We warmly invite you to join us for an epic Bonfire Group Date with fire, s’mores, games, and more!” Your friends and family will be so excited to be apart of such a wonderful evening. But, just you wait. The invite is not all that comes with this fun group date (which could also be used for a bonfire block party!) This epically fun bonfire night has so much more to offer!
How to Start a Fire
In order to know how to start a bonfire, we created the picture-perfect ‘How To – Let’s Get Lit!’ instruction printable. It basically has everything you need to know for how to build a fire! To start, you will need matches, a lighter, heat, oxygen, and fuel. As you follow along with the “how to start a bonfire” instructions, you will end with the best fire for you and your guests!
Bonfire Party Ideas
Here’s how to plan a bonfire night party! For starters, we have already covered the invites and how to start a fire. Now it’s time to roast marshmallows and party s’more! Because who doesn’t want a s’mores bar around the fire?! Wahoo! Take it up a notch and order some awesome marshmallow roasting sticks! Also, feel free to ask the group to bring some delicious goodies! You can always add hot chocolate, hot apple cider, or a variety of treats to add more to this fun night (which, if you remember, could even be done as a bonfire block party!) If you would like to add food too, here are a ton of awesome Fire Party Food Ideas!
As you download and print the free S’ mores Menu, you will be able to use it as a grocery list as well! Once you have your supplies prepped for your bonfire night, sit back, relax, and get ready for your guests to arrive! And trust me, the variety of s’mores in this menu are so delicious, everyone will be drooling over them and wanting s’ more! 😉
There are so many bonfire party ideas out there, but none that we thought was just perfect. So, we came up with our own! It’s called “Wink Around the Fire.” Here’s how to play! Pass around the fire the “WINK” or “DON’T BLINK” cards. If you’re lucky, you will get the “WINK” card. Now, this makes you the secret “killer.” When the game begins, everyone will look at each other until the secret killer WINKS at someone. If someone winks at you, you must yell “BURNED.” You will then be out for the rest of the round. The goal for anyone receiving a “DON’T BLINK” card is to guess who the “winker” is. However, you only have 3 chances to guess it right, so guess carefully! Lastly, the goal for the “winker” is to wink at the most participants possible without getting caught. How fun is this?!
Around the Fire
There’s nothing like sitting around the fire with those you love. Take the time to learn more about each other with this fun bonfire party idea – the game “Two Truths and One Lie.” Here’s how to play if you’re throwing a bonfire block party: Think of two truths and one lie about yourself and write them down on the cute printables provided. Then, your friends and neighbors will try to guess which one is the lie! Easy, peasy! This is a great way to have some interactive fun at a bonfire night party with your friends, family, or neighbors.
