Fire Safety Rules and Craft
Children learn where a hose attaches to a fire hydrant and review fire safety rules while making this craft.
- Printable of fire hydrant on white paper
- Blue, red, orange and yellow paint
- A pipe cleaner or straw for the hose
- Yellow construction paper pentagon with a fire safety rule written on it
- Red marker or crayon
How to Make:
Draw a fire hydrant on a white piece of paper or print one out. Make sure the fire plug image is located to the far left of the paper so the children have room to make "fire" and "water". Give one paper to each student.
Invite the children to dip their fingers in the orange, red and yellow paint to make "fire" on the white paper. Next, give each student a piece of tinfoil and blue paint. The children use finger-paint to make the foil blue and color the fire hydrant with a red marker or crayon.
Let the project dry. Next, help the preschoolers to glue a straw or pipe cleaner (hose) to their fire plug. Help them to cut out their blue tinfoil (water) and place it so it appears to be spraying out of the hose.
Review the fire safety rules and give each student a rule written on a yellow pentagon to glue on their fire hydrant. The pictures would make a great fire safety bulletin board.
Encourage children to learn about fire safety this October. Making these easy preschool crafts of a fire hydrant are a fun way to encourage creativity while teaching preschoolers important safety rules about the dangers of fire. Before making the crafts, read books, sing fire safety songs, and engage children in activities that reinforce fire safety rules.
