As May winds down and June approaches, it’s time to start thinking about fun and educational ways to spend those hot days of summer.

While the pool is fun and there are a ton of camp opportunities, Woodford County 4-H is gearing up for another fun summer of our Summertime Fun Project Days.

Woodford County 4-H Summertime Fun Project Days begin the first week of June and offer a variety of topical classes that youth can take to learn skills and create projects they can keep and, if they choose, enter in the Woodford County 4-H Expo. Projects submitted at the Woodford County 4-H Expo will each earn a ribbon and a small cash premium and those deemed class champions will go on to compete against other 4-H youth projects at the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville during the latter part of August.

This year Woodford County 4-H has kept several of the popular project days while also adding some new and exciting offerings. As the

Kentucky State Fair project book changes and adapts, Woodford County 4-H has done the same. Here are the project days offered this summer:

• Pen and Ink

• Wooden Door Hanger

• Linoleum Printing

• Cloverbud Art (5-8 years old)

• Abstract Painting

• Plant Camp

• Jewelry Making

• Floral Arranging (led by the Little Garden Club)

• Sewing Camp

• Cloverbud Horticulture (5-8 Years old)

• Entomology

• Personal Invitations

• Electricity

• Woodworking

• Stamped Cross Stitch

• Knitting

• Arm Knitting

• Cloverbud Science Day (5-8 years old)

• Cartooning

• Resume Writing

• Cloverbud Foods (5-8 years old)

• Kitchen Boot Camp

• Lawn Tractor Operator Contest

• Bicycle Rodeo

Each Project Day results in a take-home project for each participant and varies in price due to supplies. For more information, please emailryan.farley@uky.edu or call the Woodford County Extension Office at (859) 873-4601. Sign-ups are available now, space is limited for each project day and all registrations are due one week before the corresponding project day. All project days, unless noted otherwise, are for 4-H aged youth (must have turned nine before January 1, 2018).
