Right through our centre the children are having fun with Fire Trucks, Firefighters and role playing. We have had Firefighters from the CFA and MFB come any visit with their Fire Trucks and bringing along their uniforms too. Children of all age groups have had the opportunity to spray the fire hoses, climb through the trucks and try on some jackets and helmets, while talking to the firefighters about what they do. This has led to some fantastic role playing for the children.
The younger children have been having enjoying making their own fire trucks from boxes and fire stations from really big boxes. The sky is the limit when it comes to what you can create from a cardboard box; trains, fire trucks, planes, cars, cubbies, caves, spaceships, castles, forts etc. And why not decorate it too!
