A variety of workshops were held at the Sac County Extension and Outreach Office during winter break! The workshops included a Makerís Day which allows the youth to make things such as felting, bath bombs, learning about electricity and using copper tape, a battery and an LED light to make a light up card and using the 3-D pens! A sewing workshop was held with Denise Opsal teaching the youth to make a pillowcase. There was also a Countdown to Fun day which included learning about other cultures and how they celebrate, making candy moving machines, dance parties and ending the day with a movie.
