build and grow.

hubs has been deployed for almost a year and i'm just now getting around to taking advantage of the local freebies? what?
it's true. {have you tried toting four rambuncious kiddos into...anywhere lately?}
mckinley is just at the age where she will hold my hand and {sometimes} obey to perfection...the boys are a whole 'nother story.

have you heard of this workshop at your local lowe's home improvement store???
it's called build and grow.
and it's completely free.

at your childs first workshop he/she will get an apron {similar to the one the employees wear}
a kit to build
a completion certificate
a patch to sew onto his/her apron

each workshop you attend after your first your child receives everything except for a new apron.

we went to our first workshop at the beginning of january.
i only took jake and mckinley cause the other two boys were at another fabulous free program offered on post, super saturday.
i knew it was something jake would love.
i had no idea mckinley would love it as much as she did.

check them out in action...
whew! this is hard work...
their completed boxes looked like this...
fun, right?!?!

the next workshop is january 22. the kit the kiddos will build is a ball toss game.
the first workshop for february is on the 12th. the kit is a valentine's day music neat is that? and free!
my kiddos are already signed up for both.
{you have to sign up early...the workshops fill up quick!}

*you have to register online.
*the workshops are twice a month.

what do you do for fun? that's free.

We love the Lowes' and Home Depot's kids workshops!! Also, another freebie Madeline and I like is story time at the library. Since Kaylie is in school, she doesn't get to go to story time, but I let her check out books about twice a month.
