Tomorrow's little builders

One of things I like to do with my son on the weekends is attend some of the free building workshops that are available locally. If you haven't checked any of these out, I highly recommend you give them a shot.
     Lowe's and Home Depot both offer kids workshop clinics. They usually hold them on Saturday mornings and they take about 15 minutes but it's a great excuse to get some of your shopping done and give your kids something to enjoy and bring home with them. You can usually just walk into the Home Depot clinics, Lowe's limits the number of participants so it's best to sign up online beforehand to ensure your child has a spot.
     Most of the projects involve simple wood, glue, nails and screws to assemble anything from firetrucks to bird houses. They tend to be relevant to each season and both stores provide a list of upcoming clinics so your kids can choose the ones they want to attend. They even give the kids a little apron and either badges or pins for each clinic they successfully complete.
