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.
One the paint has dried, glue your fire truck together. Cut 6 wheel from cardboard and paint them.
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!
We also made a ladder using paddle pop sticks. Once your engine is assembled now you are ready to play!
