How to Build a Campfire

With the weather warming up, thoughts turn to camping.  Kiki must be mentally prepping because she asked me how do you build a campfire.   We looked it up and built one in the backyard.  The girls actually did most of the work and it was so well built that it was still standing almost a week later.

In case you want to build one in your backyard, here is what we did:  first clear out a spot where it will be and then ring it in with rocks.  Add your kindling in the middle.  We used pine needles and small sticks.  Over your kindling build a teepee with medium sized sticks.  Around that build a “log cabin” of larger sticks.
