"What do you want to be when you grow up?" is probably question adults most often ask children. It's a way of getting them to envision their future. Here are some fun activities related to growing up that you can do with your kids at home in your Windsor real estate with a little assistance from some of the products we sell here at Dream Kids.
Day in the Life Picture
Kids love to draw and paint and create, so turn the question "what do you want to be when you grow up?" into the subject of your child's latest masterpiece. Ask him or her to draw you a picture of what he or she will be doing when they have a grown up job. You might be surprised by what they pick. They might choose to run an Edmonton salon spa like you, or to herd elephants in outer space. Hang the results on the fridge and show them off.
Story time is a popular quiet activity that you can share with your child. Reading books together creates a bond between the two of you. Next time you have story time, ask your child to choose a book that's about what they want to be when they grow up. Be forewarned, not all of their choices will be children's books. If your child wants to be a fireman there are plenty of kids' books on the topic, but if your child wants to sell condos for rent Puerto Vallarta you might end up looking over travel brochures. This will expand his or her mind, so it's a good thing!
Kids love to play pretend. Most of the time they'll pretend to be a favorite character from a book or TV show, but next time your child has his playdate over, make a pretend game of what they want to be when they grow up. You can help them dress up in a chauffeur's cap and drive each other around in a Mississauga limousine simply by setting out a few chairs and giving the "driver" a dinner plate for a steering wheel, for example. Try out lots of careers and see which is the most fun.
Grown Up Diary
Once your child gets a little older and can read and write, you can take the "what will you be when you grow up" game to a new level. Ask them to create a diary entry as themselves in the future describing their day at work. Do they live in Etobicoke houses and work in the Financial District? Are they leading tour groups through the Grand Canyon? Children's dream careers change often, so you can create a whole book of these diary entries.
