I created these simple snacks as part of fire safety program at the school. The activities also included a visit from local firefighters and Sparky the Dalmatian, a fire safety mascot.—Rhonda Walsh, Cleveland, Tennessee


  • 16 whole graham crackers
  • 1 cup vanilla frosting
  • Red paste or liquid food coloring
  • 32 Oreo cookies
  • Black shoestring licorice
  • 16 red gumdrops


  1. With a serrated knife, cut the top left- or right-hand corner off of each graham cracker at a 45° angle. Tint frosting red; frost crackers. Place two sandwich cookies on each for wheels.
  2. For each truck, cut licorice into two 2-1/2-in. pieces, five 1/2-in. pieces and two 1-1/2-in. pieces. Place the large pieces parallel to each other above wheels, with the small pieces between to form a ladder. Place the medium pieces at cut edge, forming a windshield. Add a gumdrop for light.
