Cloverbud Member Book

The Cloverbud program is designed for up to three years of a child’s life (ages 5,6 & 7).  4-H age is considered to be the age of the Cloverbud on December 31 of the previous year.  The 4-H year goes from October 1 to September 31. 

Cloverbud Members may download a Cloverbud Member Book to record his or her lessons and accomplishment through the year.  The main purpose of this booklet is to encourage youngsters to learn the life-long skill of keeping records.  Encourage your child to complete as much as he or she can himself or herself.  Parents also can be involved in completing this booklet.

The booklet should be completed by the end of the 4-H year and turned in to the 4-H leader.  Cloverbuds who complete their member booklet may be recognized at the annual 4-H Recognition Night.  Speak with your local county Extension agent to learn more.  The Cloverbud Member book is designed to be used individually or for a Cloverbud Club Leader to incorporate into their program.  Enjoy your year as a Cloverbud!​
