1-2-3 Come Do Some Fire Safety Writing Prompt Craftivities With Me
I'm having a great time dreaming up quick and easy fire safety activities for October's Fire Prevention Month. I hope you find something here that you and your kiddos will enjoy.
One of my personal favorites is "Hot Tips For Fire Safety." I designed a matchbook to feature the hot tips. Simply trim and fold a sheet of construction paper to make the matchbook. (Pattern included.)
On the outside of the matchbook it says: A perfect match: Smart kids and fire safety.
Flip it open to find a list of hot tips at the top, and the matches on the bottom, with a warning to never play with matches.
When everyone is done, review and discuss the tips.
For writing practice, have older students make up a list of their own tips, or have them write additional advice on the back.

My Y5's loved to make and wear hats and crowns, so I designed an easy fire helmet for your kiddos. Older students can write several fire safety facts on the front, back or rim.
You could also make extra badges for children to wear. They say: "I'm fire safety smart. I'm alert, so I won't get hurt. "
For extra reinforcement, have students don their hat, pick a partner and give each other fire safety advice.
For more fire safety fun, make a flaming dangler. This craftivity also reinforces the importance of not playing with fire. I used the universal "no" sign to make the top portion, with a 3D flame dangling from the bottom.
These look wonderful suspended from your ceiling, as they spin in the breeze. Older students can simply make the larger flame and use it to write 3 different fire safety ideas on it.
I've included a list of fire safety writing prompts for them to choose from. Click on the link to view/download the fire safety writing prompt craft.
I've also included a smaller black and white version that students can color and take home to share with their families. There are 3 on a page for quick printing.
Both places I found the song posted, did not know the author. It was simply too cute not to share. I hope you enjoy it too!
Well that's it for today. Thanks for visiting. It's time to find the rest of my October books. Looking through stories always gives me zillions of ideas.
What better way to spend a few hours. I hope you can pop by tomorrow for the latest FREEBIES. Wishing you an ed-venturous day.
