Recycled Pull Toy Firetruck

Materials Needed

Small Milk Cartoon
Paints and Brushes
Styrafoam Cup cut in half
Bottle Caps
Yellow Yarn or String


Now you will just need to paint and  assemble your recycled materials
to create the firetruck.  Be sure to use strong holding glue-you don't want
to lose your wheels or string.  This project is not for children
who might swallow the firetruck wheels.  Adult supervised glue gun
assembly works well as a holding agent for this project.
