Children are so adorable when they speak about what they want to be when they grow up. My own 6 year old wants to be a veterinarian, a teacher AND a cheerleader. I’m exhausted just thinking about that schedule.
To introduce children to new careers that they may not be exposed to every day, here are 6 fun apps that we found.
And no, they don’t have an app for future freelance writers, I looked.
Dr. Panda’s Hospital
Your child can help Dr. Panda take care of all of the animals in the hospital. They will need to greet them in the waiting room, help them to their beds, and discover and trean their illnesses.
