I’m re-posting this tutorial I wrote previously on how to make homemade firestarters because camping season is HERE again! (Check out some good tent deals here)
This weekend I took my 4 boys out for our first ever family camping trip. It was all I could’ve hoped for – they were thrilled to cook hotdogs over the campfire, make S’mores, tell silly ghost stories, and listen to old John Denver songs on the guitar.(Well – maybe not so thrilled about the last one ) We swam in the lake until we were exhausted, and finally cuddled up in our tiny 4 person tent together while I lay awake hoping no critters would come looking for leftovers.
It was wonderful – memories they’ll have forever – just like I do from when I went camping as a kid with my parents. There was one thing, though, that I wished I had remembered to bring along – something to make the all-important campfire even easier to get going: these HomeMade FireStarters.
