S'More Family Time, Part 1!!

Last night, we may have discovered our new favorite family tradition! 
I made up these kits to give as gifts.
We had so much fun roasting our marshmallows and creating s'mores!!  

Here's a close-up of everything in our s'more kit:
A can of sterno.  I bought mine from amazon and made the labels in Photoshop.

Fondue sticks.  Also from amazon.

 Graham Crackers!


 and of course, Chocolate!!

Find a cute, little box or decorate a shoe box and you're ready to roast!

We explained everything to Maddie,

and then we got to roasting!
Maddie saw the flame and signed "hot, hot, hot!" We didn't have to worry about her getting too close.   

I got all of the fixings ready, while Kyle roasted the marshmallows.  

Maddie couldn't wait for marshmallows.  

 She had a deconstructed s'more.  


 It's definitely Mommy-approved!

Kyle preferred the marshmallows... 

Maddie preferred the chocolate!

Make a S'More kit and enjoy some great family time!!  
Stay tuned...tomorrow I'll share about our camp out under the Christmas tree!!
