Lowes has a wonderful children's program for ages 5 and up. I have heard that Home Depot has a similar program, but I don't know anything about it as I have never gone to that program. The children are given an apron, and a pair of goggles to keep and bring each time they come. Each time there is a different project, which vary some in difficulty. When you get there, they have tables set up with the pre-packaged project kits, complete with instructions and a child-sized hammer to use while you are there. The parent is responsible to read the instructions and help the child as needed. When finished, the child gets a nice quality cloth patch to attach to their aprons and a certificate. My boys love it and have learned how to hammer in nails quite well!
