Now that we have comfy, new cushions on the benches by our fire pit, we're just about ready to start toasting some marshmallows and making s'mores. Yummy!

You don't have to be a boy scout to start a campfire. A friend of mine told me about a nifty way to start a fire using dryer lint and a toilet paper tube. This project is far from glamorous, but it is an incredibly effective way to get your campfire started.

Materials


  • toilet paper tubes
  • newspaper
  • dryer lint


Directions


Don't laugh, but this time of year I have a two little bags in the laundry room. One is filled with toilet paper tubes and the other, dryer lint. I like to make a bunch of these so they are ready to go whenever we're in the mood to relax by the fire pit.

It's just that easy! Grab your graham crackers, Hershey bars, and marshmallows. All you need to do is place two or three of your fire starters under your logs and  light them up. Your family will be enjoying the warm glow and tasty treats before you know it!
