4H 30 Day Challenge

Thanks to Facebook, I stumbled onto the 4H “Inspire To Do” challenge for the month of September. Each day 4H challenges you and your kids to a fun and ‘simple’ activity to develop knowledge and skills about the world around us. 4H is having a photo contest for everyone practicing in the challenges with a price of $10,000. Pretty cool!! Download the list here.

Some of the challenges are a little intense; for example #6 “raise butterflies and track their stages of life.” Since we raised butterflies last summer (check out that activity here), I know it isn’t a day project. The process is at least 2 weeks. I may modify that day to making a butterfly feeder. Or visiting the butterflies at the zoo. Or maybe both. We’ll see.

Overall, I think these challenges are great and hope to do them all. Check back for updates on our progress.

What do you think will be most challenging activity to accomplish in a day?
