Creative craft kits for the
kids of Webasto employees
The traditional Children's Day on Penance Day had to be cancelled for the second year in a row due to rising infection figures in the district. To make the youngsters happy anyway, the company distributed individual handicraft sets.
Hengersberg – 19. November 2021 – At Webasto Hengersberg, the Day of Prayer and Repentance is traditionally dedicated to the employees' children. Every year, children aged six to thirteen are invited to the location on this day. They can explore their parents' workplace and spend their day off from school at Webasto with lots of fun and creative activities. Due to Corona, the Children's Day, which this year had the motto "35 years of convertibles - 35 years of driving fun", had to be cancelled.
Craft sets instead of playing pleasure
As consolation for the cancellation, the Webasto location came up with a special surprise and distributed sustainable craft sets to the 50 registered pupils. The contents of the sets varied depending on the age of the children: fast speedsters made from cardboard rolls, convertible sodoku or mobile phone cases made from the remains of convertible top fabric. For the upcoming Christmas season, cardboard stars made from old cardboard boxes were distributed to all the children, who were allowed to design them individually to their heart's content. For the return of a crafted star, each child will receive a small surprise as a thank you. The collected handicrafts will then decorate the Christmas tree in the foyer of the Hengersberg location from the first of Advent.
