Steps for Making Solar S'mores

  • First assemble your box if you're using one that needs it.
  • Next, this is totally up to you, but I let my littles paint their ovens first. Painting, coloring, or decorating them is not necessary. Just adds a little more fun to the activity.
  • Once the paint dried I cut the flap in the top using an x-acto knife carefully.
  • Then we added the foil inside the box and onto the flap. Maggie was able to help me with this step. She's three and wants to be involved as much as possible.
  • After that comes the fun part! Assembling the s'mores to be placed inside.
  • Finally we added saran wrap across the opening to keep out any pesky bugs and set it in a sunny spot so the s'mores can start baking!
  • Don't forget to enjoy them after they have a chance to bake and melt!
