Kidsguide Fall/Winter 23-24 New Issue – Career Day

Welcome to Kidsguide’s Career Day! This issue, we’ve rounded up some awesome outing ideas—places that inspire kids to dream big about who they want to be when they grow up.

Explore these fun Outings (pages 3-29) and discover which ones pique your kids’ interest. Future pilot? Take a spin in a flight simulator. Aspiring zookeeper? Seek out those hands-on junior keeper programs. History buff? Time travel awaits at countless museums. Each section is a goldmine of opportunities to explore and “test drive” different careers!

Curious about what it’s really like in your dream job? Flip to Career Curiosity (page 4) for questions your kids can fire at their dream job professionals.

Don’t skip learning about Crazy Cool Careers (page 12) and Gross Careers (page 32). Maggot farmer, anyone? And guess what? We’re spilling the beans with some Trade Secrets (page 35)! Discover fun facts you may not know about various jobs.

Keep the fun going with Career Crossroads (page 36), a “would you rather” game that’ll definitely spark some interesting conversation. There’s also a Guess Who game, plus an opportunity for your kids to tell us about their dream job! More details below.
