IT'S TOTALLY FREE!
You can pre-register online, or you can just walk in and sign up there. Sign the little waiver saying you won't sue them if your kids gets hurt, they hand over the safety goggles, work apron, hammer and the kit and you are on your way to a wonderful bonding experience with your children. I have taken the kids twice now. The first time, they made a cool little wooden race car that transforms into a robot. Thank goodness for Evan's Lego building experience. I had a little confusion over a step in the instructions, but he set me straight and got me back on track. Stop laughing. I was very frustrated and all the hammer pounding made it hard to concentrate.
The above photo conjurs up memories of chemistry lab in high school and college. How I hated those nasty goggles that made my face all sweaty with the tell-tale lines around my eyes. Not exactly "cool" during those "image is everything" years. The second time we went, on my birthday no less, we/they made cool little wooden basketball hoops. Next time they are making kaleidescopes. With soccer season upon us, I know our availability to attend these Saturday morning events will soon come to an end, so I want to take advantage of the opportunities I have to take the kids. Children love to make things...to create; whether it's a card for a friend's birthday, cookies in the kitchen, a Play-doh creation, or real building with a hammer and nails. Give them the opportunity as often as you can.
