Build & Grow

We've been taking our girls to the Build & Grow Clinics for almost a year now and I can't believe I haven't blogged about it! (At least, I don't think I have Ü) Build & Grow is a workshop clinic that is put on by Lowe's. Children can build simple wooden projects/toys on their own to take home and keep. Each child receives an apron and goggles and after completing each project they receive a certificate and a specific merit badge for what they built that can be sewn onto heir aprons! It's a great confidence builder and my girls love going. What's even better is that it's free! You can go to your local Lowe's and sign up or you can sign up at www.lowesbuildandgrow.com. My brother-in-law works at a Lowe's in Ca and he says you can actually just do a walk-in too. The project our girls did today was a really cool one because it's part 1 of a 3 part train they'll be doing for the month of December...they can't wait to complete it. We seriously love us some Build & Grow. Ü
