Make a Job Book for Labor Day

fire highter

Labor Day is more than a time to have family picnics and play outdoors. Of course, you can certainly do those too! But you can also use Labor Day as a time to help your young child learn about what different people do. Help your child to do some research and then create a “Labor Day Jobs” book. This activity is easy to adapt for all different age groups. Preschoolers can draw pictures (and an adult can help with writing a few simple words), while older kids can draft paragraphs to include with each profession.

Materials

  • Cardboard – reuse the front and back of a cereal or cracker box
  • Construction paper
  • A hole punch
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Markers or crayons

How-To Steps

  1. Create a cover and a back for the book. Cut the cardboard into rectangles or squares.
  2. Draw on the cover. Your child can create a portrait of a worker or draw a picture that features several different professions. Add a title, your child’s name and the date (with the year).
  3. Cut the construction paper to match the size of the cardboard, if needed.
  4. Research different jobs. Read books about workers or go online.
  5. Make one page for each profession that your child has chosen. Your child can draw a picture of the person at work.
  6. Line up the cover, the pages and the back. Punch two or three holes on the left side, matching them up for the cover, pages and back.
  7. Thread the yarn through the holes to bind the book.
