Last night, in honor of National Fire Safety and Prevention week, our library hosted a "Eat a Firetruck" Event. Not to be outdone, the boys and I did our own firetruck activities before we went!
We played with fire trucks (B's newest thing is to push cars with just one finger.)and put them in order of size.We worked on the Lego firetruck that W started on Sundaylistened to a firetruck song, and read fire truck books.W made a firetruck out of basic shapes,and reviewed more shapes with fire truck Bingo! He got them all on the first try, even the shape words!Before we knew it, it was library time! When we got there, we saw a real firetruck! (I thought it was planned, but turned out a Transformer right next to the library was on fire...)We checked in. W sat on the rug only long enough for the program to start, but preferred my lap for the story, the song and the visit from real firemen.
The firemen let all the kids try on their fire jacket, but W wanted no part of it. (I even tried to bribe him to do it, but even ice cream wouldn't budge him from my lap- especially since right about that time, the electricity went out because of the blown transformer!)
He made his edible fire truck in the dark.
When we got home, W wrote about his favorite part of the day (check out the erasor and tatoo! B loved putting the hat on and off of us!). The night ended with firetruck pajamas!Linked to Preschool Corner, StArt, Show & Tell Blog Hop, Tot Tuesdays, Read. Explore.Learn and Kids Get Crafty.
