Today we made fire fighter hats.
The technique we used to make the badge on the helmet is called embossing.
It’s just a few easy steps.
First draw the design you want for your helmet’s badge.
We drew on a small paper plate that was cut in half.
Next use the glue gun and trace over your design.
Before we could do the next step we had to wait for
the hot glue to dry.
So we encouraged the children to blow on it.
It kept them busy and fingers away from the glue.
Now cover the paper plate with foil. Trim the excess.
The fun part is to rub your fingers all over the foil and feel your
Sometimes it was difficult to see the design but we could feel it.
Now measure a red strip of paper to fit and staple the embossed
badge to the front.
Very easy to become fire fighters.
