If you have train enthusiasts in your household, like I do, tomorrow is National Train Day! Here are some Chuggington suggestions on how to celebrate the day!
Chuggington has a brand new game on the market: Chuggington Traintastic Cargo Game.
I haven't had a change to play this yet, so tomorrow I will be busting it out for the little trainees to try (I will let you know how that goes next week ;-)). "It is a fun game of memory, pattern matching and discovery."
Don't have time to run out and buy a game, don't worry, here are a few ideas for activities to play:
- Have a Chuggington Dance Off - Challenge each 'trainee' to creat their own dance moves to the Chuggington Theme song. Record their moves and create a Chuggington music video. Upload the videos to YouTube and the Chuggington Facebook page.
- Form a Chuggington Train "Chugga" line - like forming a 'Conga' line.
- Start Chuggington musical chairs - using the Chuggington theme song, encourage kids to play musical chairs.
- 'Conductor Says' - create your own version of 'Simon Says'
- "Chugga, Chugga, Choo Choo!" - instead of 'duck...duck...duck...GOOSE!"
Other craft ideas:
- Make Train cookies.
- 'Traintastic Craft Time' - using colored paper of all different shapes, give your trainees the chance to create their own Chuggington Chuggers! Be sure to provide adult supervision when working with scissors and glue.
- Bake a Chuggington cake. For inspiration, check out Chuggington's Facebook Page
End the day with a good ol' movie night! Grab your popcorn and drinks and watch "Chuggers to the Rescue".
And to celebrate National Train Day, Chuggington has a special National Train Day treat- in the form of a rare special offer code for their website, www.chuggingtonstore.com! But it is not available until 12:01 am on Saturday, May 7th. So come back here on Saturday to get your special code!
