Take and Make Tuesdays

Every Tuesday is a Take and Make Tuesday! 4-H will offer grab bags for youth to stop by and pick up each week. The locations for these bags are at the Extension Office located in the Development Complex. There will be a tote at the left/east end door. There will also be a box of kits available on the South Hancock Elementary School front porch. Each week we have different activities, lessons and goodies. Pick up begins at 8 am each Tuesday and supplies are limited. Be sure to follow the Hancock County 4-H Facebook page for weekly updates.

Thank You

The Hancock County 4-H Council would like to thank the Kentucky 4-H Foundation for the grant to allow 4-H to provide supplies and materials for our local youth during the COVID-19 Pandemic. These funds have allowed us to purchase items such as sidewalk chalk, origami paper, canvas art kits, and more.

Great Time to Work on Fair Projects

During this time with children home for an extended break, this is a great opportunity to work on county fair projects. These will be some hands-on activities that can earn some money for the 4-H member! For a complete list of projects, go to “Kentucky4h.org” Click on Kentucky State Fair. Then click on 4-H State Fair Catalog. Under “Curriculum” click on the specific area you are interested. Any projects can be completed. Some require some materials and supplies while some are as easy and fun as designing rooms on a computer and printing the layouts to enter in the fair.

If you want to spend time in the kitchen with your children, go to the Foods Curriculum link, under “Events/Activities” click on Fair Recipe Book with Pictures for Baked Products.” These are some great recipes and you can spend time practicing measuring, fractions, and some science too!

Office Closed to Public

While our office is closed to the public, we are still working for you. We are still taking soil samples. You can leave them in the purple tote located outside our door. You can also call the office at 270-927-6618. Check out our updates on Facebook and watch for 4-H Take and Make Tuesdays and other grab and go bags.
