Build a Wooden Castle at Lowe's (or a Dinosaur)

We love going to these Lowe's Build & Grow Clinics. We have been taking my daughter since she was about  2 1/2, even though the recommended age starts at 1st grade. Often friends will ask if it is appropriate to take their younger kids and my response is: As long as you are prepared to do a lot of the assembling and let them hammer (and put on stickers) you are fine. If you go there expecting a child under 1st grade to be able to do it all themselves it will be a miserable experience, but if you go there with the expectation that they can hammer part of the way when they are 2 1/2 (& you might get your thumb hammered) then it can be an enjoyable experience for both of you.

On January 14th, Lowe's will be offering a Build & Grow Clinic for a Wooden Castle with a working drawbridge and paper characters (check out the pink princess! As soon as my daughter saw that it was a no-brainer!)

Then on January 28th, they will be offering the chance to build a wooden (they all are!) Buildasaurus Dinosaur.

Kids that are in 1st grade and older should be able to do most of this unassisted, but if you have more than 1 kids under 1st grade you may want to have more than one adult. It is a much more pleasant experience if you can work with them one-on-one.
