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.
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.
Lowes Kids DIY Workshops are held on the second Saturday of each month from 9:00am – Noon. You can show up anytime before 11:00am as long as you've registered beforehand. Plan to spend 15-30 minutes working on the monthly project.
Kids are given a craft kit plus the space and tools to work on it. Keep that in mind so you don't show up too late in the session! All kids get to keep their craft, receive a FREE certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron and a commemorative pin while supplies last.
Typically, the wooden project is themed for the month. Occasionally, it is something more general–like a game or vehicle.
