4-H project

I am a new 4-H leader who has been asked to teach some teens to knit, crochet and sew. I love the idea and am desperately hoping that the kids will want to do this as much as the parents want them to.
4-H is a wonderful opportunity for these kids to learn more than they know that they are being taught. This organization is a wonderful safe place for kids and they accentuate community service and giving as a big part of their program. I have been deciding on a schedule for this year, and when I came upon this site I think that I have found what I need for some of the community service projects.
I intend to have them participate with the Warm Up America project. I will challenge them to learn the yarn arts, but also to involve parents, relatives and friends to join. I am hoping that the end result will bring together families, nursing homes, and some of the organizations that need the afghans. I would like to get the kids involved with some of the people in the nursing homes to do a sewing bee when we have the squares collected to get them put together.
In the same vein, I would like to challenge them to do walker bags, hats & mittens, and preemie hats. I will let you know when this project winds up at the end of the year.
