The Inspire Kids To Do Home Activities program spans a wide range of topics and provides a glimpse into the variety of projects and programs offered to Pennsylvania 4-H members.
Parents are provided with easy-to-follow instruction on executing fun, yet educational activities with household items. These activities encourage self-guided learning, creativity and problem-solving.
Activities include the following:
--Photography Challenge. A self-directed photography challenge with a new theme each week. Photography tips are also provided. Youth can share their photos through social media by including #pa4-Hhomeactivities.
--The Exciting Egg. The lesson provides youth with an opportunity to identify the parts of an egg, using their scientific names. Youth also will learn about the difference between fertile eggs and infertile eggs.
--Nature Scavenger Hunt. Participants will learn to look for signs of wildlife and will develop their observation skills in nature.
Additional “Inspire Kids to Do Home Activities” projects will be released throughout the year. Visit https://extension.psu.edu/4-h-home-activities for a complete list of activities, and follow Pennsylvania 4-H on Facebook or Instagram to find out the featured activity of the week.
