7th Braunform Children's Day
In bright sunshine and African-seeming 28 degrees, the 7th Braunform Children's Day took place on the first summer holiday day at the Bahlinger “Anglerheim”. Under the motto "Adventure trip Africa", 30 kids of employees aged between 3 and 12 years dive into a fascinating and foreign world.
To get into the mood for the adventure trip, exciting stories about the animals of Africa were told at the first adventure workshop and those who paid attention to the animal puzzle received a safari certificate as a reward. The children were able to let off steam artistically in the handicrafts area. Wild lions, graceful giraffes and funny monkeys were painted, a reef was made for home in a shoe box and figures were put together with various handicraft materials. Painted as tigers, lions and zebras, the children slipped into their new roles as inhabitants of the animal kingdom of African. In the second experience workshop the children got to know African food and the meaning of face painting. Food with strange spices was tasted and drums and African bags were made. Varied skill and board games provided a lot of fun and action. The children and adults could take a short break to browse through books or simply rest in a cosy resting area. As a surprise, an ice cream truck provided a sweet cooling after lunch.
The annual Braunform Children's Day has become a constant institution at the beginning of the summer holidays and is organized and supervised by a team of apprentices with the support of the HR and marketing department. This year's Children's Day of the medium-sized company was performed together with the children's event agency Proki from Freiburg, which was responsible for the professional childcare of the kids of employees and also provided the equipment.
