Crafty Monday: Community Helpers Peg Dolls & Pretend Krispy Kreme Donuts August 27, 2012

In this post: Community helper peg dolls, pretend Krispy Kreme donuts, and bonus (Black Widow from the Avengers & pretend Pizza)

Hello friends 🙂 I hope you had a lovely weekend. It’s been crazy around here with all the second grade stuff. Also our homeschool group started back up and so did choir. So with our group, choir, and karate it’s been insane! Honestly, we finished last weeks crafts today. We started them last week but it took awhile to finish. We’ve just been so busy. Thankfully I have all but one to show you. We didn’t make the Doctor’s Bag. Most of these ideas are on Pinterest.

Here is my link:

You can find worksheets too. Some of my community helper worksheets were from ABCteach and Enchanted Learning. So as I’ve mentioned before, August is all about health and safety…also self awareness & the community. This week we are learning about drug safety and hopefully I’ll have those crafts to post next Monday. So this past week we talked about firemen, policemen, doctors, etc…..basically jobs in the community…..even the Krispy Kreme man. Here are our crafts. Enjoy the pics 🙂

Pretend Krispy Kreme Donuts– I took the top of a Krispy Kreme Donut Box and folded it to make a mini box.

I mixed some salt dough (baker’s clay) and Michael and I shaped them into donuts.  Recipe is at this link:

After they baked we painted them a brown wash (brown paint and water) the next day.

Then finally today we painted white for the glaze and put on real sprinkles. They look better without modge podge.

Michael wore his hat from Krispy Kreme.

Bonus: Pretend Pizza out of salt dough. I made this for fun.

Community Helper Peg Dolls-  I had fun making these for Michael. I used salt dough and felt for the accessories.

Policeman and Robber

Mail Carrier

Doctor & Fireman

Fire truck– I had a hard time with the fireman but the family made a fire truck and that helps with identification.

We used a cracker box, wrapped it with construction paper, Popsicle sticks for the ladder, and yarn for the hose. Chris & Michael did most of the work.

Bonus: Black Widow from the Avengers. I finally finished Michael’s Avenger’s set. Michael was begging me for Black Widow. She was the simplest to make.

PS: Michael was going to dress up and pretend to be these helpers but we didn’t get to it. Maybe we will later.
