B&Q Kids Can Do It classes help children aged 7-11 learn basic DIY skills through small projects such as building bird feeders and making picture frames. They usually cost £5 a session, but members of the free B&Q Club get them free.

Become a member: Simply register online and you'll be sent a confirmation email with your membership code in. If you're already a member, you don't have to re-register.

Book your class: To see the available classes, go via this Kids Can Do It link and book on the store and month you'd like. It'll then show you all the slots available and what your little 'uns will be building.

It says the classes cost £5, but telephone 03330 143 354 and quote the store, class and your B&Q membership number and it's free.

The classes take place at 38 B&Q stores and there's no limit to the number you can book.

MSE Michael says:

Classes run on Saturdays and Sundays and B&Q provides all the tools and materials needed.

Sessions usually last an hour and, depending on the store, here are some of the things kids make:

  • 'Santa stop here' sign
  • Hedgehog house
  • Toolbox
  • Christmas advent calendar
  • Christmas planter
  • Christmas tree

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.

For the sake of transparency, so you can check there's no difference, here are duplicate versions of the * links that don't help MoneySavingExpert.com: Currently no affil links.
