Camping added 8-12-00 Original Author Unknown

Make a campfire out of paper towel rolls to look like logs, then cut flame shapes out of a piece of oak tag and put it into the logs. Put this in the middle of the room. Then with the sticks you find on a nature walk, put marshmallows on them and pretended to roast marshmallows around the campfire. Add a few songs to complete the experience.
