Next week’s Camp Au Pair theme will be Cars & Trucks.
Crafts, recipes, activities, and games related to all kinds of vehicles can all be found here on the Camp Au Pair – Cars & Trucks pinboard.
Field Trips can be an excellent way for kids to learn and have new experiences. Get permission from your host parents before any outings. Here are a few field trips that go with this theme:
- Go kart track (even if they aren’t old enough to drive, watching the cars is fun)
- Look for construction areas where the kids can observe big machines in action. Kids should observe from the car or a safe area.
- Keep an eye out for the trash truck and let them watch the truck in action.
- Go to a drive-through car wash or let the kids make their own car wash at home.
Movies – Here are some movies that fit the cars and trucks theme.
- Bumble Bee
- Bob the Builder Mega Machines
- Cars, Cars 2 & 3
- Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
- Go Karts

Books – Check your kids’ bookshelf for books on cars & trucks. You can also find many read aloud book videos on YouTube. Cool Cars , Little Blue Truck, Trash Trucks, and With Any Luck, I’ll Drive a Truck are a few fun ones to get you started.
