It’s so important for our children to know who is working in our community!
We’re really excited to share fun and community helper character themed friends perfect for kindergarten, pre-k and toddler age kids.
These characters are really great for any time of year, but especially when the lesson of the month is on community helpers of course!
These community heroes can even be a great way to keep that first grade student to shorten their screen time and build their fine motor skills by practicing with safety scissors.
Kids of all ages love doing cut and paste craft and who doesn’t love classic community helper characters?
This entire set is perfect for making wonderful memories together.
The best part is that they’re easy enough for toddlers and preschoolers, yet even older kids will have fun building heroes together.
From nurses to farmers, and chefs to mail carriers, these are a fun activity for any community helpers activities you have lined up in your preschool theme unit.

Community Helpers Math Lesson
You can really turn any play and craft time into a fun activity of learning!
Before you glue all the pieces together, ask your kindergarten or first grade kiddos to tell you how many pieces there are by counting them!
Then, practice math concepts by doing some subtraction problems.
For example, in this community helpers math lesson, start with the initial number of pieces, as you glue them together start subtracting from the pile.
Your kids will get a nice lesson accomplished all while having fun at the same time!
