One of the important rules of fire safety is to always cook with an adult around. While sharing an afternoon of cooking, keep surfaces protected with the Safety Hot Pad. This craft is great for children of all ages and is sure to be a hit with mom as well! Once complete, you will have a handy place to put that hot pot of soup or just-baked cookies!

What you'll need:

  • Two large pieces of felt (8 inches by 11 1/2 inches)
  • Old magazine
  • Small scraps of felt
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
How to make your safety hot pad craft:
  1. Lay the magazine on top of one of the pieces of felt. Place glue along the edges of the felt and place the other piece of felt on top so that the magazine is sandwiched in between. Press down and allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  2. Cut small decorations from the scraps of felt. You may want to cut out a fire truck or flames to remind you to be safe in the kitchen when you are near fire. Glue the shapes to one side of the hot pad. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  3. Your hot pad is now ready for use. Use it to set those hot dishes on and to protect your table from getting burned. Remember to always cook with an adult!
