To conclude our investigation into the many things that start with F, we had plenty of pretend play as firemen. I painted boxes red. (We seem to always have a diaper box or two so that is what I used.) Then the boys practiced their taping skills and taped on a ladder and wheels. We already had fire hats in our play area. The boys literally played all morning with their fire trucks and rescueing me, each other, and their animals. We were rescued from the fire (couch) and then taken to the hospital (around the “roundabout” table, through the bumpy roads in the kitchen, and rushed into the emergancy room in the living room). Play CPR was given to revive the injured and plenty of kisses, hugs, and shouts were dished out when we were all better. The boys loved this activity.
