Allison McDonald is a former preschool teacher who now spends her days learning with her 3-year-old son and baby daughter. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband and two children.

Kids love to pretend to be adults especially adults doing the jobs they see when they are out and about.  There has been a lot of road work in our area lately so we dug through the drawers to find things to make a hand held sign to pretend to be a construction zone flag person.

Gather your materials. You will need 2 plastic lids ( ours are one from an icing container , the other from riccota cheese), a pencil, some tape, a marker, sticky back foam and scissors.

Start by tracing the lids on the foam , writing stop on the red and slow on the yellow then cutting out .

Make notches in the lids.Tape the pencil in.

Tape the lids together sandwiching the pencil.

Peel off the backing of the foam.

Stick on. Play.
