A Tent and Campfire Fun Food Idea for Kids

A Tent and Campfire Fun Food Idea for Kids - Perfect No Bake simple treat for camping, summer fun, boy scouts or girl scouts! www.kidfriendlythingstodo.com

Years ago, when I started this blog, I had some fun ideas. I went crazy creating and taking pictures. The only problem was…my photography stunk! I knew nothing about lighting or setting. Connor, whose nickname is sometimes “Wreck it Ralph”, broke the focus off of my camera. We couldn’t afford a new one, so I went around holding the focus onto the camera hoping my pictures would come out alright.  I proudly displayed my horrendous pictures to the world and wondered why I only got 10 visitors a day. 

This tent and campfire fun food idea was hatched back in the days of ignorant photo taking bliss. My son was in Boy Scouts and I thought up a tent and campfire cupcake idea. It’s a fun and cute treat, so I thought I would revive it by making it again – except this time, a lot easier – and take pictures with a camera that I protect from Connor with my life! Here’s my updated version of the Tent and Campfire Fun Food Idea for Kids. Come on in:

  • The first project you’ll want to tackle is the tent assembly 
  • It’s pretty simple, take 2 Popsicle sticks and cross them like an X – Make sure that the top portion of your X is narrow and the bottom is wide – Use a dab of glue to secure them
  • Repeat using the first X Popsicle as your template, so they match
  • Now, grab your paper plate and glut the bottom of your tent frames to the plate

  • Grab your 5th Popsicle stick and fold one half of the fruit roll up over the stick, turn it around and fold the other half of the fruit roll up 
  • Place your fruit roll up/Popsicle stick on the top of your tent frame and pull the fruit roll up around the sides of the tent – pressing down to secure

  • Now plop a cookie down in front of your tent
  • Grab your orange fruit roll up and cut a short square out of it (about an inch tall), make flame like cuts out of the top of your square
  • Place your fire (orange roll up) in between the 2 tootsie rolls and set it on top of the cookie
  • Finally grab a mini marshmallow and push it onto the pretzel stick 
  • Place that somewhere around the fire and You are Done My Friend!

Oh! I almost forgot! Here’s a look at my old post. As you can see, I changed it up a bit. I kept it super simple this time, because that’s my just how we roll these days! I do like the fruit roll up sleeping bag inside the tent. That wouldn’t be too complicated and would be super cute! Maybe next time. 🙂
