Lowe's Build and Grow kids building classes are back. After a few years of hiatus, they are slowly bringing back these classes to their stores.

Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics are free classes, especially for kids, where they can build a different project every month and take it home for free.

When a child shows up at a Lowe's Build and Grow Clinic, they receive a free apron, goggles, participation patch, and project kit. Over the next hour, the child will be helped to complete the project, which was usually a fun game or toy.

Upcoming Build and Grow Clinics

Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics take place each month on a Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. These classes are drop-in style, so you'll just need to come before 11:00 a.m. to check-in. The clinics typically last 15-30 minutes.

For these building clinics, you would need to register your child in advance. Here are a few typical Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics. Check the website for dates and to register.

Select the number of children you're bringing and fill out your personal information and your child's name. You'll also need to agree to a legal waiver.

Types of Free Classes

There has been a wide selection of free classes at Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics for kids. Projects in the past have ranged from wooden toys, birdhouses, games, kaleidoscopes, treasure boxes, and more.

Usually, the projects at the Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics were ones that both boys and girls enjoyed.


Children need to be 5 or older to participate in the Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics, and parents need to stay and help with the project. One adult can bring a maximum of 5 children.

The clinics were open to children in the United States and Canada.

Other Free Building Classes for Kids

Home Depot has free building classes for kids every month. They take place the first Saturday of every month, and they get a free kid-sized apron, certificate of achievement, and commemorative pin. This is in addition to the free project they get to build in the class and take home with them.
