I thought I would give the kids a fun recipe this week, edible playdough. This recipe is super easy to make and only uses three ingredients, creamy peanut butter, powdered sugar, and honey. You will need 1 cup creamy peanut butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, and ¼ to ½ cup honey (just enough to make it stick together). Mix all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer. Then enjoy playing (and eating) your playdough.

4-H Summer Activities
Summer Camp Update
About all we can say about 4-H summer camp is that we are still awaiting direction from the state 4-H office. We have been told that our probability of attending camp in June is very slim. Keep in mind that nothing is definite, but it is looking like we will be changing dates for our weeks of camp. Cloverleaf 4-H camp for 4th-6th graders at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center will possibly be held the week of July 6-10. Junior 4-H camp for 7th-8th graders at the Fortson 4-H Center will possibly be rescheduled to July 27-31. Senior 4-H camp for 9th-12th graders at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center was originally scheduled for the last week in May and we know that we can’t have camp that particular week. We are pretty sure that Senior 4-H camp will be held July 27-31 at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center.
We are looking at holding our Cloverleaf Camp Orientation Meeting on June 15. If we are unable to meet in person, this meeting will be held through an online service. Each camp participant and a parent are asked to be at this meeting. Forms will be mailed out prior to the orientation meeting and will be discussed during the meeting.
