Labor Day Matching Card Kids’ Craft

Kids' craft

Your kids can celebrate Labor Day with a creative learning craft! Help your child to learn about different jobs by matching what workers wear with their occupations. This is an easy-to-make card game that kids from preschool age (3 to 5-years) and up can play. Simply adapt the game as your child gets older to keep playing it for the next few years!

Materials:

  • Card stock paper
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • A glue stick

Instructions:

  1. Pick a few different occupations. Start with three or four for younger kids. Older children can choose from a wider variety. Make sure that each occupation has an easy wardrobe identifier (such as a fire fighter wears a red hat or a construction worker wears a bright orange or yellow hat).
  2. Draw the hats (or other items that the workers wear) onto card stock paper.
  3. Cut out the drawings.
  4. Make matching index cards. Cut the remaining card stock into 4×6-inch pieces. Look for a full picture of the worker in a magazine or online (you’ll need to print it if you find it online). Cut out the picture and glue it onto the card.
  5. Write the name of the worker under picture.
  6. Make a second set of cards with just the name on it (no picture).
  7. Match the hats/clothing with the picture cards.

As your child gets better at the game switch to the word-only Labor Day cards!
