MONTE VISTA – Valley youth ages 5 to 7 are invited to participate in Cloverbuds, a fun activity-focused youth development program, run by San Luis Valley 4-H. The March meeting will take place on Saturday, March 3 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the San Luis Valley Area Extension office in Monte Vista, and will feature cooking-related projects.
Participants will learn about proper hand washing, and measuring through hands-on activities. Then they’ll make some delicious creations, including ice cream in a bag, trail mix, overnight oats, and orange drink.
Kids do not need to be 4-H members to attend this event. The cost is $10 per child, and includes snacks to be eaten at the event, and a few to take home. Youth must RSVP to the Extension office by Wednesday, February 28 if they’d like to participate, as space and materials are limited. Call 719-852-7381 or e-mail [email protected] to register. Please inform us of any food allergies when registering so we can adjust accordingly.
The Cloverbuds club will continue to meet monthly with different themes at each meeting. Upcoming themes include wildlife and rocketry.
