Fun ways to teach your child about Community Occupations

Our theme for February is all about Community Helpers. Here are some fun crafts and sensory bins to help teach your child about some of their future occupational goals!


Doctor Bag Craft

Doctors and nurses work hard every day to make us feel better when we are sick. Preschool Activities shares what tools doctors carry in their bags to help with their job.


Construction Site Sensory Play

Construction workers help build our communities. The homes in our neighbourhoods, the roads we drive in and the stores we shop in are all there because of the help of construction workers. We found this sensory bin on Craftulate that littles of all ages will love.


Put the Fire Out

Whipped cream is always a fun material to use in sensory bins. Teach your kids how firemen (and women) put out fires with this whip cream and powder paint fire sensory bin from Pinterest.


Police Car Footprints

The police officers in our community work hard at keeping us safe. I love these footprint police cars found on Preschool Activities.


Mailbox Alphabet Game

I love receiving mail. Don't get me wrong, I can do without the bills every month but when I open my mailbox and find a card that was sent to me for Christmas or my birthday, I can't help but smile. Thank you to Totschooling for these free printables that is great for learning the alphabet and beginning letter sounds, as well as building fine motor skills and having pretend/imaginary play.


Garbage Truck Printable Craft

When my kids were little, they would sit at the window to watch for the garbage truck to come around. They loved watching how the truck would "eat" all the garbage. Your little will enjoy cplouring/painting their own garbage truck with this printable from Learn Create Love
