Do you have any budding fire chiefs in your household? This is a simple craft idea that will keep the kids busy for hours.
Get together one large box, 4 paper plates, 5 split pins, scissors and coloured paper and red and black paint.
Paint the entire box red and four paper plates black. Whilst drying, get the kids to cut out colured paper. Choose blue rectangles for windows, yellow circles for head lights, white circles for hubcaps, and yellow rectangles for the ladder.
Glue them all onto the box and use split pins to attach the wheels. Sit back and watch the fun!
