Firemen are the unsung heroes of our world, battling raging infernos, saving people, and rescuing kittens. It’s no wonder that children look up to them! Let’s honor their commitments and our child’s adoration by throwing a Firefighter Birthday Party!
Cut out red cardstock into the shape of a fire truck and, with black marker, draw in the windows, lights, and side ladder. On the back, write in your party details. There are cute pre-made fire truck invitations available, as well. Decorate in colors like red, yellow, and blue.
Before hand, contact your local fire department to arrange a tour for the kids. Often, they provide coloring books, badge stickers, and/or fire hats for the excited crowd, as well as let them peak inside an actual fire truck. Ask your tour guide to have someone put on the full Turn-Out Gear, so the kids can a) learn not to be afraid and b) see how cool and heavy the items are. Back at “party central,” you can have a Fireman Obstacle Course for the kids to “train” on and some quiet time with firefighter coloring pages (or the coloring books from their tour).
Serve up firefighter chow like chili, hamburgers, potato salad, chips & salsa, and tomato soup. A fire truck birthday cake would delight and thrill the birthday crowd!
Firefighters are like Superman to our kids so everyone will have a blast at your Firefighter Birthday Party!
