The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Super Saturday

 

In an effort to reinvigorate enthusiasm for 4-H, volunteer leaders held a Super Saturday event at the Skamokawa Fairgrounds this weekend.

"We are trying to get kids back and actively engaged," Deb Gribskov, one of the 4-H Leaders who organized the event said on Tuesday. "We wanted kids to try things they aren't doing in their clubs, or to see something new."

The kids made stepping stones, little rabbits containing bath balls, and tie-dye kitchen towels to give to their moms for Mother's Day.

They watched robots, even getting a chance to drive one, working their way through mazes.

There was a chance to try weaving at one or more of the looms with Gribskov. She had a floor loom, a tapestry loom, and a peg loom.

"I had a couple boys come through that were just fascinated by the mechanics of the loom," Gribskov said. "They kept coming back."
