Community Helper Tools Puzzles



Step #1
Print and cut out the Community Helpers Tools Puzzles.
Step #2
Invite your Lil’ to look at the strips and identify the tool that community helper would use.

When they have identified the tool the community helper would use, they will place their clothes pin on that tool.
For instance, on the firefighter puzzle, your Lil’ will put the clothes pin on the fire extinguisher.
