Remember when your were a kids and dreamed about what you wanted to be when you got older? Now, it’s fun to hear what my kids choose. Big Brother has almost always wanted to be a teacher, except for one short phase where he wanted to be a chef (see When I grow up I want to be ….. Kids Craft). Little Sister has always said she wants to be a princess, but this year it has changed to ‘rockstar’ – she loves singing! As a fun activity, I asked her if she wanted to make a ‘When I Grow Up’ collage craft. It’s easy to do, works on scissor skills, and allows them to be imaginative. We are also sharing a ‘Follow your Rainbow’ coloring page printable.
When I Grow Up Collage Craft
*This post contains Amazon affiliate links. Please read our full disclosure policy here.
On a sheet of paper, write “When I Grow Up I Want To Be” with a blank line. Ask your child to write what they want to be when they grow up on the blank line. Help with spelling if needed.
Find pictures to cut out that go with their future career choice. Alternatively, you could use stickers or print clipart. As an example, Little Sister said she wants to be a rockstar so we found pictures of stars, trophies, cool sunglasses, microphones, guitars, curtains and so on. We happened to have an Oriental Trading Co. advertisement catalog with all kinds of party supplies in it which was perfect for this craft.
Glue the cut pictures on to create a Future ‘Career Collage’.
Don’t forget to write the date, age and name!
