Children can make these fire trucks to pretend to ride in or to use as a toy box. If you like, you can cut out the bottom of the box (before making the craft) and the children can enter the box, carry it, and walk around pretending to be a fire fighter.
This is a messy craft. Work on newspaper and wear old clothes! Each fire truck takes one cardboard box and four paper plates.
- Cardboard box
- Four paper plates
- Red and black paint
- Three paint brushes
- Black, white, blue, and orange construction paper
Cut two ladders from orange or brown construction paper and cut two hoses from black construction paper. Cut white hub caps. Glue all of these to the sides of your truck.
You now have a great fire truck to ride in or to use as a toy box!
