Free Lowe’s DIY Kid’s Kit – Kinetic Sandbox on July 20

Registration is now open online for a free DIY kid's workshop to be held on Saturday, July 20 from 10am-1pm. Here's the signup link.

Lowe's has brought back their popular free kid's projects with DIY kits available every 2nd weekend of each month! The suggested child's age ranges for the Lowe's DIY Kits are between 4-11. All supplies and instructions are included, making it a fun children's task to complete.

However, this year they're also offering something new – attend the Kids' Workshops regularly and earn badges towards a free tool bag! The nitty gritty fine print can be found here, but long story short once you've earned twelve badges, you'll be issued a promotional code redeemable online for a free kid's tool bag or product of similar value.

So what's the upcoming workshop going to build?

July Event: Kinetic Sandbox

Dive into a world of sun, sand, and imagination with Lowe's! Perfect for budding engineers and outdoor enthusiasts, kids can dig-in, design, and build their own kinetic sand playground. From towering castles to winding roads, the possibilities are endless! Not only will your mini-DIYer interact with fun STEM concepts; they'll also develop important motor skills and sensory awareness as they manipulate the sand. Join us for a day of sandbox adventures where creativity knows no bounds!

These look so cool – and they actually work! 8 year old Goob would have loved this toy and 40 year old Goob would totally pick it up late at night after all the kids had fallen asleep.

Lowe's Kids Workshop History

For over a decade, the free Lowe's Build & Grow workshop clinics were a staple monthly freebie. Just like the free Home Depot Kids Workshop, you could take your children to Lowe's on certain weekends and come away with a cool, custom built freebie. They were in-store workshops though, where attendees could make awesome projects right in Lowe's with the provided tools, safety gear, and work space. Then 30 minutes later the kids would always get to take home the cool toy craft they just made along with a collectible commemorative pin. They even gave coupons and discounts to workshop participants!

They shut the program down in 2017, but eventually brought them back and are still going strong in 2024. I really hope you and your family are able to keep enjoying these freebies for many years to come!
