Lowe's Build and Grow Workshops Overview:

The Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics give children the chance to learn how to build something out of wood. Kids get to take their newly-built project home, and they also receive a project-themed patch and certification of merit for their hard work. Lowe's lists the next two Build and Grow Clinics on its website.

Cost to Attend:

Every Lowe's Build and Grow workshop is free. Goggles, aprons, tools and building supplies to complete the project are provided.

Age Recommendations:

Most clinics are held for first through fifth graders. Parents are required to stay with their children, so most locations will allow you to help children 5 and under build a project as well.

Lowe's Build and Grow Helpers:

Store employees guide kids through each step of the project. Parents are encouraged to assist their children as well.

Types of Projects:

Past clinics have helped kids build a variety of wooden projects, including:
  • Bird feeders
  • Helicopters
  • Kaleidoscopes
  • Race cars
  • Schoolhouses
  • Tabletop basketball sets
  • Treasure chests
  • Trellis planters

Dates and Times:

The Lowe's Build and Grow workshops are held every Saturday at 10 a.m. Projects take about an hour to complete.

Signing Up for a Free Clinic:

There is a limit of 50 kids per clinic. Online registration is recommended to reserve spaces for your children.

A three-step online registration process lets you select the workshop you want to attend, how many kids you'll be bringing and the location you'll be visiting. After you fill out your kids' names, ages and genders as well as your mailing info, phone number and email address, your children will have their spots reserved for the upcoming workshop.
