Imagination Warms the Body and Soul

This kid safe fire ring that I created from cardboard, paint, and an electric (pretend) flaming black Halloween caldron is a favorite at the grandkids camp out each year. (The grandkids camp out is an overnight camp out I do each year in April.) The children are allowed to build and rebuild the cardboard logs.  Although the fire ring puts out no heat the children sit by it to warm up after the sun goes down.  Just before bedtime we sit around the fire and sing camp fire songs. Two of the cousins woke up to a chilly morning  and left the warmth of their sleeping bags in the tent to go sit by the camp fire.
