IT CAN be hard to tell the days apart during lockdown – particularly if you’re a family cooped up inside with no school or play dates to attend.
However, one mum gave her kids a fun evening to remember by creating an incredible campfire movie night for them in the living room.
In a post on Facebook group ‘Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK’, the clever parent revealed how she had made a tent and fire as a cosy backdrop for her children to enjoy a film.
The woman, called Carla, shared snaps of the cool space – which also included marshmallows to toast, and treats with a sign warning they shouldn’t be fed to the bears.
Captioning the images, she wrote: “Campfire movie night idea!”
The mum went on to explain how she made a realistic-looking DIY fire as the centrepiece.
Carla continued: “To create the fire you will see in the end video I used card board to create a circle around a bowl.
“Then I made flames out of card board and tissue paper and glue them together. I used LED lights placed in the centre of the bowl.
“For around the fire I collected stones and sticks!”
Her post went down well with fellow members who left more than 2,900 ‘likes’.
One wrote: “Well done this is wonderful.”
Another commented: “Brilliant.”
A third shared: “Love this.”
And a fourth added: “Omg this is insane!!”
