The Community Helper Craft template PDF makes it easy to cut out the craft pieces

This PDF is much longer than my average craft. It has 22 pages including: the basic craft shape, hats (in color and black & white), accessories (in color and black & white, and labels.

Step 2: Cut Out the Community Helper Craft Shapes

Print the Free Community Helper Printable template. You will be stapling the craft pieces to colored paper and cutting out as many shapes as you need.

print the Community Helper craft template and staple it to multiple sheets of paper before cutting. In this image, I’m cutting out yellow and black hair at the same time.

If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.

Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

The basic craft pieces include the square “body”, face, hair, and eyes.

Step 3: Print and Cut out the Job Accessories

After you finish cutting out the craft shapes, you can choose if you want to print the job accessories in color or in black and white.

You or the children can cut out the hats & accessories that coordinate with the community help that you’re making.
