Collect dry wood in different sizes from as big as an A4 paper and as small as a toothpick.

Step 3: - Building a Base

Use small sticks first and gradually move to the bigger ones to build a tipi as the base of your campfire. put a circle of stones on the outside of the tipi to prevent the fire from spreading. when building your fire make sure your build it in a safe place so that nothing els will catch fire. if you have it at hand then you could trow in some paper which is a great fire starter.

Use a match to light the leaves and the small sticks on at the base of the fire. if you have a small match try to trow the match as far inside of the tipi as possible.
