Top on my list of favorite activities to do with my kids is the Lowes Build & Grow Kids Clinics. On select Saturday mornings and now Sunday afternoons, visit your local Lowes and build a wooden project. At my local Lowes, only 50 seats are available and pre-registration is highly recommended. Spaces fill up quickly so you have to keep up with the registration dates.
I love taking the kids here because they don’t post an age minimum. I can take my toddlers, ages 2 & 3 and their favorite part, typically the last step, is the sticker placement. And their mommy, a wanna be Bob Villa, gets to build fun easy little wooden projects from scratch. Of course, I include the kids in the occasional nail pounding but there is only so much their attention span can handle.
Some of the projects are complicated and other times its down right easy. But for a free activity, the kids get to build and decorate a new toy.
Sign up to register for the next workshop on Saturday, June 8th at 10 AM and Sunday, June 9th at 2 PM. Registration is open today. The project: Monsters University Scarers – build Mike and Sulley Scarers.
