Last Thursday the local fire department visited Trevor’s preschool. And in true Trevor fashion he developed a mini-obsession with the idea of firefighting. He had to wear his fire helmet all weekend, including to his OT session on Friday. If I hadn’t made him take it off, I’m sure he would have slept with it and bathed with it too, lol 😉
So to go along with his new-found interest in firefighting we came up with a fun way to play firefighters. I cut out some red construction paper in the shape of flames and taped it to our pantry door. Then I grabbed a recycled paper towel roll and stuffed blue tissue paper in one end to create a fire hose. I got out his scooter board to use as a fire truck (and work on those gross motor skills too!). He insisted that fire trucks have to be red, so I ended up duct taping a red kitchen towel to the top of the scooter board for him.
He had a blast “fighting fires”. I loved seeing his play skills blossom and was impressed at how much better he is at the scooter board (yay for progress!).
I hope you all have as much fun fighting fires as we did this weekend 🙂
And sorry the picture is a little blurry. I’m blogging from my phone a lot now given the hectic, sleep-deprived life I’m leading 😉
