The last time we had a bon fire it was huge! As there was about 10 kids there ranging from 3 years old to 12 years old we attached glo sticks to them all and we attached it to the 6 dogs as well. It was pitch black but we could still keep an eye on where the children and dogs were while all of us adults clustered around the bonfire (well as close as we could get). It was a wonderful night enjoyed by all and even some of the adults put on glow sticks too! All you could see was the huge bonfire and lots of little glo sticks wandering around the paddocks in the pitch black night.
