Craft idea: Ask your children what they want to be when they grow up, then google for “(insert occupation name here) coloring sheet” and print it for them to color, or simply allow them to draw their desired occupation. Tell them what you wanted to be when you grew up, and talk about different jobs people do to provide for their families. Make sure to hang up their art when they’re finished!
