Did you know you can make a fire engine out of an empty egg carton?
If you’re not sure what materials to use, this printable fire truck craft template idea is ideal for kids because it’s so simple to create!
An empty egg carton, bottle caps, a piece of cardboard, red and black paint, a paintbrush, and hot glue are all we’ll need.
The egg carton box should first be painted red.
Once it has dried, secure the egg carton with hot glue to prevent it from opening.
You can create and cut out square forms for the side windows and rear windows on a piece of cardboard.
On the cardboard, you could also draw a ladder shape and cut it out.
Paint four bottle caps with black paint to use as wheels.
For the headlights and siren of the fire truck, leave the other bottle caps unpainted.
When all of your parts are prepared, you can put everything together using hot glue.
Attach the windows on both sides and the front of the egg carton box.
Place the cardboard ladder on either side of the carton.
Attach the bottle cap wheels on both sides first, followed by the headlights and siren.

This printable fire truck craft template idea can be incorporated into an activity where children create a fire truck using cutouts of various shapes.
Children will benefit from this activity because they will learn about shapes, fire truck parts, and patience as they follow and put the pieces together.
Let’s begin learning about shapes by cutting out some cardboard patterns for the fire truck parts.
Prepare the cardboard cutouts for the following shapes: a rectangle, a square, two circles, a triangle, and two ovals.
This shape recognition activity can begin with a simple game in which the children try to construct a fire truck out of cutouts.
Move on to identifying the shapes after they have finished assembling the parts.
You can also make this shapes recognition activity into a fun game by having the kids compete to put all of the shapes together as quickly as possible.
