Keep your kids busy for free with the help of upcoming events at local Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement stores and the Lego Store at Crabtree Valley Mall.
First up, mark your calendar for the Home Depot Kids Workshop this Saturday, March 3. From 9 a.m. to noon, kids ages 5 to 12 are invited to build a race car and learn tool safety.
The kids will also receive a free apron, pin and certificate.

Next up, the Lego Store at Crabtree Valley Mall will hold its next Mini Model Build on Tuesday, March 6.
Lego fans ages 6 to 14 are invited to make a free miniature model. The build begins at 5 p.m. and continues while supplies last. This month's free miniature figurine is a Lego garden, complete with snake.
Looking ahead to next Saturday, March 10, Lowes Home Improvement will hold its next Build and Grow Clinic for children in first through fifth grades.
The project is a "carnival hoops" game. It looks like a miniature basketball goal with its own mini ball. The first 50 children present receive the building kits, aprons and safety goggles. Sign up online here.
