Create the logs by gluing the circular ends of the logs to the curved ends of the logs.

Next, arrange the logs in the way you’d like. We did the traditional look with the middle log straight down and the other logs at an angle outward.

Once you get the logs in a position you like, glue them together.

Trace your child’s hand onto each of the yellow, orange and red papers one time. Cut the handprints out.

Arrange the handprints on top of the logs, with the fingers pointing up. Glue the handprints to the logs and the top handprint flame to the other handprints.

That’s all there is to this cute kid’s craft!

If you’re doing this at a summer camp, after you get back from a family camping trip, or a day camp, you can use a marker to write the date and a fun message on the handprint flames.
