Submitted for your approval by The Midnight Society — an Are You Afraid Of The Dark? inspired campfire craft.
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? was one of my favorite shows when I was younger. So of course when I found out they were doing a reboot, I was thrilled to share this show with my daughters. No surprise that they absolutely loved it — even my youngest who is a little sensitive and scares easily.
We thought a fun way to celebrate the release of the new DVD would be to crate our own campfire craft! This way we could be just like The Midnight Society, but in the comfort of our own home. You will likely have all of these items in your house already! So get ready to gather around the campfire, roast marshmallows, and tell spooky stories!
What You Need
- 3 empty toilet paper rolls
- 2 empty paper towel rolls
- medium cardboard box
- campfire template
- coloring pencils or crayons
- tape or glue stick
- thin black marker
- brown paint
- scissors (adult super vision required)
Campfire Craft Directions
This fake campfire may look daunting, but it is actually really easy (and fun!) to make. The best part is that it can be broken down and stored so you can use it again and again! Here are the simple steps to making your own campfire craft, inspired by Are You Afraid Of The Dark?
STEP ONE: Cut a small slit in the top of one of the paper towel rolls — about an inch long.
STEP TWO: Paint the paper towel and toilet paper rolls with brown paint. Let them dry.
STEP THREE: While they are drying, print out the campfire template and color it in with crayons or colored pencils.
STEP FOUR: Cut carefully along the edges of the campfire and glue or tape it to a side of your cardboard box.
STEP FIVE: Cut carefully around the edges again, making the fire nice and sturdy.
STEP SIX: Once the “logs” are dry, use the thin black marker to create grain lines on them.
STEP SEVEN: Arrange the empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls to look like campfire logs.
STEP EIGHT: Place your fire inside the campfire log with the slit to finish off your campfire!
Now all you need is some marshmallows and sticks and you can make your own s’mores. Of course you can’t really roast the marshmallows over this fire but it will be fun to pretend!
