Edible Fire Safety Tutorial for Kids and Scouts

With the recent drought and wildfires in this country, teaching kids fire safety is even more important than ever. 

I loved this lesson we had during Girl Scout camp, which taught the girls how to safely start and put out a campfire for cooking.

Edible fire safety lesson for Scouts
What you'll need:

  • mini marshmallows and/or cheerios
  • pretzels
  • potato sticks
  • red hots, hot tamales or other candy
  • candy corn
  • cups
  • plates

  1. Pull back your hair.
  2. Create a safety circle outside your "fire circle." (Make sure the area is clear around your plate.)
  3. Fill a "water bucket" (a cup) and keep nearby.
  4. Make your fire circle ring with cheerios or mini marshmallows.
  5. Create an A-frame of "logs" with your pretzels.
  6. Make a teepee of "tinder" (potato sticks).
  7. Light with a match (red hots or hot tamales).
  8. Add your "kindling" (short pretzels or Chinese noodles).
  9. Candy corn will show it's burning brighter. (optional)
The girls loved this activity, and we were sure to plan an active activity soon after!
