Magazine and Tissue Paper Campfire

If you have a tent set-up indoors, here is an easy campfire to add to your "campsite".

1)  Roll pages from a magazine (or use construction paper).  Tape together.  Paper towel rolls would also work, but I wanted to give the girls the opportunity to practice rolling and taping (using those fine motor skills!).

2)  Place the rolled-up magazines on top of each other for logs.  We stood a few toilet paper tubes among the logs.  I taped the magazines and toilet paper rolls to the ground to be a little sturdier.

3)  Stuff with tissue paper for flames.  We used some blocks to circle the fire.  You could also add a flashlight in the middle of the logs to give it a glow!

It's a great time to talk about being safe around a campfire.  We also had fun singing songs and telling stories around the campfire!

Another "amazing" idea! We will have to try this one.
