Arts & Crafts: Fire Safety


Fire Engine added 9-28-98
Original Author unknown

Need: Paper, yarn, straws

Directions: Precut circular and rectangular shapes from construction paper. Have the
children glue the precut shapes on to a piece of construction paper to resemble a fire truck. They may add yarn or string for the fire hose and use straws to make a ladder.


Fire Painting added 9-28-98 Original Author unknown

Need: Marker, paint, paper, plastic wrap

Directions: Using colors associated with fire (red, orange) squirt or draw thick lines
on the paper and add a few drops of black paint here and there. Press clear plastic wrap onto the paper and squeegee the paint around. Pull plastic off of the paper using a strong vertical pulling action. (This will cause the paint to look like fire.) When paint is dry have the children glue a black cutout of a house (windows cut out) and/or a black cutout of a fire truck.


Flame Paints with Marbles added 9-28-98 Original Author unknown

Need: Yellow and red tempera paint in small cups or bowls; marbles; box lid and manila paper

Directions:  Let children lay a piece of manila paper in the box lid. Spoon out one to three small blobs of pint on the paper and place one or more marbles in the lid.  By tilting the lid slightly the marbles will roll around through the paint and make "flame" designs. Add more spoonfuls of paint if desired to increase the color blending.


Fire Truck  added 8-18-00 Original Author unknown

Need: paper, glue, scissors

Directions: I give red long rectangles  and circles for wheels.   I do give 4.. put 2 on each side.  I also give them a larger circle and demonstrate how to make a spiral...  
cutting round and round and round to make a hose.  If time permits I would give them scraps of paper to make a ladder.  I like kids to be creative so I just demonstrate  and let them go.


911 Collage  added 9-24-00 Original Author unknown

Need: paper, scissors, and glue

Directions: Cut 9's and 1's out of paper. Then glue them onto a piece of paper.
