Want to get the kids out of the house? Take them to one (or all) of these free events taking place on Saturday, Feb. 27:

Lowe’s Build & Grow Workshop – Kids can make a free LoweBot (a car that turns into a robot) at their local Lowe’s from 10-11 a.m. Go to www.lowesbuildandgrow.com to find your store and RSVP.

Veggie Tales Movie – take your kids to a local Family Christian Store for a screening of the Veggie Tales movie, “Pistachio: The Little Boy that Woodn’t.” The show is free, and the first 40 kids receive a poster and balloon. Everyone gets free coloring pages and stickers. Showtimes are 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. If you decide to do some shopping, take along a coupon for 20 percent off your entire purchase.

Michael’s Craft – From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at your local Michael’s craft store on Feb. 27, your kids can participate in a “Science Fair Make-It Take-It” workshop. They can build a free 3D molecule model using Crayola products, while supplies last. The store will also be doing a “science explorer demonstration” where kids can set up a color mixing lab, grow crystals and more. As always, call your store ahead of time to make sure they’re participating.

Thanks to My Dallas Mommy for the heads up on the Veggie Tales event.
