Be His Good Challenge - Fire Department

#BeHisGood

Our modern heroes of the day.  Firemen.  Even though my kids have never seen a real live fire beyond the one in our backyard.  Or really haven't seen a fireman or woman in action.  They are still obsessed.  They love the big red trucks that have the big loud sirens.  We put firemen and women on a pedestal in our house.  So this week they'll be extra excited (and probably extra nervous) to meet their real live heroes and say thank you for all that they do and the sacrifice that they make.

A Firetruck or firemen  I found these two crafts to be adorable; we'll actually see how this goes with my two and four year old.  It could turn out great, it could be a big yellow and orange blob on a red piece of paper.  It's the thought that counts right?!  Just enjoy the project and teach the kids all about Firefighters and how they help our city.  Go to the local library and find firetruck books.  Remember this challenge is more about the purpose and less about the project.

Challenge:  Find your local fire station, call ahead if you need, and allow your children to hand off their beautiful artwork and say thank you to the men and women who keep them safe.

Then spread the word!  

Take a photo and post on Facebook or instagram and use the #BeHisGood.  Then encourage others to join you in saying thank you to the men and women at your local firestation!  

Thank you for joining us this week in being His good.
