Creating the Fire Truck Craft
Here is how the trial for this craft turned out:
First we put the body of the fire truck on black paper. Then JDaniel added the windows and white bumper area. I think I could have cut a longer strip for the bumper. It really didn’t stick out very far in the front or back of the fire truck. I may need to make these a little longer for the class.
The windows for the fire truck were moved around a lot. JDaniel had ideas about where they needed to go and not go a couple of times. They really could go anywhere on the front of fire truck and could be turned vertical or horizontal. I think not having a specific place for the windows gives the children can invitation to make their trucks unique.
I think it will be fun to do this craft with JDaniel’s class. We had fun working on it together. It would also be great to create with your children during National Fire Safety Month in October. They would probably like to read Meeow and the big box and make a fire truck too.
