4 H Holiday Craft Workshop
Every year, 4 H does a Holiday Craft workshop where we get to make Thanksgiving and Christmas crafts. Usually they do it on a Saturday morning, but this year with all of the local Public Schools being off all week it got scheduled for this morning. They had a great turnout! Out of all the children signed up only one ended up not being there. The children got divided up in groups of 3 to rotate through each of the stations. Chelsea volunteered as a teen leader helper and Nick, Alex, Anthony, and Christian all were signed up for the workshop. Lily is technically too young for 4 H (just don't tell her that!) but she got to make some of the crafts too. I helped herd children and worked at a station after one of the teens had to leave while keeping Emelia happy and out of trouble. Usually she is fine to wander around the EH house, but all of the completed crafts were sitting on the floor and I didn't want her to break anyone's stuff. I wanted to get pictures of every craft they made, but got busy and missed a few. We made: Pumpkin Cupcake, Cookie Ball Ornament, Elf Food , Reindeer Food, Thankful Wreaths, Santa Calendar (count down to Christmas), Turkey Magnets (using child's hand), and Thumb Print Ornaments. We accomplished all of that in about 2 hours!
