Looking for a springtime project for the kids to create that won’t have you spending a bunch of money at your local craft store?

Well, The Home Depot has you covered.

The home improvement retailer will host a free kids’ workshop on April 7 where participants can build their own window birdhouses.

These little habitats for the birds in your backyard attach to windows with small suction cups. One side is made of a clear plastic pane so your kiddos can observe their feathered friends inside.

Adult supervision is required for this hands-on craft. Though the directions for construction indicate this project is not suited for children under 4 years old, younger kids may enjoy painting and putting stickers on the completed project at the in-store session.

In addition to getting to bring home their DIY birdhouse, participants can also score a free workshop apron, commemorative pin and certificate of achievement (while supplies last).

Although there is no fee, The Home Depot is asking participants to register online in advance. Sign up at your nearest store here. The workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to noon.

If building birdhouses doesn’t interest your little ones, keep checking The Home Depot’s kids workshops site for future events. They’re held monthly at stores across the country.

The home-improvement store also regularly hosts free workshops for adults to learn skills for future projects. Check your local store for details on upcoming events.
