Last summer we put in a small fire pit area in our backyard. We love using it and almost every time we have a fire going we make S’mores. As I added the ingredients to my recent grocery list, inspiration struck and this easy S’mores craft for kids was born!
S’mores Writing Craft for Kids
- brown paper lunch sack
- dark brown construction paper
- brown marker
- stick glue
- Fold a brown paper lunch sack in half. Draw a line down the middle of the front with a brown marker. Make brown dots on each side of the line to resemble a graham cracker.
- Print the chocolate template on dark brown construction paper. Cut it out and glue it on top of the open paper bag.
- Print the marshmallow writing templates and cut out. Write the steps for how to make S’mores on them.
- Put the marshmallow templates together in the correct order. Place them on top of the paper bag. Fold the paper bag over the marshmallow templates.
- Staple down the left-hand side of the paper bag to complete the book.
Use these books as a fun writing activity this summer, or include them in your camping unit. They turn out adorable and are so easy to make. I love having students make books they can take home to read to their family.
