The University of Illinois Extension has many creative things planned to get their youth involved for the holiday season. Alicia Gullidge, 4-H youth and Development Coordinator at the Extension Office said these little events are a way to help kids get creative and take something home with them. Gullidge said on December 3rd, they're holding a Create and Paint Workshop.
Gullidge said on December 5th, they're holding a Gifts from the Kitchen workshop to teach kids how to make some easy treats for the season, that they could possibly use as gifts for others.
And on December 19th, Gullidge said the Extension Office is holding a Gingerbread House Making Contest for the Christian County 4-H'ers.
Gullidge said there are registration deadlines on all of these events that way they can have supplies ready. And to register, contact the U of I Extension Office.
