.Lego Stores. Mini-Model Build
Sometimes a local store will change the schedule of an event, so it’s always good to call your local store to verify that it is keeping to the schedule published on the national website.
Several South Florida museums schedule periodic free crafts classes for kids and families, including the Bass Museum of Art and the Miami Art Museum. Some library branches in Miami-Dade and Broward also organize free craft activities. Check the Miami-Dade calendar here and the Broward calendar here.
