Children can make these tiny fire trucks for a preschool or kindergarten treat.
Each fire truck takes one and a half graham crackers. This craft makes a great snack that kids can make themselves (with some guidance). This craft can be messy!
- Paper Plate
- Graham Crackers (1.5 per fire truck)
- Tiny Ritz crackers (for wheels)
- Stick pretzels
- Black licorice
- Softened cream cheese (or thick frosting)
- Red food coloring
- A red jellybean, a red Dots candy, a cherry, or a strawberry
Have an adult mix a few drops of food coloring to the cream cheese (or frosting). The children will use this edible “glue” to put their fire truck together.
Start with a whole graham cracker. Using the back of a spoon, spread some of the “glue” on one side of it.
Put half a graham cracker on top of the “glue.” This is the cab of the fire truck.
“Glue” a red jellybean, a red Dots candy, a cherry, or a strawberry on top of the cab. This is the fire truck’s red light.
“Glue” four of the tiny Ritz crackers to the sides - these are the wheels.
On the back of the truck, “glue” two pretzels parallel to each other. Then “glue” in broken pieces to make a tiny ladder.
“Glue” on a piece of licorice - this is the firehose.
You now have a tiny fire truck that is great for snack time!
