Little Mister on a Fire Truck

What kid hasn't gone through the love of firetrucks stage? Well, today we took a closer look at some BIG shiny trucks, and showed our appreciation for those who work to keep us safe. 
God Bless our firemen and keep them safe!

He saw his reflection in the hubcap!
We framed it and gave it to the firemen! They hung it in the firehouse.

To make the hand stamp firemen we stamped Little Mister's hand in red acrylic paint. We used a small pom-pom to stamp the faces. A foam square was cut into a hat shape and stamped with black paint. Cotton swabs were used to draw the hose, water and badges on the hats. I printed the letters and frame on the computer to fit in a 5x7  frame.

Of course we made some theme snacks during the day too! Fire Ladder cookies.


  1. hi! I am holding my very first linky party & think it would be fantastic if you came over & linked this up to the Crafty Kidlet Linky Party, i think it is fantastic!

  2. Wow, what a neat idea that framed appreciation handprint is! Maybe that is something we could do during Fire Safety Month, Week, whatever it is in October.
    And I love the ladders. Neat idea.
    Would love for you to stop by and link up at Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen at Tots and Me. Now that school has started back up I revived this weekly link up. Hope to see you there.
    Have a great weekend!
