Cool campfire idea and a ‘Summer Bucket List’ free printable

I don’t know about you but, after this year’s brutal winter, I am welcoming summertime with open arms! Today I thought I’d share with you two cool summertime ideas that will help your family grow closer this season.

The first is how to build a campfire using only one log and some lighter fluid. It is a cool idea I came across in Cabin Life magazine. Below is a quick video tutorial I put together a few summers ago on how to do this.

Using this method, our campfire burns for more than three hours. It’s also a great conversation piece for our guests and a good way for us to use up a large log we would have otherwise needed to split before burning.

The second idea is the Summer Bucket List. Our family has turned this into an annual tradition. It’s so much fun to see what the kids dream up for us to do each year. At the end of summer, we typically get most or all of our list checked off! Below you’ll find a free, printable Summer Bucket List you can use for your own family adventures.
