Back to why I LOVE our local Lowes so much...They went above and beyond for this project! Not only did he get to make his own cute lil firetruck, receive his own lil Lowe's apron....they also had both the local Fire Dept and Police come out so the kids could tour the real firetruck and visit with the officers and fireman. The police dept also provided a super cute backpack bag with their name and phone number, coloring books/crayons, stickers, and a lil policecar that he has enjoyed playing with. After we left we went to another local Lowes (I had to return something) and quickly recognized they didnt have all the "lil extras" of the real firemen and policemen with their Grow and Build workshop that we got to experience. So a special thanks to Lowes SW McKinney for making our Saturday morning extra special.
Here is our final product:
The firman also gave out hats.
A fireman offered Brayden to put on his firecoat for a picture but unfortunately Brayden declined saying..."it's too big." Instead he rang the bell on the front of the truck...4x because "4's my favorite number! (why is 4 your favorite number?) Cause I'm 4!"
Despite both of us being a lil under the weather today, we had the best time and can't wait to go to another Grow and Build workshop.
P.S. I know Home Depot has children's workshops as well. They offer their workshop the first Saturday of each month at 9am or 12. Here is the link for their upcoming projects. From what I read, it doesn't look like you have to preregister for Home Depot.
