Cub Scouts - Edible Campfire

I found this online and thought it was so cute to use at Pack Meeting this month. The theme for June is "A Camping We Will Go."
1 coffee filter (fire clearing)
1 small paper cup of water (bucket to put out fire)
Miniature marshmallows (to make fire circle)
Shredded coconut (tinder get the fire started)
Red Licorice (kindling - to keep the fire growing)
Tootsie Rolls (fuel - big logs)

As the Cubs build their own "campfire", talk about why each
ingredient is important. After the "fire" is built, enjoy eating
this special treat.
