If you are looking for an educational and engaging craft activity to lead your children in on a rainy day, consider making a fire hose craft that features a fire hydrant and a fire hose attached to it. You can make this craft with materials that you already have around your house. You may need to purchase a few extra sets of shoe laces -- which will form the fire hose in the craft.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place a red piece of craft paper on your work space. Use a pencil to draw a vertical rectangle aproximately the size of your hand.

  2. 2

    Cut out the rectangle with a pair of scissors.

  3. 3

    Draw two circles and one oval on the red craft paper. Cut them out with the scissors.

  4. 4

    Glue the oval on top of the rectangle. Glue the two circles on the left and right sides of the rectangle. This is your fire hydrant base.

  5. 5

    Draw a circle in the middle of the rectangle with a black marker.

  6. 6

    Punch a hole in the centre of the black circle on the fire hydrant. Slip the end of a yellow, black, white or red shoelace through the hole. Tie a knot at the end of the shoelace through the hole so it does not come out of the hole. This is your fire hose connected to the fire hydrant.
