4-H is sponsoring a mini 4-H night on April 2nd at 6:00 p.m. at the Shelby County Fairgrounds. This event is for any youth in kindergarten through grade two. If youth would like to sign up for mini 4-H, the fee is only $5. We will have staff to answer questions at BIG MINI NIGHT while the youth will have a science lesson on the life cycle of a tadpole and how it develops into a frog (and yes tadpoles will be sent home if you want one!) Youth will also have an Easter Egg hunt, plant some flowers, and have some great recreation. It will be a great hour of fun!
Mini 4-H is offering a lot of great workshops for the youth this year! We have Crafty Minis (for those Mini 4-H’ers who are artsy), we have Mini Robots (youth build robots), we have Food Minis (for those minis who like to eat and are interested in the science of food—or those who like to see things explode), we have Toy Story Minis (for those who like to disassemble their toys—future engineers!) Sign up for these workshops can be found at www.signupgenius.com and go to sign ups by email@example.com or contact the Shelby County Extension Office at 317-392-6460.
We also have Mini Fun Day at the fair. Those youth that sign up for mini 4-H can bring their projects to the fair on July 2nd, have projects judged and displayed at the fair, be a part of the frog jumping fun and or livestock show.
We also hold a mini 4-H camp on June 6th and 7th. This is a day camp at the Shelby County Fairgrounds. Cost is $25 for two days of great camp fun!
Mini 4-H teaches science, engineering, technology, community service, and gives youth to meet a lot of new friends! The program is sponsored by Purdue University and your local Shelby County government.
