Winter 4-H Class Registration Is Open!
After having an incredible season of sewing table runners and soup cozies, building Lego™ coat racks and pumpkin luminaries, cooking apple turnovers and chicken enchiladas, and studying the science of slime and doing community service projects, our Fall 4-H clubs are winding up.
That means it’s time to get your children registered for the Winter session of 4-H, where we have even more exciting and educational activities in store!
This winter, we have the following club offerings for 4-H’ers…
Sewing Program – This annual program is open to youth 9–18. Each student is assigned an instructor. We provide everything needed, except the pattern and material, to take your child through the process of making a garment. The Winter program will start on Wednesday, January 16 (with an informational session) and will run till March 22, 2019, meeting every Monday and Wednesday.
Cool Clovers Cloverbud Club – This club for children age 5–8 meets the second Tuesday of the month. Under the leadership of 4-H’er Katelyn Ruff, members learn socialization and life skills. This fall they learned about 4-H, the science of slime, community service, and Christmas crafting. The first Cloverbud Club for Winter will be on January 8.
Timber Time Woodworking Club – Meeting the 3rd Thursday of the month, this club for ages 9-18 helps students learn about the tools of the trade and how to operate them safely, making interesting wood crafts. This fall they constructed a Lego coat rack, pumpkin luminary, and Christmas Advent counter. This class has a material fee of $15.00. The first Timber Time club for Winter will meet on January 17.
Adventures in Cooking Club – Our Winter Cooking club meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Youth 9 and up are learning their way around the kitchen, and our fall members have made apple turnovers, cake pops, and learned to cook with Thanksgiving leftovers. Material fee for this club will be $12.00 and the first class will be on January 22.
Tinkering Club – We’re also excited to announce a brand new club for youth 7–12. If we want to raise kids to be independent thinkers and change-makers, one of the best things we can do is give them the tools to figure stuff out for themselves. Each month, I will provide them with a different challenge using a different medium (such as Legos ™, computers, or electronics) to try to either solve a problem or create something. We will meet the 4th Friday of the month, beginning January 25. If you have a young person who likes to create or figure out how things work, this club is for them!
