Kid kits

The Sevier County 4H program is offering free activity kits for children throughout the county starting this week.

The Sevier County 4H program has cleaned out its closets and put together more than 100 activity kits for youths with more to come.

The best part is the kits are free, said Janette Wagner, 4H program coordinator.

“They will be available for drive-up or porch pick-up in Richfield, Salina and Monroe starting May 1 and continuing throughout the month of May while supplies last,” Wagner said.

Each of these kits comes with all of the supplies needed along with instructions. However, children are welcome to come up with their own creative ideas on how to complete each kit’s activity. In addition, 4H is encouraging participants to enter their creations in the Sevier County Fair.

“There will be a display dedicated to items created from these kits, so the county can see some of the wonderful activities kids were involved with while staying home,” Wagner said.

Kids can earn ribbons and premiums for their entries at the fair.

“You have to be a member of 4H to enter items in the fair, but due to a generous donation from a county member the $10 annual enrollment fee will be waived for any child who enrolls in 4H during the month of May,” Wagner said.

A list of the kits can be found here.

To order a kit call (435) 896-0478 between 9 a.m and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, starting today, April 30.

Kits will be delivered to each location daily starting Friday, May 1.

In the South Sevier and North Sevier areas, porch pick up will be offered. The address will be emailed or texted after ordering.

In Richfield, there will be drive by pickup from parking lot of county building, 250 North Main. Those picking up are asked to text their name to (801) 602-7316 when arriving.

Sevier County 4-H

Clarification: You can enter items in the general section of the fair without being a member of 4-H, but to be a part of the special Korner Kits display, you will need to be a member of 4-H. And with free enrollment, clubs, camps, and all kinds of positive youth development going on, why wouldn't you??
