Labels: Fun for Kids
While we were doing a "Community Helpers" theme at work, we had the children make cardboard trucks. We used the same box for both trucks. The children had fun painting the box and loved playing in it during the week!!
Set the box out with paint and sponges. Have the children paint the box and let it dry. Cut down along two corners of the front (about half way). Fold the front in at a 45-60 degree angle. Cut the sides so they will connect with the folded front and tape it together. Cut the door by cutting strait down a side (closer to the back) and at the bottom. Place a chair inside for the seat.
To make it a mail truk, we added blue and red masking tape and a mail envelope.
To make a a fire engin paint red.
