Macoupin County 4-H Cloverbuds baking workshop is a tasty time

University of Illinois Extension hosted a 4-H Cloverbud Baking Workshop on Monday, Feb. 20.  This session was open to youth age 5-8. The workshop included demonstrations and hands-on learning. Youth practiced kitchen safety, followed basic instructions from a recipe, and measured and mixed ingredients. Each participant learned how to make zucchini bread.  They prepared the recipe and then took it home to bake. 4-H Federation members Allie Helling of Bunker Hill, Josiah Schuette of Shipman, and Ariana Coan of Staunton enhanced their leadership skills by helping assist youth during this baking workshop.

Look for future educational workshops being offered by the University of Illinois Extension, Macoupin County. Questions or inquiries can contact U of I Extension staff at 217-854-9604.
