DLTK's Crafts for Kids
CD Rom or Margarine Lid Campfire Craft
© by Leanne Guenther
The margarine lid version of this craft is slightly easier than the cd rom version, but both turn out to make a cute campfire that kids can display.
Our favorite part of the craft is walking around outside collecting the twigs and pebbles.
Check out the TP Roll campfire craft for a different option.
- old CD rom or margarine container lid
- small rocks
- small sticks
- yellow, red and/or orange tissue paper
- glue (white school glue not a glue stick)
- Collect some twigs and pebbles (you can do this during a nature walk).
- If using a CD Rom, make sure you ask mom or dad if it is ok. You don't want to accidentally build your campfire on dad's old tunes!
- Pour a good amount of glue into
the margarine container lid (the lip of the lid will keep the glue from running out.
- If using a CD Rom, you need to be a bit more careful applying glue to each rock but still use lots.
- Arrange the rocks in a circle all around the outside of the lid.
- Scrunch a bit of tissue paper around
the end of a pencil and place it in the center of the lid.
- Lift the pencil out - this should leave a little "flame" of tissue paper on your lid.
- Repeat until the center of the lid is full of flames.
- Put a little glue on each of the
twigs and lay them around the tissue paper in a pyramid shape like you would laying out a fire.
