DAILY DOSE OF ART

As prescribed by Paulina Constancia

Dose # 65: Fire & Rescue 4: Little Firefighter Portrait (a sticker activity)

Today, a Fire & Rescue themed sticker activity for preschools or parties…

Dose # 62-68- Fire & Rescue
Learning Excursions and Party Theme

Dose #65:
Fire & Rescue 4:
Little Firefighter Portrait  (School or Party Sticker Activity)

The Idea: Kids make a portrait of themselves as a firefighter using stickers provided. Perfect for preschool arts & crafts activity or party activity for Fire & Rescue- themed party


Steps for the Teacher or Party Host

Step 1 – Prepare the Activity Sheet: image of a firetruck or fire station- best to use glossy photo paper. This will be where kids will adhere the sticker pieces.

Step 2- Prepare the Firefighter Sticker pieces – If you have photos of kids it’ll be a nice touch if their face is attached to the hat instead of a blank face.

Optionalities:
a) If you don’t have sticker paper just use card stock and provide kids with scissors and glue for the activity.
b) If kids are very young you might have to pre-cut all the sticker pieces. If they are old enough to handle a pair of scissors, then they can cut the parts themselves.
c) You may also add a ribbon or hanging loop onto the sticker activity sheet. I also added a couple of bells, just to make a bit of noise, since we associate firefighters with sirens.
