This collection of ‘Dream Big’ activities are to help children aged 5 to 8 learn about the skills needed for different careers. It’s to encourage them think about their future. We’re also challenging stereotypes as we go.
All these activities are meant to help your little one with their reading, writing and listening skills. They may need some help and guidance, but they’ll be able to do many of the activities by themselves. You can work through the activities at your child's pace in whichever order you prefer. You can try letting them choose to see what they think will be the most fun!
