04/14/2014. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

lowes

 

Registration is open for the next Lowe’s Build and Grow Clinic, which will be held on Saturday, May 10th at 10am.

It is always best to sign up for these right away because they do fill up really fast.

At this clinic, your kids will build a little Mother’s Day Flower Delivery Truck which is just adorable.

You must register before you attend. The kids should get an apron, all the supplies for the clinic and a few other goodies.

In my experience these are super popular so note once you register you will get a confirmation email with a form.  Make sure to print that out and try to get to Lowe’s as close to 10am as you can.

See some additional activities to do with the kids this week here.

Free Bowling for Children All Summer

04/02/2014. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

kidsbowlfree

Kid’s can bowl free all summer long with the Kids Bowl Free Program.  Select bowling alleys offer 2 free games every day of the summer!  That works out to a $500 value so a great deal.

Head over here to find out if you live near a participating bowling alley.  Once you find one, sign up each child for the program. A coupon should be emailed to you each week to use.  It does not look like shoe rentals are included.

Dates vary by location so just be sure to read all the information.

Also, ages vary. I checked some locations and they were 18 and under but I also saw some areas that only allowed 15 and under.

You might also check out the free Summer Fun List printables here.  It’s a great way to be intentional with your summer.
