Officer Buckle & Gloria (Caldecott Medal Book) written by Peggy Rathmann, is a delightful book to read to introduce children to police officers and community helpers. And, there are so many great activities to go along with the book, like this Police Officer Badge craft for kids for Crime Prevention Month.
While the kids are working on their police officer badge craft, play the Be Careful Little Hands song for children in the background.
The Be Careful Little Hands song for children is the prefect compliment to this crime prevention month police badge craft.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s start crafting!
Craft items you will need:
- Police Badge template
- Construction paper

Print off the Police Badge template on construction paper.
Next, have the children cut out the Police Badge from the construction paper.
Then, have the children cut out a wide strip from a different color sheet of construction paper.

After that, have them write Officer and their name on the strip.
