This Earth Day, we are encouraging you to engage in recycling by participating in the 4-H Great Roll Challenge. We are asking everyone to gather up any empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls you have around the house. Then, use these empty paper towel rolls to create your own recycled craft. Need ideas for what to create? Check out some of these fun websites and articles:

Once your craft is completed, take a picture of it and post on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #4HGreatRollChallenge. Make sure that your post is set to “public” so your post will show up in our searches. One lucky person who shares will be randomly selected to win a free Earth Day prize from Tattnall County 4-H. Winner will be selected on May 1st, so be sure to post your creation before that date!

Don’t have social media? You can email the picture to rbowen1@uga.edu and we will share it for you! We hope to see lots of cool creations from our 4-H Families and others across the state and nation!

We hope you have enjoyed our 12 part series of STEM Challenges! We will be starting a new series of health living posts in May! Stay tuned…
