Indoor Campfire

After experiencing record breaking heat in Los Angeles a few days ago, our weather suddenly turned chilly & wet. So, naturally, my son thought it would be a great idea to set up camp in our backyard… while it was raining… Full blown tent, BBQ and sleepover-in-the-backyard kind of camping.

This was a great idea except for having to set up in the rain, so we compromised. I told him we could make a campsite in our living room with an indoor campfire.

– 1 paper grocery bag
– Scissors
– Red tempera paint
– A few large sticks

campfire 1
1. Make 6 vertical cuts into the bag

2. Twist the sections into points to make “flames”

3. Squish the bottom of the bag together & manipulate the flames until you’re happy with the look of your fire.

4. Give your sculpture a rough coat of red paint.

5. Lay down your sticks & place the flames on top. We used our painting tarp underneath the sticks so we could see the fire better.

6. We made veggie dogs (on Batman plates) & lemonade for dinner, baked a cake for dessert, ate by our cozy fire & read our bedtime books in the tent. We really enjoyed our first rainy day of the season!
