Project

S'mores To-Go Box

Roughing it isn't as rough when you bring along a basket filled with s'mores ingredients.

Created By: Johnny Miller/Brown Bird Design

Introduction

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.

Materials

  • 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

Steps

  1. Step 1

    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.

  2. Step 2

    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.

    You can get the "square" marshmallows at Target. I haven't seen them anywhere else (yet). Check online for a coupon for them since they're kind of new... =)

    I find it is useful to have a bag of wet wipes in my S'more Basket. There are always sticky hands and wet wipes work best for the clean up.
