Lowe’s offers free weekend workshops to kids nationwide

February 10, 2020

Is your child interested in woodworking or do-it-yourself projects? Lowe’s Companies—a home improvement chain that operates more than two thousand locations nationwide— has announced that it will now offer free, monthly Kids’ Workshops at every U.S. store beginning Saturday, February 8.

Starting with a ‘Love Note Holder’ project this coming weekend, each workshop welcomes families on a drop-in basis from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and will regularly be held on the second Saturday of each month, while supplies last. Families can register at Lowes.com/DIY.

These specially designed workshops are for kids ages 4-11, accompanied by a parent who will participate in the project. However, all ages are welcome with the supervision of a parent or guardian. Workshops are facilitated by Lowe’s Workshop Captains, represented by Lowe’s store associates, who oversee the projects. Each participant will receive a free apron, project merit patch, goggles, and wooden project kit that takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete.

“We want to inspire the next generation of do-it-yourselfers and our Kids’ Workshops offer a meaningful way for customers and their families to learn new skills together,” said Scott Draher, a vice president in Lowe’s store operations in a formal press release. “Our store associates are enthusiastic to share their advice and help build the confidence of future DIYers, and with a variety of seasonal projects, we look forward to seeing families participate month after month.”

Among the upcoming DIY Kids’ Workshops projects are the following:

  • February 8 – Love Note Holder
  • March 14 – Tabletop Basketball
  • April 11 – Bulldozer
  • May 9 – Wheelbarrow Planter
  • June 13 – Birdhouse
  • July 11 – Triceratops

Lowe’s also offers in-store DIY Workshops and Women’s Workshops, which are designed to motivate and empower customers to build, fix, or plan their next home improvement project. All workshops offer demonstrations, teaching aides, and materials.
