Mini 4-H

Mini 4-H

We welcome you and your child to the Mini 4-H program.  Mini 4-H is for boys and girls who are in Kindergarten, first and second graders and is designed to supplement and introduce them to the LaPorte County 4-H program. LaPorte County Mini 4-H offers various projects to help youth learn and have fun.  *View the related files below to access the Mini 4-H Handbook and project manuals.

As a Mini 4-H parent, your job is to guide your child through the activities. It is suggested that you do not complete the activities for them. Instead, help them, guide them, work with them, and let them do all that they possibly can. Learning by doing is the best educational tool that we can provide for our youth.

Additionally, the Mini 4-H program is set up to allow your child to exhibit a project at the 4-H Fair. This project is based on information within this manual. The 4-H Fair is an exciting time for 4-H members and families. It is a week that allows community youth to showcase their talents, interests and enthusiasm for learning.

Mini 4-H is fun! Your child will certainly enjoy it. You can have fun too, by guiding and helping as your child participates in the program. Encourage and praise your child as he/she has fun learning and sharing with you.

You can enroll online at When choosing a club, make sure to select the LaPorte County Mini 4-H Club.  There is a $5.00 club dues that will need to be paid by cash or check at the Extension Office.
