Free Lowes Kids Workshops 2024

Keep your entertainment expenses low with free family fun! My kids always enjoyed attending the Free Lowes Kids Workshops when they were younger, and yours can, too. Get these dates on your calendar so you can be the first to register.

Free Lowes Classes for Kids

Most Lowe’s stores nationwide participate in free DIY classes and workshops for both kids and adults. Their new Workshops for Everyone program offers several each month.

This program was previously called Lowes Build and Grow. Now it’s Lowe’s DIY Kids Workshops.

Where do I find out about 2024 Lowes Kids Workshops?

Head to the Lowes Workshops site and put in your zip code to find a store near you. You’ll see the workshops listed for the current month.

When are the Lowes Kids Workshops?

Lowes Kids DIY Workshops are typically held the third Saturday each month from 10:00am – 1:00pm. You can show up anytime between those times as long as you’ve registered beforehand.

Plan to spend 15-30 minutes working on the monthly project.

Who are these free workshops for?

These free Kids DIY Workshops for kids are aimed at kids ages 4-11, though they do not check ages. I’ve seen kids both younger and older there, depending on the project. Just make a judgment call based on your child.

No matter what the child’s age, he or she must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the workshop.

New for 2024! DIY-U Kids Workshops at Lowes

What happens at a Lowes Workshop for Kids?

Kids are given a craft kit plus the space and tools to work on it. When a child finishes that day’s project, they receive an apron badge.

New for 2024–when your child completes 6 workshops, they’ll become a Junior Builder, receiving a special apron badge and certificate. After completing 12 workshops, they’ll become a Senior Builder and receive a free tool bag.

What kinds of Lowes kids projects are there?

Typically, the wooden project is themed for the month. Occasionally, it is something more general–like a game or vehicle. Scroll down to see this month’s project along with some upcoming ones.

How do we participate in a Lowes Workshop?

You do have to register ahead of time, because these events are very popular. It looks like they open registration for the following month on the second Saturday of the current month–before that month’s Kids Workshop. Set yourself a reminder to do it each month if your kids want to participate!

Keep in mind that ALL attendees need to be accompanied by a parent or adult at all times.

2024 Lowes Kids Workshop Dates

  • January 20 – My First DIY Tool Box
  • February 10 – Chalkboard Message Center
  • March 16 – Flower Bird Feeder
  • April 20 – Garden Cart Planter

What if we can’t make it to a Lowes Kids Workshop?

Great news! You can also attend free building workshops at Home Depot near you. There are lots of stores that offer free classes, crafts and workshops.

You can also purchase kids’ wooden project kits at the store, but I find that they are overpriced. You are better off buying your own wooden craft kit online, like these under $5 each.

please update the 2022 Lowes Kids Workshop list above. The dates listed are incorrect. April's kit is on April 16, May's is May 7th. Not sure where you are getting the listing. Lowes seems to be changing their workshop dates - not consistent - it used to be the 2nd Saturday of the month. Also it would be helpful to have registration date for the next workshop, which has been inconsistent as well. This gets to be very confusing

Thanks for the heads up! They did the second Saturday of the month for 10 years now, so I'm not sure why it has changed. I just updated May and June.

Do you have a schedule of what the projects will be for each month?


Saturday 18th of September 2021

Lowe's only announces each month's project a few days after the previous workshop.
