Fun Fire Pit Activity: Color Changing Flames

With more and more people trying to find ways to spend time outdoors during these crazy COVID times we know a lot of people have been gathering with close friends around a fire pit.  We did the same over Thanksgiving Break and took it to the next level!  

My soccer mom friends and I always share fun products, gift ideas, etc. and one day someone brought up color changing flames!  I was so intrigued and it sounded not only like something fun to see, but also a fun outdoor activity for the kids.  

These ColorGlo Flame Crystals can be used to change the color of your flames to a pretty blue and purple.  You could just toss some of them in the fire, but the effects would only be brief.  To make the color last a bit longer, you can coat pinecones with the crystals and let the kids toss them in the fire.  It only takes a few items and it's fun for everyone!  

Step 1: Have kids collect pinecones. 

Step 2: Spray pinecones with adhesive spray

Step 3: Shake pinecones in a paper bag with the flame crystals until coated. 

Step 4: Lay pinecones out to dry. 

Step 5: Toss coated pinecones in the fire and watch the beautiful result! 

We loved seeing the colorful flames in our fire and got a kick out of how pretty they were.  It was certainly a fun activity for the kids (and us moms, too!) so if you are looking for something different to do over the upcoming holiday break, this would be a fun one!
