The Sims™ 4 Parenthood* Game Pack is now available on Origin for PC and Mac, and we’ve talked about the effects of being a good (or bad) parent with Character Values, as well as the parenting skill and the new problems you may need to discipline. Today, we’re going to talk about some of the side things that may or may not affect these other aspects, but are just plain fun on the surface level. 

By far the coolest object in The Sims 4 Parenthood, and one of the coolest we’ve ever done, is the school project. Children and teens will be sent home from school with new school projects. They’re like extra credit, going above and beyond homework. There are several projects, including an architectural bridge and even a backyard rocket. Even better, there’s a wide range of outcomes, including a shoddy, sputtering volcano, or a magnificent two-stage homemade rocket.

Another emotional favorite for me is the sack lunch. My mom used to always pack me a sack lunch every day for school. It’s one of those significant touches that really show the day-to-day work of a parent - and it’s a wonderful Simsy touch.

Children looking to flex their creative muscle can build with blocks, even with their siblings or parents, to have a blast and create wondrous, blocky shapes. Or, children with the new teddy bear doctor play set can practice with their stethoscope to listen for its fluffy, cotton-stuffed heart. It’s so dang cute!

There are other great story objects, like the family bulletin board for leaving notes and setting curfew, or the journal, where teenagers can leave their innermost thoughts (for their jerk older brother to find!). 

The Sims 4 Parenthood is packed with activities that are all about the family life at home. When your Sims aren’t teaching their children how to be better citizens, or ignoring their most glaring faults, they can sit back and watch their children learn empathy with their toy bear or new creative skills playing with blocks.

The Sims 4 Parenthood is a visual feast for the eyes and there’s just so much to do. We can't wait to see what creations and stories you bring to life with the new content.
