**New**4-H Ontario Online Explore 4-H Club

The 4-H Ontario Programming Team has been hard at work creating an online 4-H Project Resource to help parents find fun, simple and educational activities to do with their kids while social distancing practices are in place due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Explore 4-H Online Project Resource went live on Friday March 20, 2020 in response to inquiries and requests from parents and 4-H’ers alike. “These are challenging times, our volunteers in Waterloo had launched the 4-H Science Fair Project, our first fully digital 4-H Club Project earlier this year with great success. With our members and millions of Canadians staying home due to social distancing measures, we knew that we had to do more, and we had to do it quickly. We wanted to share our curriculum and make it accessible to more people. We looked into our archives and pulled out a range of activities that could be done at home, with your family and with minimal supplies,” says 4-H Ontario Senior Manager of Programming, Marianne Fallis. “We offer over 30 activities to choose from, with everything from baking to quizzes, to outdoor fun.”

One of the most exciting parts of the Explore 4-H Online Project is that is free and accessible to everyone (If you would like credit for the club you must pay your 2020 4-H membership fee to your association secretary). “Right now, it is more important than ever to pull together, share resources and create safe, accessible learning opportunities for families,” says Evelyn Chambers, Interim Executive Director. “4-H’ers can apply this toward project completion credits, but the activities are free to explore for those who may be unfamiliar with 4-H.”

Submit the completed activities in a single file (Word or PDF) to programstudent@4-hontario.ca by June 1st. The more activities you complete, the more clubs you complete.  (i.e. 6 activity options completed = 1 project; 12 activity options completed = 2 projects, etc.)
