2009/104: Build & Grow

We took the girls to the Build & Grow clinic at Lowe’s on Saturday, since we didn’t have a soccer game that day, and we had nothing else planned. It was the second time that we went, and they got to build a bird house this time.
When they finished, one of the Lowe’s employees even gave them some bird seed. He was going to fill it into the little bird feeder on the front of the birdhouse, but come on, what kind of stupid idea is that?! The kids are going to spill the bird seed all over the car on the way home!  Thankfully one of the bags that the birdhouse kits came in, was still in good shape, and I had him put the bird seed into the bag.
(Sorry for the picture overload…. well… not really 😉 )


Listening to Daddy’s instructions



Hmmm… which finger should I smack with the hammer?

Casualties (Sara hit these just a little too hard!)

  1. Aww, so cute! That was a really fun project. Did the girls paint their bird houses yet?

  2. No, not yet. Saturday afternoon got a little busy, so I told them they could paint them on Sunday… but then they decided to be little pains-in-the-you-know-where and didn’t get to paint.

  5. They knew the camera was there… they did their best to ignore it 😉

    They look like they did a great job! They must have been so proud of themselves. I can’t wait to see how creative they get with their painting.

    Those workshops always seem so fun. I’m glad you have had such good experience with them. When my boys get just a tad older I will definitely try them out.

  8. Your husband is a brave man, holding the goods while the wee one is armed with a hammer 🙂
