Career Day: Should Children Dress Up for Career Day?

Career day is one of the fun events that many schools host for children. Children have big dreams, and they are always excited to share their ideas and opinions with friends and the people that they love. Career day allows them to embrace their dreams through research, show and tell, and even through shadowing adults who work in their chosen fields. Dressing up automatically makes a child's day far more adventurous, allowing the child to really "get into character."

Why Is Dressing Up Important for Career Day?

Children have wild imaginations and they are always finding a way to unleash their creativity. With career day, many children like to dress as their role models so that they can step into character for their peers, and they feel that it helps other children to understand why that particular career is so important to them. For example, a child who wants to be a firefighter might show off all of the protective features of a firefighter's suit, explaining how dangerous the job is and how courageous the town's firemen are. For a child who wants to be a vet, he or she might wear some children's scrubs and demonstrate the tools a vet almost always has within the pockets of those scrubs. Costumes can be a very positive way to help kids understand the many different career choices that are available to them.

Why Some Schools Prohibit Costumes

In many schools, dressing up for career day just isn't an option. This is definitely upsetting for the children, but staff in those schools worry that costumes could be a very big distraction during lessons, or that the costumes could become dangerous. Bulky costumes might cause the student to trip, while others could be particularly noisy (such as those with lots of jewelry). Children could also begin trying to share parts of their costumes, causing a disturbance while the teacher is speaking.

For schools that permit dressing up for career day, they are allowing children to embrace their dreams for the future while they learn all about the fields that interest them the most. Anything that helps to boost a child's confidence to shoot for the stars is definitely worth taking part in; even if it means changing in and out of costume during the event.
