Walworth County 4-H recently announced its new Cloverbuds at Home program. The program is designed for any county youth, kindergarten through second grade, and provides an opportunity for kids to learn more about 4-H while having fun and exploring different areas of interest.

When registering for Cloverbuds at Home, parents will receive five months of hands-on learning activities, running November through March.

Upcoming activities include:

  • November – Zoom activity, Fizzy Foam Fun, create a foam fountain by adding yeast for a chemical reaction. On Your Own, Build a Bird Feeder.
