Fire, popcorn and marshmallows on a cold, but happy day!

A super exciting morning for Cedars! And a perfect chilly day to warm up around the fire…

After helping to sort the wood into piles, from thin tinder, to kindling then to gradually increasing thicknesses of sticks, Cedars talked about the 3 elements a fire needs-heat, oxygen and fuel. They all took turns to help add the sticks, until we had a lovely warm fire to warm ourselves around.

p1140922p1140925While we waited for the fire to die down a little, Jamie and Tyrese used the fire striker to independently light the kelly-kettle. We waited for the water to boil, then made some warming hot chocolate…it tasted so much better freshly made!

Once we had some lovely hot embers, we toasted marshmallows until they were sticky and warm, then squashed them between two biscuits…yummy!

    I liked all the same things as you did Cedars! It was a really fun morning. And you were all brilliant at following the fire circle rules. We’ll definitely have another fire soon.

    And Jayden-your clay runes (and everyone else’s) are ready for you to take home tomorrow. See you in the morning
