Let's Make a Police Officer Hat
and Badge to Honor the Police Officer an Important Community
Helper - Discuss the Letter P is for Police Officer
To pay tribute to the police officer and their dedication to serve
and protect the community, the children will assemble a simple
police officer hat and wear a badge. Children love to
dress up and do dramatic play, and this will be a welcomed and fun
Instructions for the Police Officer Head band hat and badge:
1. Select your choice of color or black and white template for
the hat and badge. I would recommend the black and white
templates because these can be colored to match the uniform
colors of the police officers in your community. Older
children may be able to help cut the large hat template.
2. Ahead of time, cut a band
about 1 to 1 1/2 inches wide and 22 inches long approx. from construction paper
or card stock. Once you print the template there is enough
paper left over on the right side to cut three strips/bands and then
tape together to form the long band as illustrated in the template.
3. The hat and badge will be assembled during the alphabet P
presentation below. Optional: Add a police
vest made with a large paper grocery bag and glue the
finished badge to it.
Other great Police Officer related crafts at DLTK's:
Officer TP Roll Craft: Young children love
puppets and this craft can be used as teacher aid to present the
activities. Make one ahead of time. Tell the children
they will make their own police officer.
A paper tube is not needed to make it, simply fold the body piece in
half, glue and have the children glue the other body parts,
attach a craft stick to hold as a puppet.
Paper Craft with Police Officer Hat: If the children
love Blue from the Blue's Clues preschool TV program, then this is
the winner and is easy for children 2+ and older.
3. Make a simple police vest using a large paper grocery
bag. With the bag opened, make a large round opening on the
bottom for the head and cut the bag open along the front. Make
round holes on the sides for arm holes. Close and lay the bag
flat and children can paint the front using tempera paint and using
a sponge. Cut a long strip of black construction paper
to form a belt - just for the front where is painted, and glue on
bag when the paint is dry. Attach the badge and the vest is
ready to wear.
