These edible fire trucks couldn’t be easier to make, and are a great snack after a day of fire-fighter dress-up. The only adult prep work involves cutting the graham cracker into a fire truck shape and cutting fruit leather or roll ups into ladders. Then let the kids have at it- they’ll soon have a decorated truck fit for quenching any hungry appetite.

What you will need:

  • Whole graham cracker (one per truck)
  • Frosting. Using an edible adhesive like Wilton’s Dab-N-Hold makes this job even easier. You can use this for adhering ladders and windows.
  • Oreo cookies (two per truck)
  • Gumdrop
  • Fruit roll up or fruit leather

Step 1

Using a serrated knife, cut one top corner from each graham at a 45°angle. Use light pressure & a sawing motion to create a clean cut.

Step 2

Carefully separate the Oreo cookie in half by twisting the sides apart. Place Oreo wheels onto graham.

Step 3

Using knife, cut ladder shape & window frame bars from fruit roll.

I found my belief in the importance of pretend play through two paths. First, during my childrens’ formative years, I developed an appreciation for crafting, games and dress-up as I saw my kids confidence grow as they succeeded on their imaginary adventures.

Hi Christie,

In the picture of the fire truck above, we just set the gum drop in place to give the visual effect for the kids. If it falls away, I sometimes use just a little bit of frosting to secure it. I hope that helps!

How do you get the gum drop to stay on the Graham cracker?
