Learning about the Alphabet: F is for Fire Safety

Over the course of twenty-six posts, I will introduce my own simple lessons for the letters of the alphabet. I will provide enough ideas and suggestions for a week's worth of activities.  
For the letter F, we focused upon Fire Safety.

Coloring Pages 

Mom Junction's Firefighter Coloring Pages 
There is a collection of pages that one can print for their children to color in firefighters, fire trucks, and more.


Tots and Me...Growing Up Together featured this cute hand print craft on their blog for Fire Prevention Week. I have seen multiple versions of it on Pinterest and the Internet but I really like seeing the process with step-by-step photographs.

My Mommy Style's Letter of the Day: F is for Fire
This is a simple craft that only requires glue, construction paper, a pencil, and tissue paper. I love it!


Miss Mingo and the Fire Drill 


This book addresses many fire safety tips and introduces different facts about a variety of animals. Our children made several flamingo crafts to accompany the book.

Here are some other children's books about fire safety for you to check out!

Featured Shape

Tots and Me...Growing Up Together offers a perfect craft for your children to learn about different shapes while talking about fire safety and firetrucks. What I also like about this craft is that for older children you can have them work on measuring and cutting skills to prepare the shapes to build their firetrucks.

Fire Safety Plan 

We have set a plan in place for where to meet in case we ever need to evacuate our home due to an emergency. This is a simple activity to practice together with your family.

Fire Safety Tips 

Go over with your children the different home fire prevention tips and practices. Have your children help test smoke alarms, make sure lighters and matches are out of the reach of your children, and practice "stop, drop, and roll" with your children.

Take a look at the following sites for some tips and ideas to share with your family:

National Fire Protection Association Fire Prevention Week
American Red Cross Home Fire Safety

And don't forget to be in touch with your local fire department for additional local resources.
