ORISKANY, N.Y. — National 4-H Week is October 2nd-8th. This year’s theme is Opportunity4All. The theme highlights that talented children are everywhere, and opportunities to foster their talent are not always available. In celebration of creating opportunities for the youth, we are happy to announce that Oneida County 4-H will start a brand new Cloverbud Club in November! The Cloverbud Club will be for youth aged 5-7, allowing them to learn the basics of 4-H and involve youth in non-competitive group activities. Rather than individual projects like the older 4-H members participate in.
Ellen Olson, an Early Care and Learning Subject Educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County, will lead the new Cloverbud Club. Her goals are to include activities that involve Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, working on each topic throughout the year. She also plans to work on social-emotional skill-building activities at each meeting briefly.
The first November meeting will be building catapults and experimenting with different projectiles: pom poms, small erasers, and rubber balls! Measurements of how far the projectiles flew will be taken and charted.
If you are interested in signing your child up for the Cloverbud Club first contact Casey Holbert at email@example.com to register your child for 4-H.
