They all do it as far as I know. Also, in Canada (since Radio Shack all got re-branded) there is the Source...

Home Depot has dyi projects for children too. They aren't badly priced either.

Although my dd isn't into this kind of thing she might like doing something just for fun

Yup, this is what I was going to say.

Home Depots also offer free kids workshops - http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/catalog/servlet/ContentView?pn=HT_WS_KidsWorkshops&searchRedirect=Kids+classes&redAB=B we'll be doing them in our area.

Lowe's also offers kids classes - http://www.lowesbuildandgrow.com/pages/default.aspx

My DH is excited to be doing these with my boys, he plans in taking one at a time...lol.. (child not class).
