My son and his 2 friends did a When I Grow Up I Want To Be craft this past weekend. It turned out really cute and was interesting to see what they picked.

We used the Melissa & Doug Create-A-Person Pad. The sheets are just a simple silhouette in 4 different skin tones.
My son (5 yrs old) said that he wants to be a chef. His buddy (6 yrs old) wants to be an author and his sister (7 yrs old) wants to be a veterinarian. I placed a white sheet of printer paper over the bodies and sketched clothes for them to cut out.
I also searched for related clipart for the kids to also glue to their page. Both the boys wanted mustaches….of course! The hat on my son’s chef craft is too cute.
All three kids enjoyed making their future selves!
