This Summertime Campfire Caddy is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Wet-Nap but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #showusyourmess http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
I get teased by many of my “city” friends for living in such a rural area. I’m not sure what they envision– maybe naked kids running around the yard and climbing on refrigerators that we use as outdoor furniture. This is actually far from true. Surrounded by acres of land, the only thing naked around here is the landscape. Night time during the summer at our home means twinkling stars and campfires. Visitors won’t find a store-bought fire pit. We frequent a campfire so often that it’s a permanent fixture in our landscape. Huge handpicked stones create the perfect place for late night fires and, the all-American classic, s’mores treats. We make s’mores over a fire so often during the summer that I have a wooden caddy that I keep by the door specifically for s’mores by the fire. I call it my Summertime Campfire Caddy.
I keep the essentials on my Campfire Caddy, but every family can customize theirs to whatever fits their families’ tastes. Sometimes I throw a bowl of butterscotch chips on the tray just to mix it up a bit. Of course, the basic must-have list for a Campfire Caddy is as follows:
- Graham crackers
- Large marshmallows– Yes, there are huge marshmallows! Even the clerk at the store where I bought them was blown away.Large marshmallows are perfect for s’mores!
- Chocolate bars
- Wet-Nap canister
I keep a Wet-Nap canister on my caddy because, let’s face it, the sticky residue from melted marshmallows lasts longer than the campfire. I have a girly girl who likes making s’mores but who also promptly wants the tell-tale traces gone from her hands and mouth. I used to take rolls of paper towels or a box of baby wipes outside to clean up the mess. Scrubbing s’mores off of a howling kid’s mouth with a paper towel is no fun. But I discovered that Wet-Naps clean up the sticky mess from her hands and mouth with only one wipe! My daughter is definitely glad that she can enjoy her s’mores now with a shorter clean up time.
I buy my Wet-Nap products at Walmart because I can find them super cheap there– and this .55 cents off coupon while supplies last makes the price even better!
Our campfire is out by her playset. So the adults get to enjoy the fire and grown-up talk while the kids eat s’mores and play. A fun campfire is an easy and inexpensive way to connect with friends and family during the summer time. Do you enjoy s’mores and campfires? What else would you throw on your Campfire Caddy?
