A Little Trip to Lowes

So this past weekend, I manned up & took the middle boy to Lowes for their free workshop for kids 1st - 5th grade. Middle boy is going into 4th grade so he is the perfect age.

This weeks project was to make a Tetherball.
Here he is getting the base on.
Still banging the base on.
I think he is tying the string onto the pole in this shot. Looks intent doesn't he???
Tapping it all in.
Finally, the finished project.
All in all, he had a good time & even asked to make a second one. The lady let him b/c there really wasn't anyone else there. I told Chris maybe we could do one that was easier in the future & he actually said he wanted to do one that was more challenging!


He is a smart cookie that kid!!!!!
So I will see what ones are coming up & sign him up.
He also got a certificate & a patch. The cert would be cute for a younger kid but the patch was cool.


So, if you have kids, check out Lowes or Home Depot for these fabu workshops. They are fun, not a ton of time & free.
Ya know what they say...if it's free, it's for me.
That's my motto. Hee hee.



Woops out!
