4-H clover Anoka County 4-H project kits & resources available for check out

Looking for an activity for your next meeting? Consider using a 4-H project kit or using a resource from the Anoka County 4-H office! 4-H project kits contain fun, hands-on learning activities to use with 4-H’ers at club meetings, after school sites, club camps, or other settings. Our resource list also contains other items that clubs can access from video equipment to teambuilding supplies.

Activities are based on the Experiential Learning Model, and many activities have been developed using 4-H curriculum materials. Kit activities are available in a wide range of categories: Animals, Arts, Environment, Civic Engagement, Food & Nutrition, Health & the Human Body, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Project kits contain most of the supplies needed for the activity and directions to facilitate the activity. You are responsible for providing any supplies not included.

How to check out a project kit or resource

  3. If there is a particular kit you are looking for, you can contact the office ahead of time to make sure that it is not already checked out before you stop in.             
  4. Before taking the kit, be sure to double check contents to ensure all essential supplies are there and be sure that you are able to provide what is NOT there.
  5. Please do not take more than two kits at a time unless you have approved it with 4-H Staff.
