Step 1: Download and Print the Free Template
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Fire Engine Craft Shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know that you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
Step 3: How to Assemble
I recommend having a finished truck so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- Glue the wheels onto the bottom of the red truck.
- Glue the white hubcaps onto the center of the wheels.
- Glue the white window onto the truck where the driver would sit.
- Next, glue the white rectangle window onto the truck behind the driver’s window.
- Glue the yellow light BEHIND the windows at the top of the truck.
- Glue the ladder anywhere you like.
- Don’t forget to write your name on the back!
