Melissa and Doug Community Helpers

We do a big unit on community helpers and have parents come in to talk to the class about their jobs.  Before we get parents in the classroom, we talk about the various helpers in our community.  I usually have a few community helper centers that my kiddos rotate through.  Some of the activities are drawing tools community helpers use or build a city out of blocks!
I recently found Melissa and Doug on Oriental Trading and they have great high quality toys which includes community helpers!  

I got a pack that included various emergency vehicles with people, a farmer with tractor and animals, and a rug that shows the places you would see in a city.  There is a school, stores, farm, roads, and water!  My kiddos can use their imaginations to navigate through the city with their vehicles and people :)

These will be a great addition to my community helper centers and will help enforce the ideas on who and what is in a community!

* Note: I was given these items from Oriental Trading in exchange for a review.  All opinions are my own
