SAVE MONEY. BUILD THINGS.
Lowe’s offers free building workshops for kids a couple Saturdays a month. Rylan has been to a handful. So far he has made a monster truck, spaceship, puppet theatre, and bird house. The website says each participant also receives a free apron, goggles, a project themed patch, and a certification of merit upon completion of their project. We’ve never gotten a certification or goggles, but we did get an apron and continue to get patches every time we go.
At the Lowe’s in Columbia, we used to just be able to take him at 10:00, but now we actually have to register online before going because we’ve been rejected when we haven’t. They take the first 50 kids that register and there have been a couple of times I’ve went to register and they’re already full so I suggest signing up as soon as possible. Sign up for Lowe’s Build & Grow Clinics before it is too late. The next clinic is a really cool Biplane on the 28th. Rylan is going to love it!
From project basics to giving your child the opportunity to say, “I built it!”, Lowe’s Build and Grow kid’s clinics are a great way to help build confidence!
If you can’t make it to a workshop but would still like to make the wood kits, they actually sell some of their Build & Grow kits online.
