Community Helpers Preschool Activities, Crafts, Lessons, and Printables

New February 2013 : Community Helpers and All Around Town Preschool Activities and Crafts.  Let's celebrate the work people do in our communities. As children build literacy, develop vocabulary, practice math concepts, sing songs, sort materials, and participate in dramatic play activities, they learn about the tools, uniforms, and tasks of a variety of community helpers such as police officers, garbage collectors, veterinarians, postal carriers, and more! Samples of our more than 100 Community Helpers crafts, activities, crafts, games, songs, rhymes, coloring pages, and printables.

Police Officer


I Am A Policeman
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)

I am a policeman, with my star.
I help people near and far.
If you have a problem, call on me.
And I will be there, 1, 2, 3!


Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar?
Pick one child to be the police officer and give him/her a police officer's hat to wear. Have the rest of the children chant "Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?" The police officer will point to one of the children in the group. The accused child will chant: "Who me?" and the officer will chant, "Yes you." Then, the accused child will chant, "Not me," and the police officer will ask, "Then who?" The child acting as the police officer will switch places with the child he/she pointed to, and that child will become the police officer for the next round.

The People in Our Town
Original Author Unknown
(Tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

The librarian in our town says,
"Read a book, read a book, read a book,"
The librarian in our town says
"Read a book" all day long.

Repeat with following verses:

The firefighter in our town says, "Stop, drop, and roll" ...
The teacher in our town says, "Let's learn something" ...
The carpenter in our town says, "Give me a hammer" ...
The mail carrier in our town says, "Here's your mail" ...
The doctor in our town says, "How do you feel?" ...
The dentist in our town says, "Open up" ...


Mail Carrier


Mail Carrier, Mail Carrier, Where's the Mail?
Address a pretend letter or salvage a piece of junk mail. Choose one child to be the postal carrier. This child's role in the game is to guess which of the other children has the letter/piece of mail. The postal carrier faces away from the others and closes his/her eyes while the teacher hands the letter/piece of mail to someone in the group who hides it behind his/her back. All of the other children keep their hands behind their back as well. Then, the group calls out, "Postal carrier, postal carrier, where's the mail?" and the postal carrier gets three chances to pick which child is hiding the mail.

Mail Carrier Song
Original Author Unknown
(Tune: My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean)

I get to sort the mail,
Then carry it to your home.
The mail comes from all over,
Like New York, Paris, and Rome.
Mail, mail, mail, mail,
I love to deliver the mail, mail, mail.
Mail, mail, mail, mail,
I love to deliver the mail.
