Lowes Build and Grow clinics are free classes offered by Lowes once or twice a month for children to build and create a designated project. These interactive workshops give children the opportunity to build a hands-on wooden project. To guarantee a spot in the workshop you must register your child in advance as there are limited number of kits available during each clinic. Click here for upcoming clinics at your nearest Lowes store. You must first create an account and register each of your children. During the clinic children receive a free apron and goggles in which they take home. Badges are given for each clinic they complete to be put on the apron. Child size hammers are also provided during the clinic, but are returned upon completion.
The clinic for the month of April was building a bird feeder. My children, Athen (4 years old) and Austin (2 years old) both enjoyed this workshop. Lots of guidance was needed for both children, but they both loved hammering in the nails and seeing the finished product. See below for pictures of our experience:
Age Range: Recommended for school-age children, however children 2 and up can participate with parental guidance throughout the clinic.
Pros: Free, Local, Seasonal projects, Projects can be given as gifts (ex. Mother’s Day), Fun for kids of all ages!
Cons: Classes fill up quickly and you must register soon after registration opens, Young children will need a lot of help which may be problematic if you have multiple young children.
