If you like the DIY kits from Lowe's these are similar - except with the Home Depot kids DIY kits you will get a pin instead of a patch. They have everything in needed to build the kit, minus the tools.

This October's DIY kit is a Fire Chief's Car. At my Lowe's they just have boxes of these kits behind the Customer Service desk. You have to go to the CS desk and ask for one, it wasn't advertised anywhere at my store. I've received two different answers from two different CS reps of when they get them in. One told me at the beginning of the month, but when I went in on the 2nd I was told they don't usually get a new shipment in till the middle of the month.

All the supplies are provided but you need to have your own tools (i.e. hammer, screwdriver, etc.)

From my past experience, yes, all the materials for the project are included in the kit except for basic tools like a hammer, screwdriver, paint if your child wants to paint their craft. The nails, if applicable are usually included with the kit.

Home Depot has done this for many years on the first Saturday of the month. In non-pandemic times, you actually build the kits in-store. Some locations require pre-registration while others allow you to just walk in.

Lowes started doing them again within the last year or so after stopping for a while. They give them out on the second Saturday of the month.
No politics needed, friend. A lot of parents, myself included, just want their kids to be preoccupied for 10 mins. These workshops used to be a very fun social event.

Since the pandemic, we've asked CS the first saturdays and usually they are out of kits fast at the HDs near us. We've been lucky once.
Yes you can just go to the CS desk and ask for a few for your kids.

Do you know how is it working in the pandemic times? For both Home Depot and Lowes.

The ping pong ball was September's free DIY kit. I assume they sell them the month after they were free. This month the fire chief's car is the free DIY kit. The will probably sell the fire cheif car in November.

This free DIY kit is picked up at Home Depot. It is referring to Lowe's as Lowe's also does a free DIY kit - so if you were interested in the Lowe's kit you would might be interested in the Home Depot free kids kit.
