So it’s leading up to the long weekend and it’s that beautiful time of year where it’s not too hot yet to go camping. I have plans, my story-time parents have plans and it was well and truly time to do and romping good story-time about the great outdoors anyway, since we’ve done so many other things.
A colleague did a Camping themed story-time with toddlers before and commented on how great it went, so I was pretty confident about this one. And sure enough it was so much fun! I got someone to bring a tent, I made a little faux campfire out of paper towel tubes and cardboard.

I did find an awesome campfire video on YouTube here, and showed it while the children did a craft to slow things down.
Here is the story-time and picture of the craft we did. Help yourself. This worked great!

I bought marshmallows and put them on sticks for children to pretend to roast by their fires.
