Find Free Factory Tours in the United States!!
Whether you’re looking for some free fun at home or on vacation, check out this awesome resource. Summer is just around the corner. Why not take your kids to see how things are made?! It gives a whole new level of appreciation for the hard working folks who make it all happen, and for the items themselves. It’s a great way to teach kids not to be wasteful when they realize it’s not just as easy as opening a package. A lot went into getting it to that point.
I love learning how things work. I once went to a plastic manufacturing plant where they made the plastic bottles for Mobil Oil. Watching that good old ingenuity at work is inspiring. It amazes me how much thought and effort has gone into making one little bottle. This interest is probably from all those years of watching “Picture Picture” on Mister Roger’s Neighborhood. Who knew that the process of making a marble could be so amazing? Not to mention how food is made. Or any of our regular, everyday stuff we take for granted.
So, how cool is it that you can actually tour many of these plants for free!? Even better – it’s all in one handy reference website (linked above). Let us know what gems you find and if you take any free tours!
