This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
Just a small pack this time, only 3 activities but they're all for children!
I was recently putting a list together on my forum of all the skills available in Sims 3 and I rediscovered some Child skills, some of which were Base Game and others from Generations.

So these three activities make use of some of those skills! They are the Child Cooking skill (from the Base Game), the Child Gardening skill and the Child Athletic skill (both from Generations and used only with the boarding schools). I never use the boarding schools in the game so it seemed a shame not to use them. So here we are!

For these activities to show up in game, you'll need Nraas Careers Mod and Nraas Careers School. The activities work on patch 1.69.

Only Generations is required for these to work. No other packs are necessary.

The Activities

Little Llamas Athletic Club
Days: Monday and Thursday
Ages: Child
Skills: Child Athletic

Mr Gnome's Gardeners
Days: Tuesday and Thursday
Ages: Child
Skills: Child Gardening

Mini Chefs Cookery Club
Days: Wednesday and Friday
Ages: Child
Skills: Child Cooking


The activities are in English and currently supports French, German, Russian, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Greek and Spanish translations.
I'm not fluent enough in any other languages to translate, so if you're interested in translating these activities into your own language, please download the Language Strings file and open in up in Notepad.

Do this for the entire file, then attach the translation to a comment and I'll update as soon as possible.
The activities has been tested but if you do run into any problems, don't hesitate to let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
