The campfire is lots of things: stove, dryer, story circle, match-lighting and whittling studio, science lab, heater, living history place… But maybe none so rich as the culinary kitchen.
With a loose definition of “whatever yummy thing you can melt between two graham crackers, generally using roasted marshmallows as a binder” we have a lot of variety around our campfire. It is an investment to allow for that sort of experimentation. But the whole process is fabulous for everyone.
You’ve done the important work of teaching about fire safety. You’ve done the awesome work of making a memory. You’ve done the fun work of sharing a sugary, messy snack right before bedtime. Well done.
