Flame Paints with Marbles
Materials: Yellow and red tempera paint in small cups or bowls; marbles; box lid and manila paper. 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 Engine
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
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.

What I Want To Be
Materials: large white butcher paper, tracing crayon, crayons or paints, scissors Have each child lie on a large piece of butcher paper and outline the body. When complete, have the children “dress” themselves in appropriate attire for what they want to be when they grow up. A firefighter? They will need a red suit, heavy black boots, and a firefighter’s hat. Cut out the life-size pictures and mount them for display at antioxidants.

Fire Fighter Clothing
Make fire hats out of red construction paper. Make jackets out of paper bags.

Traffic Lights
Make stop and go lights out of shoeboxes. Tape the lid to the bottom of the box. Cover with black construction paper and have children place green, yellow and red circles in correct order on the box. Red circles on top, yellow middle, green on bottom.

Make officer’s badges out of paper, cover with tin foil.

First Aid Collage
Materials: First Aid Supplies. Create a collage of first aid supplies using bandages of assorted sizes, gauze, tongue depressors, swabs, and cotton balls.

First Aid Kit
Materials: white construction paper, red construction paper, glue, shoebox, rope and first aid items such as band-aids, cotton balls, etc. Cover the shoebox with white paper. Decorate with a red cross out of the red paper. Tape one side of the lid to the box so that it creates a hinge. Add a rope handle. Put cotton balls, band-aids, and whatever else you would find in a doctor bag that the kids could play with.
