Gathering around the fire at night, and of course, roasting marshmallows for s’mores! There’s nothing better than that!

Because of that, we created this paper campfire craft so your kids can recall those fun memories all year long.

Take the rocks and glue them around the front, bottom of the flame. We alternated gray and dark gray rocks to make it stand out more. Glue 4 rocks in the front, bottom of the flame. Take 2 rocks and glue them to the back of the flame to make it look as though the rocks are circling around the fire.
