Fire pits have become one of the must-have backyard accessories in the last few years and it’s not hard to see why. Sitting around the warmth of a fire during the spring, summer, and autumn months can be really relaxing and provide many memories for you and your friends and family! Every experience around the fire pit is unique! If you’re looking for inspiration for fun activities to do with your friends and family around your fire pit this spring, check out these three!

1. Telling Stories and Sharing Memories

Whether you’re gathering with your family or your friends, a fire pit seems to be the best place to share stories and memories! Younger adults love gathering around the fire with a few drinks to share stories from their younger years. And children love telling spooky ghost stories to scare each other silly!

2. Playing Word Games

Another fun activity you can do around the fire pit is play word games! The classic game Twenty Questions is perfect for kids and adults of all ages, as is Name That Tune. In fact, campfire sing-alongs as a whole are fun for the whole family, so grab that guitar and sheet music and belt out your favorites!

3. Roasting Hot Dogs and Marshmallows

Kids love cooking around the open flame! Hot dogs taste great after being cooked over the fire pit and are fairly easy for children to cook effectively. In addition, you can indulge in s’mores all season long by roasting marshmallows. You can also purchase mountain pie holders and make them as well.

Take Proper Precautions

A fire pit is a great addition to your backyard if you don’t already have one and Honeysuckle Nursery and Design can help install the perfect one for your property!
