Leafy campfire activity

Tell stories around a roaring fire - made from leaves!

In autumn, there are lots of flame-coloured leaves around. Get collecting, then build your own leafy campfire.

  • Arrange some conkers or stones in a circle.
  • Stack some sticks in a teepee shape.
  • Cover the sticks with the brightest leaves you can find, so they look like a flickering fire.

Real fires in woods can be dangerous. This is a safe alternative that's great fun to make!
