Camping Hack- Make your Marshmallow Roasting Sticks Longer!

I know camping season is pretty much over - but I feel like bonfire season is just getting started so you can still use this hack! 
We needed some roasting sticks, but all we could find were these short ones... they are line 2 feet long.  Seriously, who what to only stand 2 feet away from the fire?  Not me and not my kids.  So we came up with a way to make them longer using PVC piping!  

Here is how we did it.  
Short marshmallow roasting stick with a wood handle
2ft PVC pipe. 
 Ours were 1.5 inches thick and it was precut to 2ft at Home Depot in the plumbing section.  They were $2 per 2 ft pipe.  Measure your handle to see how thick you need your pipe. 
Screws and a Drill

1. Pre-drill the holes for screws into the pipe.  We did 2 screws for the handle about 2 inches apart.
2. Screw in the screws into the pipe and handle.  This took 2 people. one to hold the stick in place and one to drill. 
3. Add a hanger (optional) these hangers were on the original roasting sticks so we just took them off that and added it to the pipe.  
4. Enjoy roasting your marshmallow from a safe distance!

We have a hanging plant holder that we use to hang them in our back yard. 

What Camping hacks you you use?
