Staying Safe In The Winter! Winter is a really fun time of year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it's great to have snowball fights, build snowmen, and construct igloos. But while you're out having fun, you have to know how to be safe. When it's cold outside and you're not prepared, you can feel uncomfortable or even rotten. Lucky for you, learning how to stay safe is easy! Dressing in layers is the best way to stay warm in the cold, because you can start out with lots of clothes to keep you warm and then peel them off once you start to heat up. Depending on where you live and how cold it is, some kids may need more layers, some less. But if you're in doubt, go for more layers to start and they can always come off later. (Whatever you do, always leave your coat on - that's one layer that should stay!) For your top half, start by putting on a long-sleeved undershirt (thermal or woolen). Then put on a turtleneck, one or two shirts, a sweater, and a coat. For your bottom half, put on long underwear first (thermal or woolen), then pull on a pair of heavy pants. Try to avoid jeans or light cotton pants (like khakis), because they won't keep you warm. They will actually make your legs and behind colder if you fall down and get wet. Waterproof pants (like ski pants) are best. Finish up with heavy socks and waterproof boots. If you're going to be doing a lot of running around, you'll want to wear boots that have good tread for keeping you steady on snowy and icy areas. You're all bundled up and ready to go so put a hat onto your head! You'll stay much warmer with a hat than without one - body heat escapes right from your head. Scarves, facemasks, and earmuffs are also great at covering you up so you'll stay comfortable longer. Don't forget mittens or gloves. The waterproof kind are the best if you know you'll be playing around a lot in the snow. Keeping your hands warm and dry is important because fingers are very sensitive to the cold. Drink lots of fluids. When you're outside in the cold and breathing hard, you lose a lot of your body's water through your breath. The best way to get that water back is to drink it! Warm drinks and soups keep you hydrated and heat up your insides when it's cold outside. Plus, stopping for a moment to have something warm to drink has another bonus: it makes you go inside and get warm while you're drinking! Sometimes if you're out having fun, it's easy to forget to pay attention to your body. But if your body temperature drops even 4 or 5 degrees while you're outside, it can make you feel horrible. That's why you need to be alert to your body's signals. If you're starting to shiver or your teeth are chattering, it's a message from your body that you need to head inside. Or if you ever feel dizzy or weak, those are sure signs that you have to take it easy indoors for a while.

Keeping an eye on other kids can help make things safe. If it looks like a friend is shivering and really cold, suggest that you take a break inside together. You can both warm up while playing a game or watching TV and then head back outside for more fun. If you're outside on a very cold day and you're not wearing enough protective clothing, you could be in danger of getting frostbite. Frostbite is when the body's tissues freeze, and it usually happens to skin that is exposed (like your face or your ears) or to parts of the body like your fingers or toes. If you're playing it safe in the cold - by wearing heavy clothes, socks, and mittens, and by taking breaks inside when you think you need them, you probably won't have any problem with frostbite. But if you're ever outside and you can't feel your fingers, toes, cheeks, ears, or nose, it may be a sign of frostbite. (Even if it's not frostbite, it's a sign that you should go inside anyway.) Sometimes frostbite can make these body parts hurt or feel hard when you touch them. It can also make the skin on these parts look shiny or pale. If you think even for a second that you might have frostbite, go indoors and tell an adult right away. Once you're inside, an adult should call your doctor. While youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting, wiggle the part as much as you can. This will make more blood go to the area. If it's possible, hold the part against another area of your body that's warm, like holding your fingers on your stomach. Finally, if you ever think you have frostbite, never stick the frostbitten part in hot water or hold something hot against it. Putting the part in warm water is alright, just be sure you have an adult check the temperature first. Keeping safe in the winter is easy to do, once you know how. You want your snow day and other cold days to be the most fun they can be, so put on those layers, wear your hat and gloves, have something warm to drink, and go have fun in the snow!

Create â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heart Artâ&#x20AC;? Animals Everyone can learn to draw. Learning to draw is mainly learning to see shapes. Here is a fun way to practice training your eye to see shapes. Choose a shape to focus on such as a circle or oval. Begin experiment-

1. Cow

2. Bear

Cut out the shapes shown above. The head is the largest heart. Use a medium heart shape for the nose. Make two black circles for the nostrils and a black curved line for the mouth. The ears are a heart shape cut in half. Horns are two rounded â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vâ&#x20AC;? shapes. The eyes are two white circles and two smaller black circles for the pupils.

Cut out the shapes shown above. The head is the largest heart. The nose is a medium/small heart shape with a black circle for the nose and a pink circle for the mouth. The ears are a medium heart shape cut in half. The eyes are created by cutting two white circles and two smaller black circles for pupils.

ing with using different sizes of your shape to construct familiar things like faces, flowers or animals. Adding a few additional shapes may be necessary, but try to mostly use the shape you have chosen. On our page we have selected the heart shape to create animals, however, you will see that some circles and a few other shapes were added as needed. Practice creating heart animals by cutting shapes out with paper or by simply drawing shapes on paper. Have fun creating these animals using many colors and different sizes of hearts. Try designing your own animals too!

3. Bumble Bee

4. Mouse

5. Bird

Cookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fun Calzone Hearts For The Dough: 1 package yeast 1 Tablespoon sugar 1 cup warm water 1 teaspoon salt 3 Tablespoons olive oil 1 3/4 cup white flour 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

For The Filling: Mozzarella cheese Marinara sauce Turkey Pepperoni

Forget Me Not Cones

Extra: Large Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter

Combine yeast, sugar and warm water and let set for 5 minutes. Mix remaining ingredients and then add yeast mixture. Let dough rise in a warm place for about 1 to 2 hours, until double in size. Roll out a small portion of the dough at a time, cutting two equal size hearts with heart shaped cookie cutters. Fill middle with a thin layer of marinara sauce, turkey pepperoni and cheese. Then put another heart on the top and crimp the edges together with a fork. Set on the baking tray. Bake at 400 for 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned. Test of make sure dough is done baking.

Pour milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes. Add whipped topping and 3/4 cup of the crushed cookies; stir gently until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the pudding mixture into each ice cream cup just before serving. Sprinkle evenly with remaining crushed cookies to resemble dirt in flower pots. Flatten tops slightly with back of spoon. Top each with a Marshmallow Flower. How to Make Marshmallow Flowers:

1. Always ask an adult if you can use the kitchen. 2. Have all the ingredients before you start. 3. Wash your hands before you touch food. 4. Wear an apron or towel to keep your clothes clean. 5. Always clean up when you are finished. Proud sponsor of Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; World News

In the words of our Barry County youth... "Because of 4-H, I can run a business. I  learned how to make product, how to price it, I learned what profit and cost means and I learned how to write my Summary, Business Summary, market, sales and Marketing Plan. I was so proud that I won the Outstanding Regional Award for middle school but I was only in the third grade. I won $125."

Barry County participant says, â&#x20AC;&#x153; Because of 4-H I can garden. I learned how to plant gardens, take care of gardens, how to eat healthy, how to make fresh salsa from the vegetables of the garden, and we even ate a watermelon on the sidewalk. Dig down and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to get your hands dirty and try something new.â&#x20AC;?
