Nothing says summer like roasting marshmallows over a campfire! So to celebrate the last day of school, I brought the (Kid Safe) camp fire to to the classroom! The kids had fun roasting marshmallows over the fake camp fire and then they enjoyed S'mores and had a watermelon seed spitting contest! Yes, there are still watermelons with seeds in this world! Whodathought?
Check out my easy "How To" for the Kid-Safe Camp Fire, so you can build your own!
What You'll Need:
• (2) Paper Towel Rolls
• (1) Paint Stick
• Download the Flames and Logs Templates
• Craft paper (or a small brown paper bag)
• Scissors or Exacto Knife
• Double-stick Tape or Glue
STEP 1: Cut the Paint Stick in half. (You can toss the other half.)
STEP 2: Download and cut out the Flames template I provided and adhere them to both sides of the paint stick leaving a 2" tip.
STEP 3: Wrap the Paper Towel rolls with the Log template and trim the edges as necessary. Adhere with glue or double-stick tape. Cut a rectangle in the middle of one so that the other PT roll fits snuggly inside. Then cut a small slit in the second PT roll. Crumple up some craft paper and stuff it in each end of the logs.
Put it together and viola! A Kid Safe Camp Fire!
AND HELLOOOOOOO SUMMER!
