Here is a link to a great list of Fire Fighter themed activities!  Following the link is a copy of the directions for the craft we chose to do.

Fire Paintings
You will need: watered down non-toxic paint, paper, pipettes and straws. Supply each child with a straw and a piece of paper. Allow the children to use the pipette (or medicine dropper NOT GLASS) to place a small amount of paint onto a piece of paper. They may use as many colors as they wish. Then, have them use the straw to blow the paint around their picture.

Notes:  I forgot to water down our paint so it did not spread as well as it should have so we ended up using our straws to spread and mix the paint!

Here is another cute idea for a Fire Prevention Week craft from http://familycrafts.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=familycrafts&cdn=parenting&tm=16&gps=293_192_1362_524&f=22&tt=14&bt=1&bts=0&zu=http%3A//www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/miscellaneous/mfireman.html.

…Monday’s craft was a construction paper telephone to dial 911.  I forgot to post it.  Oops!
