Clover Buds Give a Taste of 4-H – Sterling Journal-Advocate
By Jaci Wagner, Logan County Extension
Although our younger 4-Hs aren’t quite ready to participate as official members, there is still a lot to do in 4-H, starting with the fun! The Clover Bud Program is an exciting, fun, and hands-on educational program specially designed for children ages five to seven. 4-H Clover Bud Members participate in learning activities that sample 4-H projects, encourage self-confidence, healthy lifestyles, social skills, teamwork and most of all, fun!
The emphasis is on discovery, participation, learning and teamwork. The program can help children develop life skills, create lasting friendships, and develop a taste for 4-H membership. The Clover Bud program is rooted in teamwork and positive development. Clover Bud’s activities are based on strong principles of child development and are developed in collaboration with Colorado State University Extension
They can learn about nutrition by helping to prepare simple snacks, plant seeds and learn what to do to help them grow, or decorate a cake to learn more about the design and planning elements. Each session will feature a new discovery program that will teach them an exciting topic and show them plenty of 4-H project options to choose from when they get older.
Clover Buds participate in special activities and workshops throughout the year, such as community service and being part of a team. Registration is available by stopping by the Extension office for a hard copy, or by filling out this google form: https://bit.ly/CloverbudReg If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at ( 970) 522 -3200 x 5 or stop at 508 South 10th Ave in Sterling.
