Build and Grow

We absolutely LOVE the Build & Grow Clinics at Lowe's! We first got into going to the program when my sister Chrystel suggested that we go. I put it off for a few sessions, not fully interested (and partially too lazy to get up at 9am on a Saturday lol), but finally decided to sign my girls up and take them. What a fun experience it was! My girls totally loved the first workshop...working with real tools and nails and even wearing goggles and getting an apron. After each workshop the girls are given a certificate of completion and a badge for that specific workshop that they can sew onto their aprons. We attended one workshop where a young girl had an apron chock-full of badges from all of the workshops she attended. From that point on, my girls (Sariah especially) were determined to earn as many badges as they could! We even made sure to sign up while we were in Ca so as not to miss a workshop! Lol We've been to all of the clinics since our first one and it's so much fun to build and to see what's on the calendar to build next! And the icing on the cake is that all of Lowe's Build & Grow Clinics are free! I'm definitely recommending this anyone who has kids. You can sign up at and reserve your spot for the next workshops. The clinics (workshops) are every 2 weeks and they always post the next craft two weeks in advance. Spaces usually fill up quickly, so sign up early!
