We have known about it for some time but this is the first time that we remembered on the right day. Every month on the first Saturday Home Depot offers a free kids craft. Today they got a small kit called "Classic car", that contained instructions and all the parts they needed to build their own wooden car. When they finished the build there was a table with paint so they could add some color to their creation. What a great way to get some experience with basic tools and paints. The kids loved it!
I think that this will be a regular part of our homeschool once we get back to the US after or summer in Sweden.
