One of our new favorite activities to do with Bennet is the Build and Grow Clinic at Lowes. Lowes holds free clinics every Saturday, and kids get to make some pretty cool stuff! Bennet has made a window box planter and a bird feeder so far. He's had a lot of fun hammering and making noise and learning to build things. Andrew even gets to come with us, since they are on the weekends.
In addition to the project they make each week, Lowes gives each kid an apron to wear. Every time they complete a project, they get a patch to put on their apron. It reminds me of Boy Scouts, only I think it's even cuter! It's such a fun program to participate in. Bennet has had a blast so far, and I think it's something he'll like more and more as he gets older!
