How to make a Fire Extinguisher Candy Bucket?

Does anyone have any ideas on making a Fire Extinguisher Candy Bucket/Pail for my Son's Fireman Costume???

He is 4 years old, so it needs to be made lightweight.

Thanks in advance!

  • What about using his fireman's hat as a candy catcher? Then you can carry a bag that he can empty the candy into occasionally. Or, maybe go to a fire station, and see if they have any "retired" fire boots that they would be willing to part with. Then just line it with a plastic bag... OR, find a square basket and print out 4 fire extinguisher templates like this , and glue them to the sides.

  • Cute idea BTW. I always do something like that with my lo's. This year for my fisherman I am making a paint can with worms glued to it. For my mermaid something a butterfly net with shells, and for my nemo????? An anemanee (sp)????? LOL

  • I like the 2 or 3 liter soda pop bottle idea. trim off the top, cover rough edge with tape. You can add a hose and nozzle to the side. Any tall narrow can would work, maybe larger diameter than a Pringles container, but that kind of shape. Cover it with red construction paper, or silver with fire symbols on it.
