Taking Care of Business #9: Recreation

Looking FOURward

If the educational program is the meat of a program, then recreation is the dessert.  Recreation builds a sense of community, belonging, and trust among 4-H club members.

Some tips for leading recreation:

  • Choose a variety of games- some physical, some mental, etc.
  • Know the rules before you start.
  • Have all supplies on needed before you begin.
  • Demonstrate the game before playing.
  • End the game at the height of the fun- don’t drag it on.
