10-4, over and out! To communicate with the fire station, firefighters need a walkietalkie. This cute craft is quick and easy. Your “local” firefighter will have fun making it before using it to save the neighborhood!

What you will need:

  • Empty juice box with straw
  • Black paint
  • Paint brush
  • Silver craft foam
    White paper could be used instead of silver craft foam.
  • Scissor
  • Black permanent marker
  • Red foam sheet
    Red paper or felt could also be used for the side button.
  • Glue
  • Pencil

Step 1

Paint juice boxes with black paint. (For best coverage two coats is recommended.) Allow to dry. (1/2 hour dry time between coats).

Step 2

To make the speaker and microphone, draw a circle and rectangle onto the back of the silver craft foam. (I traced the cap of an ibuprofen bottle to make the circle, and my rectangle was 2 x 1.5 inches). Cut out square and rectangle.

Step 3

Draw a small rectangle for the “push to talk” button on the side of the juice box. (Mine was 1 x 1.25 inches). Cut out.

Step 4

Use black marker to make “dots” on the silver pieces.

Step 5

Glue or apply silver pieces to front of the juice box and red piece to the side.
