by Joanne We have been renovating our house since we moved in 6 years ago. Little by little we are making our Money Pit into our dream home. Which means that we spend a lot of time (and money) in home improvement stores. A few months ago, a Lowe's opened in Orleans so my husband eagerly went to check it out! He came home excited and full of great ideas for our next batch of renovations.
On one of of many trips to Lowes since it opened we were introduced to the Lowe's Build and Grow clinics designed for children in grades 2 to 5 - they do not restrict the age of the participants - my 5 year old just loves every project and looks forward to the next.
There is a maximum of 50 kids per session and they are held every other week. I suggest calling in advance or stopping by the customer service desk to inquire about the next available clinic. Upcoming projects include Halloween theme - like a fun house mirror or Christmas projects like a Holiday Train.
Together we have made a firetruck, a ball and cup game as well as a school bus. The kids enjoy building these great toys and are so proud of the finished project they made themselves!
