Pick a project that suits you THEN, Learn To Do By Doing!
The first step to take when planning your 4-H year is to pick a project. Learning new skills, making things and visiting places with friends are all a part of a 4-H project, so pick one that you like the most.
These questions might help you pick a project that's just right for you:
- What do you like to do at school?
- What are your hobbies and favourite books?
- What do you do in your spare time?
- What have you seen at a 4-H display that looked like it might be fun to do?
After you've answered these questions, look through the projects listed in this guide and circle the ones that you might like to do. Don't forget about Create-A-Project! It lets you pick what you like to do and make a project that is made to fit your needs.
Think about the projects that you have circled. Do they match what you can do? Do you have the time, money and equipment available to finish the project?
Talk to your parents and your 4-H leader. They can help you choose a project that matches what you want to do and help determine what equipment, time and skills you will need to complete the project.
