Celebrate National Train Day with Fun Chuggington Activities and Games!

May 7th, 2011 is National Train Day!  How will you be celebrating with your trainees?  With Mother's Day following the day after, it is the perfect opportunity to make this weekend all about family fun!  Here are some great ideas for ways to spend some fun quality time together with your children . . .

1)  Pick up one or more Chuggington Crayola Wonder coloring pads and markers.  This is a fun mess-free way to have some Chuggington fun!

2)  Pop some popcorn and watch the Chuggington "Chuggers to the Rescue" DVD.  Get ready for a whole hour of six Chuggington episodes.

3)  Play the new Chuggington Traintastic Cargo Game by Wonder Forge.  This game is perfect for preschoolers and requires only knowledge of shapes, colors, and numbers.

4)  If you're located in Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Los Angeles, or Chicago, take part in the free Train Day celebration hosted by Amtrak between 11am and 4pm.

5)  Play a game of Musical Chairs with the Chuggington Theme Song.

6)  Play a game of "Conductor Says" (like Simon Says).

7)  Weather-permitting, play a game of T-R-A-I-N with a basketball and hoop (like "H-O-R-S-E").

8)  Visit to play some fun free online games.
