Lowe's Build and Grow Activity for Kids
My son and I love doing things together on the weekend. One of our favorite activities is the Build and Grow program at Lowe's. Every other weekend, Lowe's puts on a "Build and Grow" activity for the kids. It's an absolutely wonderful activity for you and the little ones. And the best part? IT'S COMPLETELY FREE!!!! They provide first timers with an apron, name badge, and safety goggles. All for your lil' one to keep and personalize. They also provide the entire kit for the project. My son was able to build many different things over the past months. He's built a Monsters University wooden box, a wooden RC race car from Toy Story, and El Chupacabra from the movie Planes. upon completion of the project, you go back to the person running it and they'll give you a patch you can attach to your apron. It's super cute and builds focus, coordination, and confidence in your little one. Yes, there are hammers and nails involved so you definitely NEED to supervise your children. You will also have to sign a waiver in order for your child to participate. You can print them out once you register online OR they make them available to you at the store site. "How do I sign up?" - Registration tends to fill up quickly but visit the Build and Grow site (via Lowe's website) often to see when they post registration. http://lowesbuildandgrow.com/pages/default.aspx "Do they take 'walk-ins'?" - They take 'walk-ins' based on availability. They give those that have registered 15 min to make it. At that time, any extra availability will be offered to first come, first serve. Here are a few of the projects my son has completed. These projects are a couple months old - but always just as much fun!
