Children's builder workshop set

If you gave your child a hammer, would they hammer all day? Well, if so then the Blanchard Public Library, in partnership with the Home Depot, has a great program for you!
We'll be presenting a Children’s Builder Workshop at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 23.

Representatives from the Home Depot will help children build their own wooden flower planter and finish it off with a potted plant.

The event is for children in kindergarten through 5th grade, and each child will need an attending big person to assist in the project. So put on your carpentry belt and work gloves - because it's going to be a hammering good time!
