2. DIY Milk Carton Box Toy
We always like using our imaginations and our resources!
We want to show to children that we can create things out of some of the objects we have around the house.
This will make them enjoy creating and playing with their homemade crafts.
We’re going to show children how to transform a common object into an ambulance toy in this printable ambulance craft template idea.
How wonderful is it that we will make a homemade ambulance toy with only an empty milk carton box?
Kids will definitely appreciate doing this craft because it allows them to design their own toy and teach them how to recycle materials.
Bring your empty milk carton box out, and let’s get to work creating a DIY ambulance toy!
Prepare the following items for this DIY activity.
We’ll need an empty milk carton box, a copy of the printable ambulance template, scissors, and glue.
Cut the ambulance parts from the template first.
Once the parts are ready, decide which side of the milk carton box you’ll use to piece together the ambulance parts one at a time.
You can print the ambulance template on construction paper or any other sturdy paper you have to make your milk carton ambulance toy more durable.
A different option is to print a copy, stick it on cardboard, and then cut it out.
You may also open the top half of the milk carton box so that children can pretend to place their other toys inside the ambulance craft.
Aside from being a DIY ambulance toy, it can also be used as a pen or crayon holder.
Incorporate this printable ambulance craft template idea into your routines since it teaches children so much about saving, reusing, and helping the environment!
3. Handprint Ambulance Craft
Do you have kids that don’t mind making a mess when they get to do something they enjoy?
If you have children in toddler, preschool, or kindergarten that enjoy spending time with their hands on something, this idea will be a wonderful addition to their routines!
We’ll be creating a handprint ambulance craft with this printable ambulance craft template idea.
For this activity, all we’ll need is white paint, a paintbrush, crayons, and paper.
Start by painting your child’s hand with white paint, and then carefully guide them as they stamp their hand on the paper.
After it has dried, use the crayons to doodle and color more ambulance parts.
Draw a picture of the windows, door, wheels, and lights.
Give the kids the freedom to use their imaginations as they color the ambulance to look just like the ones they actually see.
The printable ambulance craft template can also be used as a guide for drawing and coloring the handprint craft.
4. Letter A for Ambulance
We won’t forget to include an alphabet activity for kids with all these excellent printable ambulance craft template ideas.
Aside from arts and crafts, we’d like to combine this ambulance craft into a new learning area.
In this approach, you can start a new topic or lesson as soon as the kids finish their crafts.
To introduce and teach your children the letter A of the alphabet, use the printable ambulance craft template!
You can also prepare additional visual aids such as letter A cutouts, foam letters, and alphabet flashcards.
Introduce the letter A with the ambulance craft to incorporate this idea into your alphabet lessons.
“A is for Ambulance” or “Ambulance begins with the letter A” are some phrases to get you started.
You can also describe the ambulance’s role in the community, as well as who uses it and how.
You can also introduce the phonic sound of the letter A to your children if they are in preschool or kindergarten.
