Egg carton fire truck

egg carton fire truck kids crafts by Mini Mad Things

We love doing craft projects and making something that you can then play with, this fire truck is a winner. You could get creative and make a car or digger too!

MATERIALS: Egg cartons, 2 milk bottle tops, paddle pop sticks, cardboard, rope, paint and glue.

DIRECTIONS: Cut the 'cab' shape from the lid of your egg carton. Then cut another whole lid to make the base for your fire truck. Cut a small section of egg carton to make the sirens. Paint all the egg carton pieces.

Glue your wheels to your fire truck. We also decorated our truck with bottle top head lights, windows and a fire hose. We used a large plastic screw and some rope to make our fire hose, just get creative and use what you have to hand!
