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?
