Be Cool About Fire Safety!

The second week in October is when we usually learn about and practice Fire Safety! This year the local fire department came out to talk with the children and teach them about the equipment they use and the different types of fire trucks. 

In class, we read many fire safety books and created a great art project to go along with this poem:

Five little firefighters sleeping in a row.
Ring goes the bell and down the pole they go!
They jump on the engine and put out the fire.
Now they're back home and they sure are tired! 

First, paint a hand red and put in down on the paper!

Then, use a dot marker or a circle cut out of construction paper for the heads! Let the children draw faces and a hat on each one!  Draw a black line in between each one for the water hose.

Then, I put some glue down and the children sprinkled blue glitter for the water!


  1. This is a great idea. I will have to try that.

  2. Love this idea! I am pinning it to use next year, thanks! I'm your newest follower :)
