CRESTVIEW — Hammers made steady tap-taps at Walker Elementary School this week, when Michelle Williams' first-graders built toy trucks.

During the annual Building with Dad period, students spend quality class time with their fathers, though grandfathers and two grandmothers also joined Tuesday's fun.

Each student built a wooden miniature recycling truck from kits provided by Lowe's Home Improvement's Build and Grow program.

Williams said she periodically registers her own children for the store's free monthly kids' construction clinics.

"Then I just started asking if I could have the kits for my class," she said.
