Popcorn is a nice easy and healthy snack to cook over the fire pit with your little ones. Once the fire has died down and you have some nice hot embers, you can hold the corn kernels over the fire and watch them all pop.
Our Forest School leader has a great idea for containing everything, She uses 2 sieves that are positioned together to make an enclosed bowl. They are held together with string and tin foil over the top to protect it. All this is tied to a long stick.
