Special 4-H Projects

We have three inspiring 4-H project to your family can participate in remotely!  

pay forward "Message of Kindness"

        Youth and families create a message of kindness on a 8x11 piece of paper.  Take a photo of your creation. Email your message of kindness to jkatawicz@ucanr.edu.  I will forward your email to a 4-H leader family that is creating a slide show to be shared with hospital workers, patients and elderly homes to help brighten their day.  We would like to send the message that 4-Her's care about the good work staff are doing while brighten the day of elderly and sick patents.  This is an amazing way to show how important 4-Her are in our community.

       We have an Emerald Star project with a "Kindness Rock".  Tired of staying in the house looking for some sunshine and fresh air.  We have just the project for you.  You will need a clean river rock, paint and idea.  Clean your river rock, let dry.  Then use your imagination and paint or draw a message on the rock.  After the shelter in place state order is lifted, deliver your rock to the 4-H office.  We have an amazing 4-H member that will place the rock in front of local business with their permission to brighten the day of people walking by the store.  This is a great way to send a positive message.
