Lowe's Build & Grow Field Trip ~ Waving Flag

 Chestnut Grove Academy Field Trip Friday Blog Hop
Last week we took Unicorn and Ladybug to the Lowe's Build & Grow Workshop. They each built a "Waving Flag" and had a TON of fun! They loved being able to use a hammer!

    The girls really like it...they made me sign them up for more! Home Depot
    does workshops too! Good luck!

    Thanks Anna-Marie! Other than Monkey, they chose their own blog names! They had a great time at the workshop and keep asking Dad to take them to the garage and build stuff!

  5. We used to love to go to these when the kids were younger.  What fun!

    Visiting and following from the Crew...

    Hi April! Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Looks like fun!  And your girls look very proud of their creations! 

    I always considered myself un-handy with tools, but I've learned a lot being a Cub Scout mom!  I think everyone should have some experience with basic building tools.  We'll have to check out the Lowe's workshops in our area!

    Hi Sparklee, thanks for stopping by! Cub Scouts is definitely an adventure! I agree...basic tool use is a must (as is basic cooking, cleaning and laundry skills)! :)

  9. I've always been interested in those classes at Lowes and Home Depot--your daughter's faces are the encouragement I need to go check out the class schedule.
