The kids and I made camp forks last night. I had bought a wooden dowel for $1.19 and we each took turns sawing it into 5 inch pieces. Then we drilled a hole in one end and sanded the rough edges. Then we took an uncoated hanger and cut it into pieces long enough to roast a hot dog or marshmallow. Then we got glued it into the hole. 

They turned out great and the kids loved using the saw, drill, sand block and hot glue gun. 

They still have to paint their handles but we cannot wait to test them out on a campfire. 

I also made s solar hot dog cooker out of a Pringles can. We set it outside for two hours while we finished up school work. It worked!  I still prefer a campfire hot dog but it did work.
