WHEN they say hands on, all you can imagine is lots of sticky paint and glue and glitter. But the kids love it!

Bunnings' DIY Workshops mean parents don't even need to clean up the mess.

Kelly Murray took her four-year-old twins, Chloe and Alana, for the first time, after finding out about the workshops online.

She said it was difficult to find free things for the kids to do sometimes.

Genevieve Balgowan agreed. Her six-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, was having a blast painting a pot in multi-colours.

"It's nice for her to interact with kids outside her school and this teaches them about the environment as well," Ms Balgowan said.

Elizabeth said she wants to grow strawberries because they would taste nice.

"I like that we get to make stuff and get messy," she said.

And that's what Bunnings manager Patrick Little said it was all about.

"We let them play with paint and glitter and dirt and let them make a mess, and then we clean it up," he said.
