Reader Tip: Free build and grow workshops for kids

Thanks Rachel for this great activity idea. Reader tips are what make this blog work 🙂

I wanted to share with you free activity that Lowe’s provides. It is their Build and Grow projects. Twice a month Lowe’s provides a small wooden project for kids of all ages to build. You get an official Lowe’s apron, safety goggles, and when you are finished you get a certificate of completion and a badge to sew onto your apron. Below is a link that explains the details and shows the upcoming projects. My kids ages 2,4, & 9 all enjoy it. The website says you have to sign up, the Monroe store does not require it. I just thought I would share, one bargain hunt!
