  1. Oh, I think that thumbprint police officer is the cutest! And nothing could be easier!


  2. Linking to you… so many great ideas!


  3. Great ideas! My oldest grandson (nearly 4) loves all things related to policemen (and firemen…and Batman) and will get a kick out of these. Will have to plan on a few for our next activity.

    Thank you for visiting on SITS Sharefest day. I apologize for taking so long to get over here to reciprocate. Great spot and I’ll certainly be back!


  4. I use to teach preschool. These would of been perfect!! I found you on the Pittsburgh bloggers group. Did you guys ever meet? Are you planning on meeting again? I would love to be a part of that. My e-mail is under my contact on my blog.


    • Hi Tanya! Unfortunately we haven’t met yet, at least not that I’m aware of. I’d love for us to plan a meeting some time, I can never make it to any blogging conferences because they’re always so far away 😦 I’ll keep your email handy and if we ever plan a meet-up I’ll let you know!


  5. All of these crafts are great ideas! I am scheduled to give a series of kid-friendly speeches on police officers at my old elementary school and these are just perfect. I’m so excited!


    • I’m so glad this was helpful. I hope the kids like the crafts. It was actually pretty hard to find police related crafts on the internet…there’s so much more out there for firemen! Thanks for commenting 🙂


  6. These are such great ideas! I had no idea there was a Police week. These will be fun to do with my 4-year-old who thinks policemen are the coolest. 🙂


    • That’s awesome! Kids seem to like firemen more than police 😦 My hubby is a cop, so naturally we also think policemen are the coolest! There’s also a crime prevention week (?) in October I think, but with all of the fall/Halloween stuff I usually forget about it.


  7. I think all these crafts are so neat!!! Thank you!

    Jenn 09/21/13 is also National Thank a Police Officer Day sponsored by Whole Truth Project. http://www.ahalelaw.com/whole-truth-project/ and https://www.facebook.com/WholeTruthProject


    • Thanks for letting me know, Melanie! My husband is a police officer, but he never seems to know about these little “holidays” (kinda sad actually). I’ll be reposting this in September!


  8. What darling ideas – I know the perfect person for this!


  9. What great ideas – I know the perfect person for this!


  10. I had no idea this was a thing! These are crazy cute ideas…especially love the irony of the thumbprint policeman. 🙂


  11. My Grandchildren and a few neighborhood kids have been passing out blue light bulbs to show their support and respect for our LEO’s
