When I Grow Up Flashcards & 3 Ways to Play

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.

Preschool Occupations Theme

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!
