How to make your DIY Fire Station
This is a job for big people! Little people get to play in it after. 🙂
First, get 2 big boxes make sure one side of each box is closed and the other is open. Put them together like this.
Choose where you want the door and cut it to the desired size making sure it can open and close before you hot glue the flaps on the top, bottom and back together.
Once its all glued cut out your windows then and take you DIY Fire Station outside be spray painted.
The crown on top was an extra box I had and just cut that pattern into it, glued it then painted it.
The Red was just too much so I put 2 stripes of Yellow Duct tape around the bottom, Red duct tape around the door and White duct tape around the windows. The door to your DIY Fire Station needs to be durable for all the opening and closing so use as much duct tape as you want.
Print out your Fire station printables.
Yay, that’s it! I’m sure your kids are going to love your DIY Fire Station that you made them. Go and enjoy some Fireman role playing with them!
