University of Illinois Extension will be offering a Wizarding World of 4-H.  Open to all youth that have completed 1st through 12th grades.  4-H membership not required.

After check-in, participants will be sorted into their houses, create a wizard hat, and a color-coded house tie. After, participants will head to potions class where they will be brewing some fizzy and bubbly concoctions such as root beer and much, much more. In herbology class, participants will enjoy learning about different herbs, planting an herb of their own, and painting a one-of-a-kind pot. Finally, every wizard or witch needs their own wand. In our wand-making class participants will make a wand, parchment paper, and a quill. Classes will be on a rotational basis.    It will be a busy morning of fun, creativity, and hands-on learning!
