I know I've blogged about the Lowes Clinic for Kids
before. Kids get a free apron, a badge for a completed project, protection goggles (that they don't really need, but look fun), and a certificate.
We love it; except for the times when Mommy's finger gets nailed, or something gets nailed on the wrong way. Two times ago my finger got nailed; I got a blood blister. Last week two major parts got nailed on wrong.
See the side piece that holds the wings on? Yep those pieces got nailed on backwards. Mica was determined that they went on the way he put them on. I was silly enough to trust his instincts. He's so good with building. Then they had to rip them apart. We had to put them back together the right way. That's all part of it; learning!
So have you seen Rise of the Guardians
? I haven't. Is it good? Mica's been playing it at recess; he hasn't even seen it yet.
The boys sometimes refuse to have their aprons tied. Isaak likes to wear his in the back. He says, "It's a super hero cape Mommy! I'm super hero Lowes Clinic!" Mica just doesn't want to mess with the tie.
Let me tell ya they get so excited for their new badge. I just iron that badge on with my flat iron. It works great!
They also fly around their toy for a long time. The check out person by the door smiled as we walked out of the store. Why? Because the boys were flying around their planes and making a whole lot of sound effects to go with it.
This Saturday they are building this:
Show up and you can probably build one to. They usually have extra kits; when their website says they are full.
