Free Lowe’s DIY Kid’s Heart Vase

Lowe's has figured out how to bring back the free kid's projects for the remainder of the pandemic. You can now register for a free DIY kid's kits to be picked up during the weekend of February 13 and 14.

Valentine’s Day is almost here! This month’s project is a great way to celebrate the holiday! Space is limited, so register today!

Reserved kits can be picked up in-store at our customer service desk on Saturday, February 13th or Sunday, February 14th. If your kit is not picked up by 8 p.m. on Sunday, it may be given to a non-registered customer.

To register, click the blue “Find an Event Near You” button under “DIY Kids' Workshops” and locate your nearby Lowe's.

This is a pretty cool way to keep these monthly freebies going while also being safe from covid!

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 shut the program down in 2017, so it's really nice to see them bring it back!

  1. I reserved 2 free DIY fire truck kits. I got the email from Lowe’s saying they were in and to come pick it up on oct. 10th or 11th. I went yesterday (oct 10th) to pick the kits up and She said “they didn’t have any left“ … even though I had reserved them a month in advance. I was so disappointed. I explained that I had reserved two kits in September and got an email confirmation etc. she said well, they’re all gone. If you reserve something and get an email saying to come pick the items up, then the it end should be there waiting… very disappointed.

    • Darn, I’m really sorry to hear you had such a terrible experience with this free event, Alicia! I would be pretty disappointed if they did this to me as well.

      • I reserved the bulldozer kits the following month. I didn’t have any problem with that one at all. They asked for my name and for proof that I had reserved it and I showed them the email confirmation and they handed me the kits . They were organized and making sure the people that reserved them got them. I feel like a lot of people must have complained about the fire truck issues bc they were going by the book the following month.

  2. My niece loves these. Just because it’s not on their website for signup doesn’t mean you can’t just show up and sign the paperwork there. They always have plenty.

    • At my store, we run out of the 100 kits they send us each time, usually our registrations are booked up 2 weeks before the clinic. We BEG that you please sign up in advance, nothing like getting there and breaking a kids heart because we ran out of kits.

  3. We made a puppet theater too! They had a firetruck there, the kids watched a fire safety movie, and we made a puppet theater! I guess Punch and Judy were booked!

  4. we went to our lowe’s today – it was supposed to be fire truck day. turns out the fire truck kits were recalled and we got to make a puppet theater. not nearly as awesome as a fire truck, but they did have all the emergency vehicles there so I guess that was cool.

  5. My mother does the Lowe’s Build & Grow in Staunton, VA. Tomrrow is her HUGE yearly firetruck edition (the kids build a firetruck, and she lines up fire, police, and rescue squad participation), Half the parking lot is blocked off so the kids can see the service vehicles. This year she mentioned that this thing is becoming even bigger, with raffles for ATVs (from a third party to raise money for some org.) and other cool stuff going on. She thinks she may have created a monster….

  8. We have been taking our children to Build-N-Grow at our local Lowes for a year now- and my kids LOVE it!! Addie started when she was 3, and now can complete the projects all by herself. I HIGHLY recommend this, especially for any homeschooled children!

  9. You should definitely check with your local Lowe’s to find out if you absolutely have to register beforehand. We don’t require it at our store and we usually have around 100 kids every other Saturday. Don’t want anyone to miss out some last minute Saturday morning fun, thinking they can’t come play because they didn’t register!

  10. My 6 Year Old LOVES these projects. He gets has done the Tic Tac Toe Board, Piggy Bank, and he did the Jewelry Holder for me for Valentine’s day. He is saving and collecting the Patches they give you at each one as well. I think it is great that they offer this. He is really looking forward to his Lowebot tomorrow and the tabletop basketball in a couple of weeks!

  11. Hey Its Free said:

    I once ate three dog treats before somebody told me they weren’t beef jerky. So in all, I ate five.

    LOL! That’s the funniest thing I’ve read online in some time. Applause Applause

  12. I have done several with my kiddos and it is a great bonding experience. For those new people out there that want to give it a try with their kiddos, don’t expect a big project. These are just small kits that the kids put together, but well worth the bonding.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone!!!!!!!!

  13. Gotta say, Goob, you rock! Went and got the Halo dog treats last night at Petco and only had to pay the tax. My kids are signed up for the Lowe’s Build and Grow clinic this weekend, where they are making…a dog treat holder!! So, Christmas for Grandpa with the 2 dogs is taken care of for free and handmade by his grandkids – sweet! Thanks for all the deals you uncover, and for making me laugh every day!

  15. This is the first time we went- besides the FREE project we got a patch that showed the project to sew on the FREE Lowes apron(kids size)– it was a really fun – thanks for letting us know about it.

  16. This sounds like the perfect “get the kids out of the house so Mommy can have a little me time” Sunday afternoon excursion that my Dad used to take us on, except we didn’t have stores like this, so we went to a lot of museums and hiked in the mountains, both of which tended to tire us out.

  17. Upon completing this project, the kiddos received a patch and a certificate. Also, the Lowes people were wandering around and providing assistance and when the planter was finished, the kids got to fill it with soil and a couple of little grass type plants. Our Lowes had child-sized hammers for the kids to use for this project, also, which did make it a bit easier for the little ones. I forgot to ask them if they sell those there. I’d like to have some of those for our home workshop.

    The Lowes instructions were English on one side and Spanish on the other. There were a couple of images that weren’t quite right, so non-reading children need a little extra help to get it right if they’re not the engineering type that can figure out the logic of it themselves. For example, there is one that shows the nails going in on the side instead of on the front where the holes are drilled and where the nails would actually hold the pieces together.

    My kids enjoyed it very much and I liked that they got their own pair of safety goggles along with their apron. I highly recommend this freebie along with the Home Depot workshops mentioned last weekend. The kids really love this stuff.
