Hi FoxyC,

Here are some resources on Education.com that you may find helpful...

First, an article to read before doing the exercise with your child/children..

When I Grow Up:
http://www.education.com/magazine/article/Ed_When_I_Grow_Up/

Second, here's a creative arts and writing activity that is designed for third-graders, so may require some adjustment for preschoolers (such as gluing magazine cut-outs of career types vs. freehand drawing, or helping the children by writing the words for them)...

Make a "When I Grow Up" Poster
http://www.education.com/activity/article/what-i-want-to-be-poster/

Lastly, here's an activity designed for preschool that isn't exclusively focused on "when I grow up" but that includes this concept as one possible step in the activity...

Make a Preschool Yearbook

I hope you and your preschooler(s) enjoy whichever activity you choose!

Hey FOXYC,

That is a excellent question, I am trying to start an organization where kids can go after school, and so far so good. When the younger children come we immediately get into character and I have them pick out dress up clothing to try on maybe a firefighter, police officer, princess
etc... then I have them research there jobs along with a description of their job duties, the pay rate, as well as the pros and cons. The children be so happy with what they need to do.

As an added bonus I would pay them at the end of the week in play money, and take out taxes and have them also pay for the things that they need and want. I have a store where they can make purchases I even let them establish a line of credit, to also lease bikes and other things that they would like to use for the week.
