Note: I talked to both the Vienna and Marietta stores and they both ran out of kits before noon last week so come early if you want to be sure and get a kit.
LOWES build and Grow Clinic this week (Saturday Dec. 10 at 10:00 AM) will be making this coal car. The second in the train series. The engine isn't until next week though so even if you missed the caboose last week you can still get in on the train project and finish a decent little train. Go here to sign up for this free kids building clinic (but if you don't sign up you can still attend). What a fun project to get Christmas spirit running in your house.
Each child will receive all the items needed for their train as well as a free apron, goggles, a project themed patch, and a certificate when they complete their project.
Project designed for children in grades 2-5. (my 4 year old has been several times and there were TONS of kids his age there too . . . I would say the age is a guideline and if you are willing to help the child 4 and up is probably fine)
