Lowes Build and Grow Clinics

We're always looking for something fun for the kids to do on the weekend. I used to write about the Lowes Build and Grow Clinics here on my blog but we never went to any because my kids were too young. When my husband came back from his deployment he started building stuff around the house and the kids wanted to join in. He got them their own little aprons and gave them some tools and they would help. When I saw this I just knew the Build and Grow Clinics would be perfect! So I told him about them and he signed the kids up. The best part is: IT's FREE!

We've been going for the past 4 or 5 times and the kids love it. There were a few times when we weren't able to stay for long but if you register your kids online then you can take the kits with you and work on them at home. Here's my son working on the Onion Carriage. I love how lately they have been doing some really great themed projects. The kids also made a Madagascar assault vehicle and airplane.

This past weekend we actually went to our Lowe's store to build our projects. The project for this week was a Chuckie Cheese skee ball type game like the ones they have at the restaurant.

I thought the kids did an awesome job putting them together. They had a cute little area set up and each kid could get their kits and a hammer to get started. (All you need is a hammer to complete each project). The first time the kids went they got their smocks and goggles. They look so cute in them.

 They also get iron on patches for each project they complete. They bring their completed project to the helper at the front of the workstation and they are awarded with a certificate and a patch. You can see the ones I finally ironed on below.

 So if you're looking for something fun to do on the weekends with your kids then I suggest you sign them up for the Build and Grow Clinics! It's fun for the whole family. The next clinic will be September 22 and the kids will be building a fire truck! My kids can't wait!
