If you’ve got a kid age 5-12, you’ll want to mark your calendar for this one.
On the first Saturday of each month–that’s 6/4/11 in June–Home Depot offers free “How-To Workshops” for youngsters from 9 a.m. to noon. These are hands-on sessions where the kids actually build a project they can take home with them. On Saturday the project is a valet organizer.
And this month–because Father’s Day is June 19, Home Depot is doing a special Father’s Day Workshop on Saturday June 18 where kids can make a “lil toolbox” that would make a great Father’s Day gift.
According to the Home Depot’s website, “The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, this fun time allows for quality one-on-one time between adults and children.”
In addition to the newly constructed project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot associates’ aprons, and an achievement pin.

If you’re out and about Saturday and want to learn about the Boone family women, then a special guided tour at Nathan Boone Homestead State Historic Site near Ash Grove is for you. The one-hour tour will begin at 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public. The guide will be Greta Russell, editor of the Missouri Women’s History Blog.
According to a Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources news release:
“Foremost among the women in Nathan Boone’s life was his wife, Olive. The two were married in Kentucky in 1799, and traveled alone to Missouri just weeks later. Nathan Boone was 18 years old and Olive was 16. While Nathan devoted his energies to hunting, surveying and other pursuits that kept him away from home for long periods of time, Olive quickly learned to adapt to life on the early Missouri frontier. The couple remained together for 57 years until Nathan’s death in 1856. Eleven of their 14 children were daughters. The tour will focus on the story of Olive’s life as well as the story of Nathan Boone’s mother, Rebecca Boone, his mother-in-law Marjory Van Bibber, and several of their daughters.”
Nathan Boone Homestead State Historic Site preserves the last home and graves of Nathan and Olive Boone. It is located 1.5 miles north of Ash Grove on State Highway V. Ash Grove is about three and a half hours southwest of St. Louis or a half hour west of Springfield, MO.
