Junior Firefighter neckerchief slide idea - Core Value Cooperation - Hometown Heroes






The Theme this month is Hometown Heroes and the Core Value is Cooperation.  I decided to make up some Junior Firefighter badge Neckerchief Slides.  I hope you enjoy them. To make them:

  • Print the instruction page and large shield PDF out on Cardstock, and cut out the shield
  • Trace the shield onto the fun foam and cut out
  • Choose either a gold badge PDF or white badge PDF and print them out on card stock and cut out the shields
  • Glue the paper shields onto the back of foam shields with a glue gun making sure the pen marks do not show  
  • Attach a back to the neckerchief slides.  I like to use 1/2" PVC pipe cut into small strips.
