Why can I still see some people outside?

While some of us can work from home or stay safe inside, our neighbors have really important jobs that mean they have to leave.  

 

Some examples: Doctors and nurses have to go to the hospital to help people get better.

 

Police officers have to keep the streets safe and in some places their job is even to make sure people stay inside.  

 

Supermarket cashiers have to make sure that everyone can get food to eat at home.   Who else needs to go outside to do their jobs?

How To Play

Have you seen the badges that policemen wear? They help us know who they are.  Sometimes, people get badges when they do a good job at something  

 

(Use an example your child might be familiar with, like scouting, the military, or a sticker they might get at school for a good deed)

We’re going to make badges for those people that have to keep going to work every day. Who are some of those people?

  •  

  • Doctors, Nurses, Policy officers, Truck drivers...

    •  

1.   Help your child cut out small shapes as badges.

2.   Draw and decorate the badge for people who are doing important jobs

 

Educational moment: Help your child think through why some jobs are essential. What are these people doing?

 

3.   Make badges for people in your home, including the things they are good at. For example, Dad might get a tomato badge for his cooking skills.

 

4.   Use tape to attach the badges to the people in your household.

 

These badges can be gifts for anyone, or they can be used in your next role-playing

Grown-ups, you can add your job to the list too--we know it's important!
