What a dream field trip for a child! A few weeks ago my mother's group took the kids to the local fire department. It was so fun to see the kids all wide eyed as they toured the fire station. The tour included a fire hat and sticker for each child, a demonstration of the fire pole and free time to run around and climb on the fire trucks!
At first Z was a little hesitant and intimidated.....he had never seen the firetrucks and firefighters in person. It wasn't long though before he was running from truck to truck and even sat in the drivers seat :) He had a blast and I had such a good time watching he and the other little children explore the beloved firehouse :)
If you are able to organize a tour of your local fire department, I highly recommend it!!!
