Each Build a Birthday party packages comes with "all the essentials of an awesome party," like safety goggles, aprons, and party construction hats, the company said.

On the website, parents can select the party date and then filter through the various package options — including which DIY project they’d like to do for the party. Some of the kit options include projects like wooden castles, race cars, or even a hanging chalkboard sign.
From there, Domino's pizza, drinks, and dessert options are also offered, followed by various party favors like T-shirts, water bottles, slap bracelets, fidget spinners, and backpacks. Food, beverage, and party favor items are all additional costs.

"Home improvement is about the whole family and that's why we have Weekending at Lowe's events every Saturday at our stores, including our kids' workshops that help us feel connected to our littlest DIYers," Jen Wilson, Lowe's senior vice president of enterprise brand and marketing, said in a statement. "And this launch is a natural extension of that relationship – not only do we want to inspire future builders, but we want DIY – and Lowe's – to be an integral part of family milestones and memories."
Lowe’s said it’s offering $100 gift cards to the first 50 parties booked between Jan. 19 and March 17.
