Labor Day Activities for Kids

jobs-day

Are you already planning a Labor Day celebration? If you need a few fun activities for the kiddos, check out these ideas! Whether your child is a preschooler, in grade school or older, you can adapt each activity to fit your child’s developmental level and needs.

Try Out a Job

What does your child want to do when they grow up? Do they want to decorate cakes, teach, work in a lab, build bridges, help sick people to heal? Ask your child what type of job they see themselves in. After they choose, try a modified version of the job. This may include cooking dinner for the family (if your child wants to work as a chef), exploring and experimenting (if your child wants to be a scientist) or other job-related activities.

Job Portrait

Your child can magically transform themselves into the worker of their choice—through art. Trace your child’s outline onto a piece of plain gift wrap or butcher paper. Give your child crayons or markers to turn their outline into a bus driver, police officer, pilot, scientist or any other worker.

Job Interview

Does your child really know what to expect from their would-be future career? If you have a family member or close family friend who works in the profession, schedule an interview. Your child can talk to the worker and get the inside scoop!
