Cosy get-together around the campfire
To sit around a fireplace is practically in the genes of humans. In the past, an open fire was not only meant to keep warm, but for a long time it was also the only way to see something in the dark or to protect oneself from wild animals. At the fire, exciting, adventurous and creepy stories were told, eaten, drunk and celebrated. This connection with nature and the people around us has unfortunately become less and less important in our modern world.

And it shows over and over again: The cosiness, sociability and pleasant warmth in the light of a campfire cannot be compared to a get-together on the sofa in front of the TV. With their enthusiasm for nature and a large portion of adventurousness, even children are quickly inspired by the idea of collecting firewood. At leisure camps, and of course also with the scouts, a campfire should therefore not be missing. You can learn a lot about nature while collecting firewood and you even have the opportunity to explore the area. In the evenings at the fire, both the little ones and the grown-ups enjoy a cosy chat. Add a delicious snack baked over the flames and the evening is perfect.

Stockbrot: Quickly prepared and infinitely varied
It's in every adventure and Indian story: Bread speared on a stick and baked over a fire. The children are already looking forward to this when they prepare the dough and can find a suitable stick for themselves. You can even integrate the search for the suitable stick into an exciting game: Let the children find a willow or a hazelnut tree to use its branches for the stick bread.

In any case, make sure that the sticks come from a non-toxic tree! If the children are already older, you can carve your cane yourself - under adult supervision, of course - to make it easier to skewer the dough. But you can also have the children add the ingredients for the stick bread recipe. Depending on the season and recipe variant, berries, nuts or wild garlic are available for the children to collect.

Together with the adults, they can finally prepare the dough and make sweet and savoury variations. Since the dough is basically very simple, even small children are able to help. It is also very easy to prepare larger quantities. Stick bread recipes: Something for everyone Whether sweet or savoury: stick bread is always delicious and also gives children the responsibility of looking after their own food. After all, a sure instinct and sense of time are needed to bake the dough over the campfire, but not to let it burn.
