Campfire Craft

As we enter August, we will soon be welcoming cooler weather in Ohio. The end of August and the beginning of September are our favorite times to enjoy a campfire in our yard. Our toddler has not yet got to enjoy a campfire, but this should be her summer to get to do so. We thought this cute little campfire craft would be perfect for this time of year.

Materials Needed

  • White paper
  • Brown construction paper
  • Yellow Paint
  • Red Paint
  • Orange Paint
  • Paint brushes (Optional, if your little one can not hold a paint brush, just let them dive in with their hands)
  • Scissors
  • Glue




Start by cutting the brown construction paper into little strips. If your child is over 3, try letting them do it themselves!


Next, let your little one glue the pieces of paper onto the white paper. We used liquid glue and put it all towards the bottom of the paper so it would form a pile, but the older your child is, the less guidance they will need.


After your “sticks” are glued down, its time to paint the “fire”. We did one color at a time with the paint brush but you can figure out what will work best for the child you are working with.


The end result was super cute and took under 20 minutes to complete from start to finish!
