Living in a metropolis like Berlin can be monotonous for kids sometimes – free-living animals, wildflowers, herbs and whatever nature offers are rarely seen. For that reason, Nick Jr. and the team at the ‘Pinke Panke’ farm invited children from 3 to 6 years of age to the farm yard to learn about the environment and all its facets.
During a farm tour, guided by Dora the Explorer herself, the little ones got to see chickens, donkeys, sheep and many other animals that they could actually pet. The experts from ‘Pinke Panke’ also explained to the kids where popular breakfast eggs and ‘oh so loved’ milk come from, why a cow has patches and what a pig eats. The highlight for the kids, grown-ups and even Axel Schulz (a German ex-boxer and actor): the feeding of the animals. But a farm does not only house animals; the kids also discovered and even harvested lots of plants, vegetables and herbs.
After a long afternoon full of hard work, Dora and the kids rested in the hay and prepared food made from the ingredients they picked earlier in the day. As a special highlight, each kid got to make “Stockbrot” (or “bread on a stick”), which they could later dip in a curd mixed with all the fresh and aromatic self-picked herbs. While sitting next to the campfire, eating, talking and laughing, this exciting and quite informative day slowly found its end.
“With our day at the children’s farm yard Pinke Panke, we organized an adventurous day full of fun and learning, right in the heart of the big city of Berlin. It was truly heartwarming to see the kids having fun and explore their ‘neighbor’-nature together with Dora,” says Sarah Prill, PR Manager for Nickelodeon North.
With its high-quality and educational content, Nick Jr. represents a program within Nickelodeon specifically designed for kindergarteners and preschoolers.
“When it comes to our youngest viewers, Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. is setting great values through high quality experiences for the kids – both in front of the TV screen and beyond. Just like their role model Dora, kids should explore nature firsthand,” adds Sarah Prill about Nickelodeon and the ‘Bauernhoftour’ at ‘Pinke Panke’ (http://www.kinderbauernhof-pinke-panke.de/).
