What's your idea of an epic summer playdate with your family?
Are you the type of family that would start their day at the local skate park, followed by a BBQ and overnight camping adventure in the backyard?
How about a hike, or bike ride up in the mountains, or day of boogie boarding at the beach?
Or maybe a day of discovering dinosaurs at the natural history museum is more your family's idea of fun?
I have to admit that I'm more of an indoor fun type of mom, and I recently found an amazing activity that is fun for the whole family, and did I mention free?!?
My idea of an epic playdate with my children, would start off with a trip to Lowe's hardware store, for a session of Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic. Every other weekend, Lowe's provides the space, tools & materials for your kids to build an awesome wooden project.
You get to make projects like this!!! How cute is that?!?
You are given an instruction booklet, hammer, bag of nails, bag of wooden pieces, and any embellishments needed for finishing touches, such as stickers. If it is your first time attending, you are also given safety goggles and an apron. I'll show you down below why the aprons are so awesome!
The reason why I love the aprons, are because of these!
For every Lowe's Build and Grow Clinic you attend, you are given an iron-on patch to apply to your apron! We saw children at the clinic with tons of patches. What a great memento to save, and later reflect on, when your children get older. My children now have two patches(we also attended the Scarers clinic) and I'll definitely be saving their aprons, as part of their childhood memories!
Upcoming clinics include the following:
Saturday, July 13th at 10am and Sunday, July 14th at 2pm
Disney * Pixar Toy Story Pizza Planet Truck
Saturday July 27th at 10am and Sunday, July 28th at 2pm
Disney * Pixar Toy Story RC
Space is limited, so I highly recommend registering online in advance here.
After our exciting morning of good ole' fashion family fun, we would come back home and watch.....

Does this sound like an epic summer playdate to you?
If so, I suggest hopping into a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, and head to Lowe's!
Interested in what other bloggers epic summer playdates are?
Take a look at this post and video from Maggie over at Mighty Girl. She shares her epic summer playdate, celebrating her son's birthday on her sister's farm.
