These tubs are cheap at the farm store – add a layer of sand in the bottom and around the outside for safety. If you wanted a lid to keep the water out you could buy a tub the same size as a metal trash can lid.
Buy a 15 gallon wash pail from Lowe's. Get four bricks, Put the bricks inside the pail. Spread them out flat, to cover the bottom of the pail, and then set your logs on top of the bricks. This allows for airflow under your logs to keep the fire going.
Camping Birthday Party Food--hot dogs, mac-n-cheese, baked potato, corn on the cob, trail mix & personalized water bottle. I really like the idea of a party with the camping theme lol. Maybe a little boys party idea also?
