4-H Clover Kids Program

The 4-H Clover Kids Program is for youth between the ages of 5 to 7 years old on January 1 of the current calendar year. This program is designed to be hands-on and noncompetitive.

Children 5 to 7 years of age develop and learn in ways different from older youth ages 8 to 18 years of age. Knowing these differences, projects and activities are designed to provide a foundation for Clover Kids to develop. Early Childhood Extension Educator Lisa Poppe has developed and designed easy-to-use, quick-reference worksheets for volunteers to use when working with the 4-H Clover Kids Program. The worksheets are based on information gathered from the various 4-H Clover Kids Curriculum that are available at your local Extension Office and can be found in the Nebraska 4-H Resources.
