MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!

MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Campfire craft

Here is a very cute craft that lets you bring the campfire INSIDE. All you need to do this craft are:
  • a CD (if you don't have any you want to recycle you can pick up a 3 pack for $1 at Dollar Tree)
  • Tissue paper (also available for $1 at Dollar Tree)
  • Sticks
  • Rocks
  • Dirt
  • Glue
Cover your CD with glue and press on some dirt. Next glue your rocks around the edge to form the campfire ring. We used tacky glue for the dirt and a hot glue gun for the rocks because the Fun Tester does not have the patience to let things dry and come back to it.

Once your rock ring is ready, it is time to build up your sticks for your fire......... Again Mr Fun Tester just could not wait for glue to dry so we used the hot glue.

Last you need to rip off pieces of red and yellow (orange if you have it) tissue paper and slightly rumple it and just stick it in between the stick. We used no glue on this part as glue makes tissue paper icky fast.

Simple, fun, and great for livingroom campouts!
