How to Make a Campfire in Little Alchemy 2: Key Combinations

Key Points

  • Creating a campfire in Little Alchemy 2 requires a series of steps, including making energy, a puddle, a pond, a lake, and the sea.
  • The process also involves creating primordial soup, life, land, a continent, a planet, an atmosphere, a cloud, rain, soil, a plant, lava, stone, a wall, a house, metal, a blade, a sword, a plow, a field, a barn, a phoenix, an egg, a chicken, philosophy, big, a tree, wood, and finally, the campfire.

The game can be downloaded and played on iOS devices through the Apple App Store, Android devices through the Google Play Store, and on PCs through the browser of your choice. The game offers over 700 unique elements to discover, some of which can be very complicated and confusing to make. You can play Little Alchemy 2 here!

This article is going to go in-depth on how to create a campfire in Little Alchemy 2. The process of creating campfires can be a little confusing and may require a lot of trial and error, but the benefits of doing so are nothing to scoff at. Once you know how to make a campfire, many new possibilities will open up for you, including the ability to create bacon and dogs! Who doesn’t love those?

The Best Method to Make a Campfire in Little Alchemy 2

For the sake of this guide, we assume that you are brand new and have nothing already unlocked. This is to ensure that this guide can be useful for everyone, but we will provide alternative methods later on for those further in the game!

Step 1: Make Energy

The first step to making a campfire is to make energy, and this can be done with the base 4 elements in the game. Simply combine fire with fire to create energy, the universal motivator.

Energy in Little Alchemy 2.
Energy is made by combining two fire elements.

Step 2: Make a Puddle

Next up on the list is to make a puddle! In order to make what the game refers to as nature’s kiddie pool, you should combine water with water.

Puddle in Little Alchemy 2.
A puddle can be made by combining water with water.

Step 3: Create a Pond

This next step is very easy and involves the puddle you just made. Simply combine that puddle with either another puddle or with water and it will form a pond (“a really small lake”).

Pond in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining a puddle with water elements will create a pond.

Step 4: Create a Lake

Once again, combine the pond you just created with another water element in order to create a lake. Naturally, the game refers to this as just “a big pond.”

Lake in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining a pond with water elements will create a lake.

Step 5: Make the Sea

Naturally, keep adding more water to a lake and theoretically it would become a sea, so that is what we’re going to do. Combine water with your existing lake and welcome the sea, which the game reminds us is not an ocean.

Sea in Little Alchemy 2.
Add more water to a lake in order to create a sea.

Step 6: Create Primordial Soup

Don’t worry, we are finally done adding water for now. Next, you’re going to want to add the earth element to your sea, which will create a primordial soup. The primordial soup element is a very important element that is used for many recipes in Little Alchemy 2.

Primordial Soup in Little Alchemy 2.
Adding earth elements to the sea will create a primordial soup.

Step 7: Create Life

Life will always find a way, particularly with your help. In order to create life, you want to merge the primordial soup you just made with the energy that you made in the first step of this process.

Make Life Little Alchemy 2
Energy and primordial soup make life.

Step 8: Create Land

Leaving the life we just created behind for a little bit, you’re going to want to mix two earth elements to create land. Aren’t you happy it isn’t water?

Land in Little Alchemy 2.
Mixing two earth elements will create land.

Step 9: Create a Continent

You likely already know where this is going. Just like the water elements we previously created, this time we’re gonna stack some earth elements. Add earth to your land and you will create a continent.

Continent in Little Alchemy 2.
Adding earth elements to land will create a continent.

Step 10: Create a Planet

The next step is to create an entirely new planet, which can be done by merging two continents together. Note that unlike the water elements before, adding simply another earth element here will not work.

Planet in Little Alchemy 2.
Merging two continents will create a planet, a star dancer.

Step 11: Create an Atmosphere

Now that we have a planet, it is time to make an atmosphere. You should go ahead and mix the existing planet with air in order to create this atmosphere.

Atmosphere.
Creating an atmosphere is as easy as adding air to a planet. Who knew?

Step 12: Create a Cloud

In order to create a cloud, you are going to need to mix that atmosphere you just made with some water.

Cloud.
Atmosphere + Water = Cloud

Step 13: Create Rain

I hope you all missed adding water because we’re back to that portion of the guide. Add some water to the cloud in order to make it cry (rain).

Rain in Little Alchemy 2
Add water to clouds to make it rain.

Step 14: Make Soil

The next step of the process is to make soil, which can be made by combining life and earth elements.

Soil in Little Alchemy 2.
Add life to earth in order to make soil.

Step 15: Make a Plant

The next step requires making it rain on the soil, so you should combine the new soil element you just made with the rain element you made the step prior. Combining these two elements will create a plant, the original solar-powered organism,

Plant in Little Alchemy 2.
In order to create a plant, you should combine rain and soil.

Step 16: Create Lava

Next up, you will need some Hot-n-Ready liquefied rock, as the game calls it. In normal terms, this means that you need to create lava, which can be accomplished by mixing fire and earth elements.

Step 17: Create Stone

Finally, we are making something that actually belongs on a campfire! Any survival-oriented video game in the world will tell you that stones are required to create a campfire, and they are generally pretty easy to make, too. In Little Alchemy 2, a stone can be created by mixing your newfound lava element with the air element.

Mixing lava and air in Little Alchemy 2 will create stone!

Step 18: Create a Wall

Next up, combine the stone you just made with yet another stone, which will create a wall!

Wall.
Combining two stone elements will create a wall.

Step 19: Create a House

What is a house if not just a collection of walls? Combine that wall you just made with another wall and enjoy your wonderful new Little Alchemy 2 home!

House.
Combining two wall elements will create a house (ghosts and pets not included).

Step 20: Create Metal

In order to create metal in Little Alchemy 2, you’re going to want to combine stone and fire. As the game mentions, metal can do it all, and it is used in a lot of recipes.

Metal in Little Alchemy 2.
Mixing together stone and fire elements will create metal.

Step 21: Create a Blade

Once you have accomplished the production of metal, the next step is to turn that metal into a blade. In order to do that, simply combine the metal you just made with some stone elements.

Blade in Little Alchemy 2.
Use some stone elements to sharpen metal elements into a blade.

Step 22: Make a Sword

Add some more metal to that blade you just made and it will turn into a sword (which is, according to the game, a really long knife!).

Sword in Little Alchemy 2.
Adding metal to a blade will create a sword.

Step 23: Create a Plow

Putting the sword away for now, the next step is to create a plow. A plow can be created by mixing together metal and earth elements.

Plow in Little Alchemy 2.
A plow can be made in Little Alchemy 2 by merging together metal and earth elements.

Step 24: Plow the Field

Using the newly created plow, you’re going to want to mix it with an earth element in order to create a field. Just think of this as if you just used the plow on the earth nearby to create a field.

Field in Little Alchemy 2.
Mixing together the earth element and the plow will create a field.

Step 25: Make a Barn

The next step that you should take in the process of creating a campfire is to make a barn. The barn can be created by combining a house and a field.

Combining a field and a house will create a barn.

Step 26: Summon the Phoenix

Obviously, the next step to creating a campfire is to create a literal phoenix. This can be done by merging together the fire and life elements.

Combining fire and life elements will create a phoenix.

Step 27: Cultivate an Egg

Next on our shopping list is an egg from our newly summoned phoenix friend. In order to get an egg for our alchemy, we need to combine two phoenixes. Creating an egg will also make the phoenix disappear from your element list, as the egg is its only use in the game.

Mixing two phoenixes together will create an egg.

Step 28: Hatch a Chicken

Next up, you’re going to place the egg inside a barn in order to hatch a chicken.

Combining an egg and a barn will hatch a chicken.

Step 29: Create Philosophy

What came first, the chicken or the egg? Referencing this famous question, the next step will be to combine the chicken and the egg, which will create philosophy.

Philosophy in Little Alchemy 2
What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Step 30: Make Big

The next step is to literally create the concept of “big,” which the game calls “when small grows up.” This is done by combining philosophy and a planet. Big is a very important element that is used for many things within the game.

Big in Little Alchemy 2.
Combine a planet and philosophy to create big.

Step 31: Create a Tree

What is a tree? If you think of what a tree is in the most literal sense, it is a very big plant. As such, the idea here is to combine a plant and the newly made ‘big’ element, which will create the tree that we need.

Tree in Little Alchemy 2.
Combining the big element and the plant element in Little Alchemy 2 will result in a tree.

Step 32: Create Wood

The process is finally starting to make sense now, such as why did we create a sword? The answer is to cut down the tree for wood, which is what you need to do next. Combine the sword and the newly discovered tree in order to create wood. Wood is a very essential element in Little Alchemy 2 and it is used in the vast majority of recipes in the game.

Wood in Little Alchemy 2.
Cut down a tree with a sword in order to create wood.

Step 33: Create the Campfire

It is finally time to create the campfire! Combine the newly discovered wood with fire and enjoy your lovely new campfire.

Alternative Combos to Make a Campfire in Little Alchemy 2

There are no alternative ways to make a campfire in Little Alchemy 2 directly as it will always require the combining of fire and wood at the end. That being said, there are a few alternative ways to make it to this final step, such as using the ‘time’ and ‘pressure’ elements to skip a decent bit of the process. The process for that route is as follows.

  • Water + Water = Puddle
  • Puddle + Puddle = Pond
  • Pond + Pond = Lake
  • Lake + Lake = Sea
  • Earth + Sea = Primordial Soup
  • Primordial Soup + Time = Life
  • Earth + Life = Soil
  • Life + Soil = Plant
  • Plant + Time = Tree
  • Air + Air = Pressure
  • Earth + Pressure = Stone
  • Stone + Fire = Metal
  • Stone + Metal = Blade
  • Blade + Metal = Sword
  • Tree + Sword = Wood
  • Wood + Fire = Campfire

Time is a very difficult element to unlock in Little Alchemy 2 as it requires having already discovered 100 different elements. Due to wanting this guide to be beginner-friendly, we opted to not use that method in this guide.

What Can I Use a Campfire For?

Your newly discovered campfire element can be used to create a lot of different things, including the previously promised bacon and dogs. Check out the following table for all combinations that require a campfire.
