Kids Experienced Hands on Learning at Stephenson County 4-H Super Saturday

Freeport, IL – University of Illinois Extension hosted its annual 4-H Super Saturday on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at Highland Community College. Super Saturday is a 2.5-hour event designed to give area youth ages 5 to 18 a chance to explore the many project areas available through the 4-H program.  This event is open to all area youth, regardless of 4-H membership.

Youth between the ages of 8-18 attended and experienced three hands-on workshops where they could name their own disease, learn about showing livestock with an emphasis on rabbits, plant a mini-succulent garden, try their hand at being an EMT, learn how to decorate cupcakes, mix cloud slime, and much more.

Youth between the ages of 5-7 were invited to participate in our 4-H Cloverbud Super Saturday at the same time and location. The younger youth explored their own project areas such as tie-dying a tablecloth, making an Easter treat, and gardening.
