Fire Days in Big Kindy

19 June 2023

Every winter, Big Kindy cook their bread for Bread Day on the fire. Preparing for the fire is a big process that begins several weeks prior: first, we hunt out the straightest doughie sticks we can find, next we break them to size and sand the ends smooth, then we saw the big logs and collect lots of kindling. When all this is done, we are ready to build the fire. 

The fire pit gets rolled out from storage and everyone helps build the perfect fire with scrunched newspaper, kindling, and then logs carefully piled in. Next comes the cooking - lots of patience is needed here, along with steady hands to prevent burnt bread! And finally, the best part - eating our bread and honey with Kindy friends.
