I spotted a play campfire online and knew I had to make one for my son and the little ones I watch during the week.
My son is currently clamoring for "white and brown pretend marshmallows". I even offered that we could pretend to cook REAL marshmallows that he could eat later, but he wants play ones.
I used red corduroy with orange and yellow felt for the flames. The large flame is stuffed with stuffing and poly pellets on the bottom to make it stand and the small flame has wire armature so you can shape it.
I used some scrap wood for around the flames but I'd like to collect some sticks on our nature walks to use instead.
We have a play tent so I envision lots of pretend camping this summer.
