With another school year coming to a close, you may be looking for free activities for your kids. For kids who like to build things (what kid doesn’t like to build things?), home improvement stores have some great solutions.
Lowe’s Build and Grow Clinics, held Saturday mornings at 10:00, are for “recommended” for first- through fifth-graders. A wooden project kit, goggles, and apron are free for the first 50 to register and show up at the appointed time. Upcoming projects include a catapult and a racecar. The site lists workshops this weekend and next weekend.
Home Depot also offers free workshops for kids age five to twelve on the first Saturday of each month. At the June workshop, kids will build a wooden soccer game. In addition to the kit, kids also receive a free apron and achievement pin.
Have you and your kids participated in a past workshop? If so, what did you think? Do you know of any other stores that offer free activities for kids?
