Lately our Girl Scout troop has been going to Lowe’s Build and Grow events. These are fun and free, which is a complete bonus! You will need to register your child for the events. Lowe’s website makes everything easy. Click on the link and search for your city. I changed mine to Hawaii for this post. Once you find your local Lowe’s, click on register, and fill in the info.

Once you get there the kids will get an apron, and safety goggles. They have small hammers made for the kids to use. After you build the project kids are presented with a certificate and a patch for Scout uniforms. If you aren’t a scout, you can do what you want with it.

We have a nice little collection of wooden toys. Paige enjoys building them and getting to take it home. She proudly shows off what she’s made to everyone who’ll stand still for 30 seconds and look.
