Get excited to learn new skills by making and showcasing all kinds of crafts!

At Craftapalooza, youth will have the opportunity to participate in 2-3 craft workshop sessions. For each workshop, there will be instruction, guidance, and a finished craft you can take home. Track A will offer three 45-minute craft workshops that begin on the hour every hour from 1pm to 3pm. This track and the crafts offered are recommended for youth in 5th grade or younger. Track B is one 2.5 – 3-hour long in-depth crafting project that will incorporate electricity and lights.

Registration is required! Sign up via 4-H Online by Monday February 27th 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!

This year, Craftapalooza is serving as the kickoff event for 4-H Makers Mates! Youth will leave with a few crafts and several ideas and instructions for craft ideas for their Maker's Mate. Use the craft workshops as a way for your children to make their Mate something awesome. Can’t make it? No problem. There will be a virtual crafting workshop provided. Additionally, the coolest thing about Makers Mates is that it can be done completely independently at home.

Here are just a few of the crafts we’ll be making!
