Last week, TATA Motors, our client, threw open the gates to their offices in Lower Parel and Thane to the kids of all employees. They entrusted us with the responsibility of hosting the party.
It is a fact – every kid wonders what mama and papa do away from home at office. Kids like to know where their parents go to work, who their friends are and what is it they do there. So every year TATA Motors has a ‘Kids at Work’ day. This year, they wanted it all the more memorable. And memorable it was…
We got their attention right at the door, where a mascot greeted the kid with the gift – a fundoo backpack stuffed with goodies. The kids were shepherded into conference rooms by promoters and cafeterias which were converted into auditoriums for talent shows and the much anticipated magic show. Once the kids had their fill of gawking at the office and opening and shutting drawers, they were encouraged to redesign the parent’s cubicle using the materials packed in the backpack. Cakes were cut to mark the occasion. Tasty snacks kept everyone’s energy levels high. The highlight of the day was the incredible magic show. Pigeons vanished and voila, smiles materialized. And then were the prizes, too. For the best performances, paintings and the decoration jobs, and surprise gifts for no reason in particular! Fair to say, the event was a hit with kids of all ages.
As we watched tired kids leave the offices taking with them happy memories of the day past the end, we overheard a cheery parent quipping: “I hope the kids don’t start believing that this is what happens at our offices every day!”
Why not, we say. Work and party go hand in hand at Green Apple Design!
