Community Helpers 

Doctor’s Kit

Child colors the first-aid cross red and adheres bandage on the inside of the kit. Adult helps cut/paste items into place.


Garbage Sorting Task

Card stock with 48 stickers from the Dollar Tree – I laminated and added Velcro dots for a fun and reusable sorting activity! A bit advanced for the tot-school set, but a great learning resource for later.

You can also add a small permanent marker dot in coordinating colors if you wanted to provide a control of error (allowing your child to self-check his or her own work – a guiding Montessori principle).

Laminated recycling pieces

We also love these puppets by Melissa and Doug, featuring a construction worker, doctor, police officer and firefighter. I leave them out on our shelf work station for open play during Community Helpers week.
