Campfire Fun by Trisha Roberts

Campfire Fun

by Trisha Roberts

Fall has arrived!  As the days grow shorter and the nights grow cooler, evening campfires have even greater appeal.  Whether you have the privilege of heading to a State Park or Recreation facility or whether you have a fire ring in your backyard, times around the campfire make great memories. Here are some classic tips for Family Campfire Fun.

Some classic campfire foods:  S’Mores, Foil Dinners, Hot Dogs, foil-wrapped baked potatoes, corn-on-the-cob baked in water-soaked husks, or melted campfire sandwiches (prepare ahead, wrap in foil, and throw in the coals to heat).

Story Telling after dark

Start with a sentence, then let each person adds on to the story.  See where it goes!  You might try, “I once knew an old man that lived in the woods.  He had a big dog, a wooden leg, and a beard that was so long it touched the ground!” or, “There was a flea that lived in a tree whose best friend was a bee.” 

Have each person take turns telling about a favorite memory from the past summer.

Be very quiet and listen to the sounds in the woods.  Let each person name a sound they hear and make up a story about it.  For instance, if you hear a cricket chirping, the story could be about a family of crickets getting ready for bed.  If you hear the wind rustling the leaves on the trees, you might make up a story about the leaves preparing for an adventure.
