💡Skills: Pretending to be a firefighter builds skills like creativity, expression, and problem solving.
You might be familiar with Blaze — a monster truck who solves math and science problems. In one episode, he even fights a five alarm fire! In this activity, your child can pretend to be a firefighting hero, too!
☑ Printable (optional)
Here’s how to explain this activity to your child:
If your little hero has a hard time, help him or her pretend to fight a fire and read a book about fighting fires! If your little hero needs a challenge, work with him or her to write down a fire hero story and draw pictures to go with it. Review the resources from the National Fire Protection Association and think about whether there’s more about fire safety you can practice with your child.
Kids can learn more by watching Blaze fight a fire and creating a booklet with facts about fire dogs — dalmatians like Marshall, and creating a helmet they can wear during their pretend play time.
