What is Your Dream?

3.3 based on 7 ratings

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Magnetic sheets (found at a craft supply store)
  • Sheet of paper

What You Do:

  1. Have your child take a moment and think about what she wants to "be" when she grows up and how she hopes to be living. Ask her to imagine what type of achievements she hopes to have accomplished. Does she hope to go to a particular school? Play in a certain sports tournament? Encourage her to create a list of all of the goals and dreams most important to her.
  2. Help her cut out small "thought bubble"-shaped clouds from the construction paper; remind her that she will want to cut out one bubble for each goal that she has written out. She can make the clouds out of white paper or cut them out paper of each color of the rainbow; the choice is hers!
  3. Once your child has cut out one cloud for each goal, ask her to articulate a few of her dreams. Take over and write one on each cloud.
  4. Help her to carefully cut strips off of the magnetic sheets. These are usually self-adhesive on the back, so she will just need to peel off the paper backing and stick one to the back of each cloud.
  5. Once each bubble has a magnetic strip attached, allow your child to hang her goals up on the fridge and share her visions for the future with those passing by.

Invite your little one to change or add to her "dream clouds" as her plans and goals for the future develop over time.
