S'mores To-Go Box
Roughing it isn't as rough when you bring along a basket filled with s'mores ingredients.
These campfire-building instructions are courtesy of the Girl Scouts of the USA.
Tips: Cut lunch bags in half, and fold down the tops to hold graham crackers and marshmallows -- and don't forget the chocolate bars.
- Tinder: pine needles, bark, and matchstick-width sticks
- Kindling: twigs, about as wide as your thumb
- Fuel: sticks larger than the width of your thumb and small logs
Arrange 3 pieces of kindling in an A shape in a cleared area. Set a handful of tinder near the A's crossbar. Light tinder from underneath; let burn until you have a healthy flame.
Add kindling, tepee-style, over tinder, waiting for each piece to catch before adding a new one. As the fire grows stronger, add fuel, 1 piece at a time, as above.
