If you are looking for something fun to do with the kiddos this weekend, you can make a Build-A-Saurus at the Lowes Build and Grow Clinic!

The clinic is FREE and is Saturday, 1/28, at 10 am, but you need to register now to make sure you’ll have a spot.

Each participant gets a free apron, goggles, project-themed patch for the work apron, and a certificate of completion.

      I got all the way to the last page of the sign up before it said that the recommended age is 1st-5th grades.  I could probably get away with taking my kindergartner  but not my 3 year old.  Bummer!  I was looking forward to a fun Saturday morning activity!

          The age is a recommendation. I have been taking my boy since he was two. With the practice he has had, at age 4 he now assembles many of the projects solo while we help his sister (now just age 2). Store associates started asking if she wanted a project at about 18 months.
          At the really young ages, the kids need help with everything but they still learn. The youngest kids can put the nails in the holes, find pieces shown in the picture directions, and swing the hammer (with a parent’s hand helping guide it).
          This looks like a perfect starter project for younger folks. More complicated ones you may wish to bypass or get one to split between two, because of limited attention spans.

        My husband started taking my son to these during the summer last year. He had just turned 4. Basically, my husband is the one who is building whatever it is they’re making, but he lets my son “help” by lining the wood up, or holding it in place as my husband taps the tiny nails in. He taps the nails to the point where they’re practically in, but then lets my son finish the job so that he has a hand in the whole thing. There is nothing sweeter than seeing my two men walk through the door with their latest “project”. My son is always excited about what they built. I wouldn’t let the age thing stop you, as long as you think your son will enjoy “helping” instead of doing most it himself. :-)

        I have been doing this for the past year, my kids are 2 -1/2 and 4!!!!  They love it!…my younger one (a girl) puts the nails in the hole and then we hammer together. My older one can almost do it himself! I would recomend you have an adult for each child it makes it easier then trying to help both at once…but you should totally take them both!!!

        our son will be 4 in April and we’ve been taking him for almost a year now and they’ve never denied us due to his age and he loves it

        I run the build and grow clinics at our store. As long as they can hold a hammer, bring them in. I never question the ages. They all have a great time.
