The 4-H Cloverbud project is designed specifically for children in grades 5-year old Kindergarten through 2nd grade. 4-H Cloverbud programs are developmentally appropriate, activity-focused and built on cooperative learning. The primary difference between a 4-H Cloverbud activity and a 4-H Project area is that the member engages in varied activities with focus on developing a specific skill or concept utilized in completing the activity, rather than focusing on a long-term planned course of study in a specific subject area. Participation, safety, personal development, learning and fun are the highest priorities for the Cloverbud project.
CLOVERBUD PROJECT BOXES
For the 2020-2021 project year, Cloverbuds are offered the opportunity to explore Jefferson County 4-H through the “Cloverbud Box” program. By signing up for this program, your Cloverbud will receive an activity box every other month with various projects that they can do at home. There is a minimal fee of $5 per box. Some of the projects will need a parent or guardian’s assistance while others your son or daughter will be able to do independently. Each box will have a theme and the projects and learning will center around that theme.
- February – Arts
- April – Natural Science
- June – Agriculture
Past Box Themes:
- What is 4-H?
Jefferson County Cloverbuds have been meeting bi-monthly for a 1/2 hour via Zoom. During our meetings, we play a game, show-off our projects and learn about a specific topic or project area. Check out your weekly Clover Connections and monthly newsletters for more details!
In addition to the Countywide meetings, your individual club may also offer Cloverbud meetings and/or activities during club meetings. Check in with your club’s general leader for further information on your specific club!
