Fireman Birthday Part Activity Ideas
1. Obstacle Course
Brave firefighters must be able to dodge falling embers (dodge ball), walk on narrow ledges (a narrow board on the ground), carry and empty water buckets and whatever other obstacles are age appropriate for your group.
2. Hot Potato
All the kids except one are in a circle. The one stands in the middle of the circle and keeps his eyes closed while a red ball is passed around. When the one says “stop” whoever has the ball becomes “it” and moves to the middle.
3. Find the Hydrant
Either use mini plastic hydrants or laminate pictures of hydrants and hide them. Kids must find the hydrant.
4. From Loving My Nest
