Rockingham/Strafford County 4-H 2022 Winter Makers Mates

4-H Makers Mates IS BACK! We are offering this beloved program again this holiday season but this time we are cranking it up several notches.

Makers Mates is exactly like the traditional Pen Pals program, but with a fun 4-H twist! Instead of trading letters with your buddy, you trade a piece of art or a craft of some kind that YOU MAKE.

This year, we will kick off the program with Craftapalooza! on Saturday, December 18, 2021. At Craftapalooza, youth will work through a few guided crafts of their choice. They will leave with a few finished crafts and several ideas and instructions for craft ideas for their Maker Mate.

Then, for the first time, we will be having our Reveal Party in person on Saturday, February 5, 2022 at 12pm at the Brentwood 4-H office.

Sign up for Makers Mates via 4-H Online by Friday, January 7, 2022 (the deadline to sign up for Craftapalooza is Friday, November 26, 2021). You will then be linked with a Maker Mate of a similar age and receive some more information about them to give you some ideas for what to make. You do not need to sign up for Makers Mates to participate in Craftapalooza or vice versa, but you should do both because it’s the most fun that way!
