While Trevor did sand art (one of the prizes he won in the scavenger hunt), I did a different craft. I found an adorable campfire craft at Kaboose (link is now broken) that I wanted to try. I brought along Elmer's glue, an old CD, and scraps of orange and yellow tissue paper. The rest of the materials came from our scavenger hunt.
I started by using my finger to rub an even layer of glue on the CD, stopping 1/2 inch from the edge. I dropped it upside down on the ground, which gave it a nice even coat of sand.
(The blue background is REI's Camp Time Roll-a-Table. I can't say enough good things about this table.
We use it for camping, parties, and any time we need an extra table. It is awesome.)
I used a generous amount of glue to adhere rocks around the outer edge.
I broke the sticks into small pieces and glued them in a pile.
I tore off small bits of tissue paper, added glue, and stuffed them down in between the sticks.
I put the whole thing down on the ground and sprinkled more sand on top to cover any extra glue.
Here's my finished craft! Isn't it cute?!
