Fire Safety for Preschoolers with a Lowe’s Build and Grow Project

Evan loved building this firetruck with fire safety cards from Lowe's! Lowe's Build and Grow projects are meant for slightly older kids. However, with a bit of help, a toddler or preschooler can do these projects too!

Today, Lowe’s Build and Grow offered a Fire Safety project! They frequently hold free workshops for kids to have a chance to build something, but I only found out about those this summer when they did a series of Avengers projects. I can’t believe we weren’t going sooner! It’s such a great opportunity for Evan to do something, and at no cost.

It’s geared toward kids slightly older than Evan, but we’ve found that with a little help, Evan is very capable of doing these projects. Today’s project was a fire truck with fire safety note cards – 8 double-sided cards with tips. Evan of course didn’t build it all on his own, but he did a good amount, and he felt accomplished doing what he could.

The Lowe’s project inspired us to focus more on fire safety. I found some great fire safety printables from Royal Baloo that matched the theme and worked on other great skills for preschoolers – like cutting, tracing, colors. These were a great way to keep the conversation going and focused on fire safety, instead of him simply playing with the fire truck for a few minutes and moving on.

Since we don’t do worksheets often, Evan loved getting the chance to do these! We talked about each word and went over the letters. It was a great learning experience! The word “extinguisher” was a fun one to go over.

I saved some of the printables for later to bring the topic up again. We still have a lot of work to do in teaching Evan his fire safety tips, but these definitely make it more fun for a preschooler. I would also love to take him to a fire station though! That would be the ultimate in excitement, I’m sure.

We used a project from Lowe's Build and Grow and a free printable set to start the conversation of fire safety.

What resources do you use to bring the topic of fire safety up?

  1. What a great idea. Anytime you can make learning fun, it’s a win for mom. And what little boy doesn’t love fire trucks! Evan looks like he thoroughly enjoyed it! Love Lowe’s and good for them for including kids in their project ideas.

  2. This is a really cool way to teach kids about fire safety. If I recall correctly, we taught our son by watching an episode of Dora together that was all about fire safety.

  3. I love this post. You can never start this conversation too early, nor can you discuss it too much. This looks like a great way to have it.

  4. Super fun!! We just visited the fire station and my son loved it so so much!! I bet he would get a kick out of this!!

  5. This is a great project to teach about fire safety and I love printables which make learning both fun and educational.
