Right now my two year old is totally obsessed with all things train and he especially loves Chuggington. It's an action-based, high energy, and colorful CGI series for preschoolers about a group of trainee trains that include the DVD's title character Koko.
In each episode the Trainees learn life skills and values as they set out on a training mission that require their courage, speed, and determination. Older more mature Chuggers often help or provide guidance during these learning experiences.
I like how the skills such as working together, friendship, telling the truth etc. are taught during the course of each episode and how being the best trainee they can be is stressed. I feel Chuggington provides quality entertainment with a positive message and because it's about trains it's certainly a high interest topic for my little guy!

Once the kiddos are done watching the trainee's adventures on Explorer Koko, use this Scavenger Hunt Activity Sheet to get them outdoors and exploring their own environment. There are all sorts things for the kids to look for and find. I think it would be super fun to also take a picture of each item as you find it. Then you can print them out and put them into an inexpensive photo album and use it as a photo walk book to remember your Chuggington inspired adventure!
