Police officers are essential for keeping you, your students and their families safe from crime. Help your students celebrate their local police force by making police officer crafts. Afterward, you can keep these crafts as decorations in your classroom or send them home with the students.
Hand out empty toilet paper rolls to each of your students. Also hand out multicoloured construction paper, scissors, glue and crayons. Students are to design a police officer on the toilet roll by gluing construction paper to the roll. Show them a finished version to use as a guide. They can make a boy or girl police officer. Instruct them to make a police hat, a badge, a coat, trousers and anything else they want to include. Make sure they include facial features on their police officer as well. You may also want to hand out felt or cotton balls so they can make hair for their officers.
Let your students be police officers for the day by creating simple badges. Show the students a picture of a police badge to use as a guide. They can make their badge look any way they like, but must try to make the basic shape similar enough to the guide badge. Give them construction paper, scissors, crayons and markers. Students should cut out the badge and colour it with the markers and crayons. Collect the badges when the students are done and pin them to their shirts with safety pins. Take pictures of all of your students and write a thank-you note for the students to sign. Send this to the police department along with the pictures.
Hand out drawing supplies to your students. These drawing supplies should include pencils, erasers, crayons, markers and coloured pencils. Students are to create a drawing involving a police officer. They can draw anything they like as long as they don't draw anything violent. Encourage them to draw a police officer doing something nice for somebody. Students can also draw police cars if they like, or a group of police officers. Hang these up in your classroom when they are done. Send the drawings and a thank-you note to the local police force after you finish displaying the pictures in your classroom.
Use this craft to help your students keep their police emergency numbers nearby. Put all emergency numbers for your town on the blackboard. Most emergency numbers will "9-1-1" but some agencies, such as poison control centres, can't be reached directly through calling 9-1-1. Make a complete list of emergency numbers and write down the purpose of each number. Create a list of "reasons to call" and "reasons not to call." Place these reasons underneath the list of phone numbers. Students should copy this information down on a large piece of white construction paper. Have them draw pictures using crayons and coloured pencils, but make sure they have all the important information written down correctly. Send these home to place on their walls near the phone.
