Fun, FREE, Activities for kids!

I have recently discovered the Lowe's Build and Grow workshops. Where have I been?

For those of you that are like me and do not know what this is, Lowe's Home Improvement has a workshop for kids every Saturday morning. Its FREE!!!!

The suggested age is usually like 5yrs old, I think, however I have taken my girls for the past two weeks and they did fine with help from mommy and daddy.
(My girls are 4yrs and almost 3yrs)

The first week that we went they made a baseball game. This was really exciting for them since they have never done any woodworking before and also because daddy plays ball.

Then last weekend the project was a See It Grow Flower box. This is really cute. After putting the boxes together, the girls were given dirt and tomato seeds to plant in their boxes.

We have now set the boxes on the deck so that the girls can keep a check on them. They were really excited because now they have their very on tomato garden.

Today's project is a bird feeder. My girls are excited to make this one because we have lots of bird feeders hanging around our yard so now they will have their own.

If you have a Lowe's Hardware near you and little ones, you should really check out the Build and Grow workshops. Add a little family time and best its FREE!
