Here are some way to find the right project book for you:

  • Find the perfect book. Refer to your Family Guide in print or online to learn about the projects available this year. You can also preview books on Project Central and learn more about each project.
  • Download one for free. A special collection of project books is available for free on the Perfect Stay-at-Home Projects web page ( Click on the book you want, and when the file opens on your screen, save or print it from there. Horseless Horse and Science Fun with Physics are being added soon! (For accessible formats of these publications, visit
  • Make your own. If you would rather not purchase a book in this way, self-determined projects are an excellent choice for self-motivated members eager to get started by creating their own projects. Although self-determined projects may be better suited for older 4-H members, they are available for any member and are often based on idea starters already available online. Many of the idea starters are great stay-at-home projects too, for example, Music, Bats, String Art, Climate Change, American Sign Language, etc. (For project judging, self-determined projects are judged in self-determined categories.)

If you have any questions, you may reach out to Leslie Cooksey ( or Aubry Fowler ( – Fairfield County 4-H Educators.

Don’t forget to submit your enrollment. All members and advisors need to have their enrollment in by May 1st! If you have changes to make to your project list and your 4-HOnline Profile has been approved, just send Missy Koenig ( an email letting her know what changes you’d like to make to your projects.

Stay safe, stay healthy! You’re all Making the Best Better in 4-H!
