WHAT IS A PROJECT?
A 4-H project is like a learning adventure! It’s a hands-on activity or topic you choose to explore and learn more about. It could be about animals, cooking, robotics, gardening, photography, or even leadership skills. You dive into the project, set goals, and work on it with guidance from 4-H leaders. It’s a fun way to learn, make friends, and grow your skills!
What is a Record book?
A 4-H Record Book is like a special diary where 4-H members can keep track of all the cool things they do and learn in their 4-H projects.
Here’s what you can put in your 4-H Record Book:
- Goals: You can write down what you want to learn and achieve in your 4-H project. It’s like setting a fun target for yourself.
- Activities: You can write about all the activities and events you participate in as part of your 4-H project, like meetings, workshops, and competitions.
- Photos: You can add pictures of you working on your project. It’s a bit like creating a photo album of your 4-H adventures.
- What You Learn: Write about the new skills and knowledge you gained in your project. It’s a bit like taking notes in a class.
- Expenses: Keep track of how much money you spend on your project, like buying supplies. This helps you learn about budgeting.
- Time Spent: Write down how much time you spend on your project. This shows your dedication and effort.
- Achievements: You can list any awards or recognition you receive for your 4-H work. It’s like getting gold stars for your efforts.
By keeping a 4-H Record Book, you not only remember all the fun things you do in 4-H but also learn to set and achieve goals, manage your resources, and improve your skills. Plus, it’s a great way to show others what you’ve accomplished in 4-H, like your family, friends, and even judges at competitions. It’s like your own special book of achievements!

CLOVER BUDS (AGES 5-7)
Who are Cloverbud 4-H’ers?
Our youngest 4-H’ers aren’t quite ready to participate in many of the project areas and/or activities that older children do such as caring for or showing animals, shooting sports activities, launching rockets, or baking. But there is still plenty for them to do in 4-H, starting with fun! Cloverbuds is an exciting 4-H program for 5, 6 or 7-year-old children.
The emphasis is on participation, learning, and teamwork, not competition.
They might, for example:
- Learn about nutrition while helping to prepare simple snacks
- Plant seeds, and learn what to do to help them grow
- Decorate a cake to learn about elements of design and planning.
What do Cloverbuds do?
Cloverbuds are members of a 4-H club with a trained leader. Not all 4-H clubs have a Cloverbuds leader, so look for one that does. The youth participate in activities and special workshops and events throughout the year such as demonstrations, community service, and being a part of a team.
Cloverbuds focuses on a curriculum that can be used at home or with a club.
Cloverbuds can participate in many 4-H activities. Activities include Participation in 4-H clubs, 4-H Fashion Revue, 4-H Carnival, Cat Show (stuffed cat only), Demonstration/Speech with a club or participation at county contest, Creative Cooks, Performing Arts, Cake Decorating, Cloverbud Camp, and Cloverbud Kits.
Limitations of Cloverbuds
Cloverbud-aged children have limitations in what they can do physically, understand mentally, grasp emotionally, and how they interact socially, therefor activities for Cloverbuds are designed for youth ages 5-7. Special consideration is given to ensure emotional and physical safety. Activities that Cloverbuds do not participate in are:
- Shooting sports
- Raising animals
- Launching rockets
