Labor Day Activities for Kids
Are you looking for a way to celebrate Labor Day with your child? Exploring professions is a fun, kid-friendly way to understand the labor market. Instead of lengthy lectures that your child may not understand, try a kid-friendly activity. If you’re not sure where to start, check out these holiday ideas!
Cooking with kids is a fun and easy way to explore this profession. Choose a favorite recipe and assign age-appropriate tasks to your child. Younger children can measure and mix, whole tweens and teens can try more complex prep-work.
Set up a pretend play waiting room at home—with your child’s stuffed animals and dolls as patients. Your child can diagnose the toys, create treatment plans and act out the role of a medical provider.
Create your own artsy stop sign for this pretend play activity. Have your child draw the sign onto poster board, cut it out and write the word “Stop” on the front. Attach a wide craft stick to the bottom to complete the prop.
Take a trip to the backyard for some pretend play farming fun. Your child can dig in the dirt, weed the garden with you or care for whatever is already growing.
