Happy National S’Mores Day!

Today is National S’mores Day which in other words is a Girl Scout camp holiday. Our camp experiences would not be complete without roasting marshmallows over the campfire for s’mores! Back in February, we posted some recipes for s’mores. In honor of National S’mores Day, I wanted to give you a quick “how to” on creating those roasting sticks our girls all know and love making at camp! Post your creative s’mores recipes below!

Materials:

  • Wire Coat hangers
  • Wire cutters
  • pliers
  • paint stirring sticks/wooden dowels
  • duct tape (in fun colors, of course)
  • sandpaper
  • marshmallows and a campfire
