Campfire Activities

happy kids telling interesting stories around campfireThere’s no better place to gather together than around a campfire. Why not cosy on up around your pretend campfire and sing some songs or tell some stories.

Campfire Songs for Kids

We searched the internet so you don’t have to, to bring you a list of traditional campfire songs for kids.

Campfire Stories for Kids
Telling silly and spooky stories around the campfire is another age old tradition.  Some stories can be a little scary for little kids. Here is a great resource from The Ultimate Camp Resource with a list of tall tales including silly, funny and scary stories, perfect for telling around a campfire.  It also has stories with a moral.
Super Cool Indoor Forts

So we’ve found you a great guide from Lifeasmama which gives you 10 awesome ideas and inspiration on how to create a cool fort.  I love the simple sheet tent over a rope or the dining table converted into a fort; such simple and fun ideas!
Park / Forest Ranger
This month we explored the role of forest rangers and the important jobs that they do, through the informational cards included in this month’s box.

We found this great tutorial on Pre-kpages.com that explains how to make a simple forest / park ranger vest from a brown paper grocery bag.  This would be a really simple prop to make to add a little dress up to the role play.
