What You Need:

  • Cardstock or construction paper
  • Black markers
  • Printable police badge
  • Kid-friendly scissors
  • Hole puncher
  • String or yarn

What You Do:

  1. Do some research on the meaning of the police badge and the information on it. Find simple facts that you can explain to the students. For this part of the activity, the student can work with you during the research. The following are some suggested simple facts that can be explained to kindergarteners:
    • Badges are a type of reward police officers receive after they complete their training.
    • The badge is a type of symbol that lets people know the person is a police officer.
    • When a police officer receives a badge, it means he or she has accepted to do their job of making sure people are safe and following rules.
    • The badge has information to identify the officer, like an ID card.
    • The badge has various information on it like, such as the city the officer works for and their badge number.
  2. After you have done the research, ask the students what it is police officers do to keep us safe. During the discussion bring up the badge. Ask the students what kind of information they think is on the badge. Suggestion: Look on the Internet for images of police badges and compare differences amongst cities or states.  You can look at badge shapes, symbols, etc.   
  3. Print out the police badge on the cardstock or construction paper, and help kids to cut it out. 
  4. Show them where to trace the word "police" and where to write their name on the badge. Then, have them color in their badge. They can also add other information that may apply to police badges and related to the research.
  5. Punch a hole on the top part of the badge and insert a string or yarn.  
  6. Now the badge is ready to wear!
