Northeast Texas 4-H “Learn & Play Days”

School is out for the summer, but that doesn’t mean learning stops!

The 2017 Northeast Texas 4-H Family & Consumer Sciences “Learn & Play Days” give youth entering 3rd grade through 12th grade hands-on opportunities to learn fashion, canning, kitchen and food safety, how to prepare simple meals, and healthy living.

Participants do not have to be 4-H members.

Each of the six “Play Days” will be held in different counties and are hosted by different county Agents in NE Texas. The cost is $5 per day per person, and is payable at the door of each location.

All “Play Days” will be held from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm and are scheduled:

  • June 14th “Kids CANning: in Cass County (Linden)
  • June 21st “Foodies in the Kitchen” in Upshur County (Gilmer)
