Every other weekend Lowes offers a free craft activity for kids where they build something out of wood. The craft is held on designated Saturdays at 10 am. You’ll need to RSVP to snag a spot for your kid.
Several stores in my area are already booked up as I write this, so if you’re really interested, you may need to drive a bit or just wait a couple weeks.
You’ll need to head over to the Lowe’s Build and Grow site and plug in your zip code to find a store near you. Then RSVP to reserve a spot for your kid. The kits used for these crafts are rated for children over 5. Kids get an apron, safety goggles and patch to keep. Tools are loaned to the kids to complete their project, which might be a wooden car, a birdhouse or coin bank.
The kits are also available to purchase if you missed out on a past project or just want to do it at home. They’re about $8, but don’t come with tools.
