“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
This is a question our homeschool family explored last month, with our two oldest creating reports on their decisions. From singers, to scientists, and YouTubers, they had a long list of careers they want to explore. So, seeing that 2019’s Doodle for Google contest is centered around “When I grow up, I hope…” made my heart sing.
We’re so excited to be part of this sponsored conversation on behalf of Google, because investing in our kids’ dreams is a big part of our lifestyle, and Google’s platform. Thank you to Mom It Forward Influencer Network for allowing me to be part of their community, and bring this information to our community.
Growing Up With Doodle For Google
We tend to have lots of conversations in our home about growing up. Our kids love to ask questions about what they will be able to do and experience once they are older. As their parents, we love to remind them about all the change they’ll create once they start their adulthood journey. We also remind them of the change they can create, and accomplishments they can attain, right now. Being part of the Doodle for Google contest is one of those accomplishments.
If you haven’t heard of the Doodle for Google annual art contest, here’s some quick information.

How cool is this? This would be a great after-school activity for your kids to do. Just imagine: your children could end up with their doodle on the Google homepage, and even win some scholarship money from taking some time to draw their hopes and dreams. That’s so surreal!
This year’s guest judges are Jimmy Fallon- host of “The Tonight Show,” Kermit the Frog, and Mandy Manning- 2018 National Teacher of the Year. I mean, even the judges are awesome.
All doodles must be submitted by March 18th, 2019, so be sure to have your kiddos create theirs as soon as they can. Good luck and have fun!
