Teaching your child fire safety can be a fun activity for the whole family. There are numerous agencies that offer free downloadable activity sheets and coloring pages to help make fire safety fun. You can also get a free McGruff Safe Kids ID Kit delivered right to your door.
Color and learn with the Sesame Street Fire Safety coloring book published by FEMA. In this coloring book, your child will learn what items not to touch, how to cool a burn, what to do in the event of a fire, how and where to escape a fire, as well as, what smoke alarms sound like. They’ll love learning with the help of Sesame Streets furry friends like Elmo, Abby Cadabby, and Cookie Monster!
The City of New York Fire Department also offers a free printable activity and coloring book. The book teaches them who to call, tells them about firefighters, what to do if they are burned, and more. They can play connect the dots, color, and create a fire escape plan. Once your child finishes the activity pages you can award them with their very own Fire Safety Award which is included in the printable pages.
