On August 21, young people who visit the John Deere facility in Moline, Illinois, will get to take part in the Kid's Craft Day, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This month's theme features insects, and will give children the chance to make their own bug jars.
For the uninitiated, bug jars are just that - containers that allow people to collect creepy crawlies and observe them. They usually include air holes that allow the creatures to breathe. Once users are through observing the critters, they can unscrew the top of the enclosure and let them out.
Last month's Kid's Craft Day featured a number of farming activities in honor of the third annual Ag Education Day. The purpose of the celebration is to allow children the chance to learn about the industry.
Other months have showcased the dairy industry, while September's installment will focus on apples. The pavilion also features the history of John Deere.
