Craft Instructions > Police officer Hat and Badge

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 activity.
  1. Print template of your choice. The B&W format is ideal to match to the uniform colors in your community.
  2. Color templates if applicable.
  3. Once you print the template there is enough paper left over on the right side to cut three paper strips lengthwise using a ruler. Tape the strips together to form the headband (about 22 inches) as illustrated in the template.
  4. Glue the hat template in the center of the paper headband. Adjust around forehead, tape, and cut excess paper.
  5. The badge can be attached safely to clothing with masking tape/painter's tape.

Optional > Police vest using a large paper grocery bag.

  1. With the bag opened, make a large round opening on the bottom for the head and cut the bag open along the front.
  2. Make round holes on the sides for arm holes.
  3. Close and lay the bag flat and children can paint the front using tempera paint and using a sponge.
  4. Cut a long strip of black construction paper to form a belt - just for the front where is painted, and glue on the bag when the paint is dry.
  5. Attach the badge and the vest is ready to wear.
