Lowes Build and Grow

Both Lowe's and Home Depot have programs for kids to come and build something in their store.  They have been doing this for years.  I actually signed Little Man and his dad up to attend a few way back in the day.  They aren't every week, and you do need to pre-register so you will want to check out their sites before just showing up.  The best part--they are free.  Technically the suggested age is 5, but I know a lot of people that take their two year olds.  We were itching to get out of the house, so I thought we'd go ahead and give it a try.

This weeks project was a recycling truck.
Obviously it was a little above Olivia, but she didn't seem to mind. Michael held her hand and guided the hammer for her.

She liked putting the nails in the holes too.

Daddy's can do anything! :)

This guy drank a bottle and then hung out in his seat as content as can be.

Registration opens Monday for the next Lowe's event on May 10th.  I've heard it fills up fast depending on your area, so if you are interested you will want to sign up right away.  We have a schedule conflict that day. Plus, it isn't something we will be doing every time because of Olivia's age.  But we will definitely do another one.  Hopefully something fun like a bird house or something.

It looks like you can register for a Home Depot event for either May 3rd or June 7th.  Happy building!

 You can also purchase other types of kits and build them at home. They also have little aprons and safety goggle kids you can buy.  You know... if you become hard core builders. :)
