One of the most fulfilling things about being a parent is that you can mold and teach your child to be anything they want to be. That process starts young and there are many community businesses that help with that development.
Lowe’s is not a store just for grown-ups, but it offers “BUILD and GROW” clinics FREE to the public for kids every other Saturday at 10am. Kids are given an apron and a little patch each time they finish a project. It’s a great way to teach your kids that they can build and create what they want with the materials given. It also builds self-esteem as they see the work of their hands.
Look for a Lowes near you and sign up register online for a clinic.
