4-H Winter Break ScheduleAccording to some recent research, a child should spend an average of two hours on the screen outside of hybrid or virtual school settings. Union County 4-H is working on some activities to not only keep your young person busy during winter break but reduce the amount of free screen time on free days.

It’s coming back for a second year! Union County 4-H will host its Winter Break Program Series. Winter Break will take place during the months of December and January. The workshops are focused on various topics. This year, we are returning some favorites and adding some new topics like healthy living and livestock. The best part is all of the activities this year are FREE! You heard right, we are offering them for free this year! 

On December 18, Get Up & Move will take place from 9 a.m. to noon for youth between the ages of 8-14. Youth will participate in healthy living activities ranging from mindfulness, physical activities, and more. 

On December 29, we are bringing out our favorite robots – LEGO EV3 Mindstorms and WeDo 2.0 for Introduction to Robotics for both beginners and advanced based on the ages of the children. Introduction to Robotics: Beginner is for youth ages 7 to 9 from 9 a.m. to noon. Introduction to Robotics: Advanced is for youth ages 10 to 14 from 1-4 p.m.

On December 30, it’s all about vision boards and goal setting. In 4-H, setting goals is an important component for any member. It defines and sets the tone of a 4-H member’s success each year. A vision board is a great visual way for youth to notice their goals and hold them accountable throughout the year. The workshop will take place from 1-3 p.m. for youth between the ages of 10 to 14 years old. 

In January, we will have a self-care day workshop for youth between the ages of 8 and 12 years old from 9 a.m.-noon. The following week, Winter Break will conclude with Careers in Livestock for youth between the ages of 13 to 18 years old from 1- 4 p.m.

Each of these lessons will take place face-to-face and will follow proper safety procedures set before the county and state 4-H program. To register, visit Eventbrite or contact the local office at 704.283.3735 or 704.283.3740.
