I Like to Drive a Fire Truck
At the art table we built fire trucks.
Last week, while I was thrift store shopping, I found
a Melissa & Doug magnetic vehicle.
It comes apart and you can switch around the parts.
Well the parts were perfect shapes for creating our fire trucks.
I borrowed the ladder from our castle.
The children chose what shapes they wanted to use and
how to piece them together.
They decided how long their fire truck would be.
How many wheels would be on their fire truck.
And how to make it look like it’s driving very fast.
After they finished creating their fire truck, I took a picture of them
wearing a fire helmet.
Then glued their pictures on to their fire truck
(thanks again Linda for a fun idea).
Now their art work is hanging in the hallway
so they can show them off to their older siblings and
other visitors to the school.
