Are you still looking for the perfect gift for the 4-H members and supporters in your life? Consider gifting them a custom 4-H LEGO kit so they can show off their 4-H pride year-round.
Packaged in a custom box, each kit contains 138 genuine LEGO pieces and an instruction manual that shares information about Ohio 4-H programming, stories from alumni about the impact of 4-H, and ways to support Ohio 4-H and get youth involved.
The 4-H LEGO kits are available for purchase on the Brixilated website. In addition to receiving a unique piece of 4-H memorabilia, your purchase will support Ohio 4-H. Through the Ohio 4-H Foundation’s partnership with Brixilated, a portion of the proceeds from each purchase will come directly back to Ohio 4-H to benefit youth development programming across the state.
