Default Community Helpers?

Doing a unit on community helpers as my guys are SUPER into jobs and going to work lately, lots of dramatic play involving this and pretending to work.

Any ideas, inspiration or crafts you have for me would be awesome!

I am doing firemen/women for a week. Field trip to fire station scheduled, bought fire hats for all. Doing a fire drill daily, fire safety games/topics like stop/drop/roll and get out, stay out. Found a memory game that I laminated, number matching, etc

Police week- waiting for the dept to call me back to schedule a time that they can visit (we can't visit the police station since it's too far away to walk and I don't transport). Having them decorate police hats (found real white hats similar to police cap style), making a list of laws/rules we should follow, what it means to be a good citizen, cops are friends, safety rules like stranger danger, etc.

Ambulance/EMT week-can visit station since it's close, maybe even see a mercy flight helicopter. No other ideas, though.

I stopped ordering the boxed curriculum, the kids just weren't into it.

Any other occupations or ideas?
