Stroller Fire Truck Costume

Dress up your toddler’s stroller so he can trick-or-treat with the big kids. Make any kind of vehicle… a fire truck, a police car, a train. The possibilities are endless!


Large Cardboard Box

Matte Knife

Red Spray Paint

Yellow and White Poster Board

Tacky Glue

Broad Tip Marker

Firefighter's Hat


Cut the top flaps off a large cardboard box. Cut a large opening in the bottom (which is now the top) to fit over the top of the stroller. Turn upside down. Spray paint all five sides of the box. Let dry. Cut details of the fire truck out of yellow and white poster board. Glue to box. Slide the box down over the stroller. Make a Firefighter's Hat to complete the costume.
