Lowe's Build and Grow kids building classes have been canceled permanently. Keep reading to learn some great alternatives.

Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics was a free class especially for kids where they could build a different project every month and take it home for free.

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

Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics Have Ended

Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics operated for nearly 10 years so it was a surprise to many when they ended. 

They had a message on their website stating that they were over but gave no reason as to why.


If your kids want to learn how to build something, then you are not completely out of luck.

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.

Clinics of the Past

Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics were on every other Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. and they lasted around an hour. 

For these building clinics, you would need to register your child in advance. 

Types of Free Classes

There was 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 needed to be 5 or older to participate in the Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics and parents had to stay and help with the project.

The clinics were open to children in the U.S. and Canada.
