Rescue Hero Party -4yr- Firetruck Visit
Jennifer in Manlius, New York
For my son's 4th birthday we had a rescue hero party. I went to the Fischer Price website and printed out their rescue hero invitation and scanned in a picture of my son dressed as a fireman and placed him next to Billy Blazes.
As the kids arrived, I gave each a fireman hat (bought at a local party store) and a name badge that I printed from the Fischer Price website and laminated. They sat at a table and colored on Rescue Hero coloring pages. We played rescue-rescue-hero (a form of duck-duck-goose). I drew a picture of a cat stuck in a tree on a large sheet of paper. I printed small Billy Blazes with each child's name on the bottom (I used Wendy Waters for the girls). Then the played rescue the cat from the tree (a form of pin the tail on the donkey). I made a firetruck cake.
The big surprise came next. I called the local fire department and they sent a firetruck to the house. Four firemen also came and let the kids climb in the truck. They were great!
We also called the police department and they sent two policemen over. The kids also got to sit in the police car. We also had a helicopter fly over the house (the sheriffs department were out training and had no problem doing it). I took lots of pictures and sent them with the thank you cards.
After all the excitement, I had each kid try on a real fireman outfit (borrowed from a friend) and took a picture to send in the thank you cards. I was funny watching the kids. We had to hold them up because it was so heavy and the boots went all the way up their legs. As they left, I gave them a goody bag filled with police cars, firetrucks, and helicopters (bought at a discount store in multipacks), police badges, pencils, rulers, and safety coloring books (donated by a local police station). The firemen gave them lollipops. All in all, it was a great birthday party!
