When I Grow Up Flashcards & 3 Ways to Play

post contains affiliate links.
Our latest Creative Preschool theme was When I Grow Up and while my preschooler has no clue what she would like to do when she grows up, it was a fun theme to explore!  After reading a few books, we played a few different games with our set of When I Grow Up Printable Flashcards.
Free printable flashcards to use with your preschooler exploring the different jobs he/she could have when they grow up!

After printing out the When I Grow Up flashcards, laminate them for durability {I love our Scotch Laminator}.  Show your child the different occupations he/she could have when they grow up and then play one of these games... or all three!

When I Grow Up Object Match
Fill up a tray with different objects for each occupation.  Lay out the cards and have your child match the object to the correct flashcard.

When I Grow Up Taboo
Draw a card and either act out the occupation to the other player or give him/her word clues without saying the word and have the other player guess the correct occupation.   This is a great way to expand language and vocabulary... and act a little bit silly!

 When I Grow Up Memory
Print out two sets of our When I Grow Up Flashcards and play an old fashioned game of memory.

Does your child know what he/ she wants to be when they grow up?

Can you think of some other ways to use these When I Grow Up Flashcards?

Have fun talking about different occupations with our printable When I Grow Up Flashcards Set {set includes 24 different occupations-- while not all inclusive, definitely a good introduction!} and reading these books:
