Clover Kids "Have Big Hearts"

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach hosted 4-H Saturday Clover Kids February 13 at the Waukon Wellness Center. The 23 Kindergarten through third grade students pictured at right participated in activities around a ‘Have a Heart’ theme. They learned how to be a caring and active citizen of their community and participated in a toothpaste experiment where they were asked to squeeze out all the toothpaste and then put it back in the tube. Youth learned that, just like our words, once the toothpaste was out it is very hard to put back in, therefore, they must choose words carefully. They ended the meeting by making Valentine’s Day cards for residents at Northgate Care Center in Waukon.
