Thank you for participating in the last three months of 4-H at home activities. We really hope you've enjoyed them. When you drop off your holiday card, you'll find a small assortment of treasures to pick from. If you choose the brown box, you'll find the materials needed to make a natural holiday decoration! Please find the video below describing how to use your materials!
Below that is a form to let us know how your projects went. We'd love to hear about your favorites or maybe anything you'd like to recommend for the next set of projects!
This month we are going to create some holiday cards using watercolor pencils. You may keep your cards or send your cards...we are asking for at least one card back for the residents at the Kodiak Senior Center.
Please remember, the message inside the card is often just as important , if not more, than the art on the front!! Put some thought into your message. Some ideas for messages could include-
