Science is always popular at our place so being scientists was always going to be fun.


– dancing worms (instructions here)

– fizzy painting (instructions here)

– electric lemon (not pictured)

More science activities here. xo


Some of the jobs that we have been talking about recently are those in medicine – doctors, nurses, chemists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists and so on.


– maths with (lolly) pills

– homemade board game with reading and a few activities (such as cutting like a surgeon and labelling body parts). We chose “pill” and “achoo” to work on “l” and “ch” sounds

– painting with medical supplies

– cookies with a medical theme

– pretend play



While we were talking about different jobs we visited the aquarium which gave us some fun ideas for diver activities and rides in our box boat. For more ocean activities see here.


– ocean playdough

– handprint ocean scene

– aquarium visit

– fine motor tong and pom pom play



During our week on different jobs, we talked about bankers and accountants.


– pretend play with our box bank and pretend money

– word search, coin toss, coin rub, ways to make up $1

– colour match with pegs and notes

– addition and subtraction

– digging for chocolate coins



We have been thinking about all sorts of jobs recently and talking about how God has made us all differently and that, while we may see these outward differences, God looks at our hearts (1 Samuel 16:7).


I made the little man a folder with worksheets for different jobs (including diver, chef, waiter, explorer,  doctor, vet, clown, scientist, librarian, cleaner, banker, boat captain, minister, musician, artist, builder) and we visited lots of places around the city and talked about all the jobs we saw people doing. He put his maps and tickets into his folder and added pictures of the places he visited into the picture of the city. We also had a paper person with outfits so he could dress it up (as a teacher, astronaut, coach, fireman, policeman and so on) and a job match, matching job titles to their descriptions.

It led to a lot of dressing up, pretend play and plenty of fun activities which I will post more about during the week. {For more activities related to different jobs see bus driver, firefighters, doctors, bakers, postmen and farmers}.
