Fire Crafts for Kids
Help children make safe fire crafts with no flames involved. (fire place with shelf and fire image by Kirubeshwaran from

Give children their own safe way to play with fire by creating fire crafts from paper and other household materials. Include with a fire craft a lesson about fire safety to add a real world application to the children's projects.

Crepe Paper Fire

Use tissue or crepe paper in orange, red and yellow to make a paper fire. Have children cut pieces of tissue into triangles the height they want their fire. Glue the base of the triangle to empty paper towel rolls glued together in an X shape. Use brown markers to colour the paper towel rolls brown for the fire "logs."

Egg Carton Fire Truck

Children can use red craft paints and half of an empty egg carton to paint their own fire truck. After painting the egg carton and waiting for the paint to dry, they draw wheels onto the sides of the egg carton and a ladder along the top or side. Alternatively, they can cut out round wheels and a ladder from construction paper and glue them to the painted "fire engine." As an alternative to a cardboard egg carton, use an empty cardboard milk carton covered with red construction paper.

Fire Puzzle

Children can turn a picture of a fire into a game. Let children draw a fire using crayons or markers onto a piece of heavy cardstock or cardboard. Then give them a marker to draw the outline of puzzle pieces over their fire picture. Instruct the children to cut their fire drawing along the puzzle lines they made. The children now have their own fire jigsaw puzzle.
