Things are a bit different for all of us these days, but kids might be getting the worst of it. Without the socialization, interactivity, and education that school and daycare provides, they are missing out on a big chunk of their formative years, and we have no idea when all of this is going to end. It’s impossible that anything Porsche could do would replace school, but it has built a new site that will hopefully provide some welcome distraction and an opportunity for parents and children to bond over their favorite automobile brand with games and activities.
Porsche4Kids is a portal for Porsche-centric arts and crafts ideas, puzzles and games. It’s particularly built for children, but there are learning opportunities for Porsche fanatics of all ages. I’ll probably be spending some time there myself, and I don’t even have kids! It just looks like fun. It’s a great opportunity for children to train their concentration and learn by playing. And it covers the entire gamut of Porsche history, from tractors in the coffee fields of South America to Formula E racing on the streets of Paris.
“We want to give children access to the mobility of today and tomorrow as well as to socially relevant topics such as sustainability and safety in road traffic. We want to motivate the kids to explore, discover, laugh and have fun,” says Oliver Eidam, Head of Brand Partnership and Sponsoring.
Porsche4Kids even offers an opportunity to take a digital tour of the Porsche museum in Stuttgart. “Our learning programs could up until now only be experienced in the exhibition, but the new children’s website now allows us to make them available to everyone online,” says Achim Stejskal, Head of Heritage and the Porsche Museum. “We are offering children an easier and readily accessible way to explore the history of Porsche.”
And finally the Kids Driving School magazine offers a platform for parents to teach their children correct road traffic behavior. It’s never too early to get kids started on the road to safe driving. We could all use a refresher course on proper driving techniques and rules of the road, too!
We’re all stuck at home together, so let’s use this as an opportunity to learn something and have some fun in the process. Check it out! I know I’m going to.
