Looking for something to do during the weekends with your children? Well if your child is in grades 2 – 5 then here is something that you might want to consider.
We love the idea, and are happy to spread the word about Safety Saturday and Build to Grow workshops by Lowes.
FREE: Lowes is hosting a “Safety Saturday” on September 25th. This event will be held in every store throughout Canada, the US and Mexico. It will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the parking lots of Lowes in all of North America. The aim of the event is to educate parents and children on the importance of safety. The Safety Fair will be a valuable resource for families as it will give home safety ideas and project starters to help you rid yourself of hidden dangers that might exist at home.
Everyone will have a chance to ask questions, get advice, suggestions and information on how to keep families safe from fires and other home issues. Local experts will be on hand to impart guidance and answers.
Additionally, at 10:00 am, every store in the United States and Canada will be offering a Build and Grow workshop that not only will address home safety but also will allow children to build a wooden fire truck to take home. We have been fortunate to explore, build and play with the fire truck. It is pretty easy to put together thanks to the clear bilingual instructions that came with the truck (by the way, great job on the translation, finally a document that is well done in Spanish!). The end result is a wonderful and wooden fire truck that has a great siren built in it!
Each participant also receives a free apron, goggles, a project themed patch, and a certification of merit upon completion of their project.Each participant also receives a free apron, goggles, a project themed patch, and a certification of merit upon completion of their project.
Although we had fun putting it together, and it was a great activity for the family, we are going to register to get the full feeling and complete instruction that comes with the workshop and the events. We don’t want to miss a thing!
The Build to Grow workshops will be offered bi-weekly and can host up to 50 children, so hurry and register at www.lowesbuildangrow.com for a hands-on fun experience.
The events and the clinics are FREE of charge, don’t forget.
