As anyone with kids can attest, it’s been challenging to keep them occupied while many schools are closed and health official promoting social distancing from friends. Quadratec has created a neat program encouraging parents to use this time to teach their kids a few life skills.
Whether that takes the form of teaching them how to change oil, rotating tires, or installing a righteous new snorkel kit is completely up to you. Quadratec’s program encourages budding Jeep fans and their parents to take a picture of the work and post it on a social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Naturally, they’d prefer it if you tag them in the post and use the #HandsOnHomeSchool hashtag.
What’s the payoff (besides teaching kids a thing or two about Jeeps while getting them out of the house)? After posting your accomplishments online, head to the Quadratec website where a couple of minutes with an online form will net you a couple of t-shirts – provided you used the hashtag in your social media post, of course.
The company has a point when it says the sense of accomplishment when fixing something on one’s Jeep is quite invigorating and more than a bit addictive. Its hope is this program will help kids to be eager for the next project instead of incessantly searching for their smartphones or gaming console.
