We have curated some fun additions for your Collector Car Appreciation Day!

Here are some things you can do to help plan your Collector Car Appreciation Day!

Games & Activities that need little to nothing!

  • Take a Destination Drive / Scenery Drive and see if you spot any classic cars on the way! Local classic car clubs tend to post online about meeting up in public places like Sonic Drive-Ins – they are fairly easy to find!
  • Take a virtual car museum tour! This piece has links to some of the best!


Conversation Starters for your 1-on-1s

These are great for conversations, or writing prompts! (You can even send written answers into the Resident Tales and have your residents see their writing in print!)

  • Do you remember your favorite car a family member had? What was it?
  • What was your first car?
  • Who taught you to drive?
  • Did you ever name your car?  If so, what and why?
  • How many cars have you owned in your lifetime?  Which one was your favorite?
  • What do you think cars will look like in the future?
