Free clinic for kids at Lowe's on the weekends

Every other Saturday, Lowe's stores nationwide offer a free "Build and Grow" clinic for kids. The clinic is recommended for kids in 1st through 5th grade (although younger kids will not be turned away - my 3-year-old loves this clinic).

The clinic goes from 10am - 11am, and kids can come in anytime during that hour to get a kit that includes all pieces and tools necessary to complete a wooden project (some examples of past projects: monster truck, bug box, and a coin bank).  Parents and children work on the project together (a Lowe's employee is there to oversee it, but do not lead the kids in the project).

The clinic and project are completely free (amazing considering how cute the projects are and how many they give out). You can register your child for the Build and Grow Clinic at the store or online (click here for registration).

Your child will be given an apron at his or her first clinic. At each clinic, kids will be given a project themed patch that can be sewn on the apron.

Below are some upcoming projects:

Saturday August 28th, 2010: School Bus

Saturday September 11th, 2010: Pet Leash Hanger

Note: Each Lowe's store gets 50 kits, and they are given out on a first come first serve basis so it's best to arrive as close to 10 (or slightly before) as possible.

For More Information: Call your local Lowe's store. Click here for a store locator search.
