Thanks to Hasbro for introducing our family to the updated The Game of Life game.  We enjoyed it so much we were excited to partner together with this sponsored post to help other families find this fun family game.

What do Kids Want to Be When they Grow Up?

Kids love exploring what they want to be when they grow up.

They start in Preschool by exploring careers through creative play, dress-up, and observation.

Older kids tend to move beyond the known careers like police officer, firefighter, teacher and doctor as their horizons begin to expand through books and new experiences. Kids then want to find careers that are interesting and exciting like a video game designer, athlete, chef, race car driver, Veterinarian, Inventor, or Secret Agent.

My son wants to be a scientist. He has wanted to be a scientist since I can remember, which is funny because neither his Dad or I are really into science. We encourage him and help him explore as much science as we can.

What did you (or your kids) want to be when you grew up? Tell us below:

the best part about The Game of Life game is spinning the wheel.

This is one of my 9 year olds favorite games! He enjoys the action cards that may let him arm wrestle with Daddy or have a dance competition, but his favorite part about The Game of Life game is spinning the wheel!

Not only is it lots of fun for families to play together, but it is a great way to spark those conversations about what kids want to be when they grow up. Those can lead to job shadowing like on April 23rd Take your Kid to Work Day, extra curricular clubs, and conversations about college.
