Arkansas 4-H Record Books
It’s that time of year. The first week of January is the due date for White County Arkansas 4-H Record Books to be turned in to the extension office. Now is the time when parents are frantically searching through their records of what their child did and scouring their social media for images related to their childrens’ projects. Talk about a stressful time! I gotta say, any sane parent would have kept track of this stuff in one simple place through the entire year.
I did that in 2015..
Or so I thought.
As was recommended, I purchased a small pocket calendar and wrote down what I remembered as it happened. I also kept track in my daily life planner. Except I forgot to write down a lot. Not only was I missing information when filling our record books out, I realized that it is very difficult to go through every single page of a daily life planner to find information.
No way am I putting myself through that when 2016 Arkansas 4-H Record Books are due. Instead, I taped a piece of paper on the inside of my pantry door and I am keeping track of everything on that piece of paper. It’s easier than writing on a calendar, plus I can date the activities as they happen. It’s only January 8th and we already have 1 meeting attended, talks given, and a service project done! No wonder it is hard to keep track of an entire years worth of work.
I have noticed a trend every time Record Books are due.. There are tons of questions regarding how to fill them out and what information is needed. I have created this printable with some tips and frequently asked questions for filling our your Arkansas 4-H Record Books:

If you were in 4-H what would your project be?
I was not in 4-H when I was younger, but I think I would have chosen Arts and Humanities, or Citizenship. My kids are doing Animal Science, Technology, and Environmental Stewardship.
