John Deere craft day focuses on ag education

Posted by Green Fun Store on 7/13/2010
A John Deere event for children will honor the third annual Ag Education Day and will be held at the companies pavilion in Moline, Illinois.

The education day will be incorporated into the monthly kid day that occurs at the John Deere location in the Land of Lincoln. A variety of events will be offered to children from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 17.

Admission to the craft day is free and will include Little Johnny's Farm, which provides interactive opportunities for kids. There will also be pedal John Deere Toys that will give children the chance to test their competitive spirit.

Blacksmith demonstrations will also be offered, as will a petting zoo. Booths featuring a variety of area ag-related organizations will also be on hand.

Last month, the John Deere Pavilion's craft day highlighted Dairy Month, which encourages children to learn about how that industry benefits the rest of the country. The event gave kids the chance to make their own cow puppets. Next month's theme will focus on bugs and will feature a related project.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19888700-ADNFCR
