Lowe’s Kids Workshop Kits – Free DIY Projects Available Each Month

Lowes Kids Workshop

Sign up to bring your mini-DIYer into Lowe’s for a FREE kids workshop with a new theme each month. From wooden bird feeders to fire trucks, interactive games to Mother’s Day gifts, every month your local store highlights a different project and gives you a free kit with all the materials needed.

Each Lowe’s Kids’ Workshop is a free in-store event designed to inspire the next generation of builders while growing their confidence and DIY skillset. The recommended ages for Lowe’s DIY Kits are 4-11 but all ages are welcome, the supervision of a parent and/or guardian is required for all participants. Lowe’s DIY Kids’ Workshops and free take-home kits are available to anyone who registers, no purchase is required.

Lowe’s DIY Kids Workshops were formerly the FREE Lowe’s Build + Grow Workshops. We are excited these workshops are back for monthly in-person events at Lowe’s!

For more free activities check out Home Depot Kids Workshops and our list of Free Things to Do Near You.

Lowe’s Kids Workshop Details

Workshops are hosted by a Lowe’s expert on Saturday mornings once a month. Registration is required, you’ll select time slots from 9:00am – 12:00pm and have a 1 hour window to come in and enjoy a hands on project with your kiddos alongside other workshop participants. {We don’t know how strict the times are, check with your local store if you have a scheduling issue}.

If you prefer to build your kit at home, you can also choose the 12:00pm – 8:00pm time slot and stop by to pickup a Lowe’s kids workshop kit from the Customer Service Desk and enjoy building your kit at home.

The best part is that there is a new kit for every workshop, so set a reminder to register and enjoy a free DIY kid’s project each month!

Lowe’s Kids Workshop Registration

All registration is done on the Lowe’s site – look for the KIDS tab. You’ll need to select a store near you and then register for an upcoming kids workshop. There is typically only one workshop open for registration at a time, although sometimes the next 2-3 months’ projects are also shown. Registration opens at 12:01am EST on the registration date listed.

We’ve seen some Lowe’s kids kits fill up the day they open, and others still have space available just a few days out from the workshop date. If your regular Lowe’s store is full and you don’t mind driving, you can always check a nearby Lowe’s for kids’ workshop openings.

Upcoming Lowes DIY Kids Workshop Dates

Upcoming projects are listed below, check your local Lowe’s DIY page for upcoming in-store workshop dates and registration dates. Registration opens anywhere from 1 week to 3 weeks in advance of the workshop, be sure to set a reminder and sign up for this awesome freebie for kids!
