Imaginative and Artsy Labor Day Activities for Kids

Your kids may think of Labor Day as the unofficial end of the summer (or the day that the community pool closes). But, that doesn’t mean you can’t help them to understand the true meaning behind the holiday. Celebrate American workers with a few fun kids’ activities!

Dress-Up

Have your child pick a few different ‘workers’ for a day of dress-up. Don’t worry about running out to buy a bunch of costumes. Search around your house, and make your own! Turn dad’s blazer into part of a police officer’s uniform, grab a brightly-colored vest to use as part of a construction worker’s outfit, put on pj’s that look like scrubs or transform a plain white dress shirt into a doctor’s coat.

Act It Out

After choosing dress-up clothes, your child’s in for a day of pretend play. This is where she truly gets to explore what it means to be a worker. Set up scenes in which she plays the role of a fire fighter, nurse, teacher or any other member of the workforce. You can get in on the action too, helping her by playing a part in her Labor Day play.

Make a Mural

Use a piece of poster board or unroll butcher paper to create a background for a movable mural. Pick a ‘working’ theme and let your child show her artistic side, using markers, paints or crayons. Hang the worker mural up each year on this holiday or use it as a backdrop for a dramatic pretend play activity!
