I had heard of the Lowes Build & Grow program before but I had never taken the opportunity to attend one until this month. I took my son Isaac (age 6.5) on December 8th at 10:00 a.m. to my local Lowes to make a wooden gingerbread house. WE HAD A BLAST! I am not sure who had more fun, him or me. But we are committed to attending every one we possibly can from now on.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to engage my kids in my creative endeavors. With Isaac, building is more up his alley than coloring and painting. So this is a perfect fit for him. He has asked me every weekend since when the next Lowe’s Build and Grow Clinic is.
So the way it works is you have to pre-register online. The classes are FREE but they want to make sure to have enough supplies. The first time they come they get a work apron. Every time they complete a class they get a patch to iron onto the apron.
Each kid gets a kit with VERY easy instructions that helps the parents and child work through the project independently. They had leftover airplane kits from the previous month so we were able to complete two projects that day.
I can’t tell you how fun it is. If you are busy on Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m. they also sell some of the previous kits in the store. In fact, we picked up the race car one after the clinic so daddy could do a build with Isaac too. They made a race car.
I also bought Isaac three kits for Christmas as well as a beginner tool set from Amazon. He loved it!
The next two clinics are currently taking registrations. January 12th is the Mystery Kit and February 9th is the Wheel of Love. We are signed up for both, who wants to join me?
