DIY Crafty S’more

Summer camp memories are full of loud cheers, splashing in the lake, and, let’s not forget…s’mores! The love of s’mores is timeless…I love making them as much today as I did when I was a kid.

My daughter and I did a fun little DIY Instagram Live last night, showing friends how to make these happy little s’mores. Check it out!

And if you LOVE camp crafts as much as we do, head over to the Project Kid shop page and take a look at Camp Wannabee…it’s a crafty summer camp that comes home to you!

Here are the materials that you need to make your s’more:

s'more craft materials

  1. Cut two cardboard squares, about 2 1/2 inches square. Cut one 2-by-2-inch cardboard square.
  2. Use a pencil to poke holes on the top of one piece of cardboard to resemble graham crackers. Draw a line down the center. (If you want to make it into a hanging ornament, poke a hole up through the center of the “graham cracker” and make a little loop.)
  3. Thread needle and knot the end. Stitch eyes and mouth onto felt (or other white fabric). To make the eyes, we made tiny asterisk shapes (*) and we did the backstitch to create the mouth.
  4. Wrap white fabric around the pom-pom (or cotton balls), and glue it in the back.
  5. Wrap brown thread or yarn around the small piece of cardboard to make the chocolate. If you don’t have brown thread or yarn, you can cover it with brown felt, or even just paint it brown.
  6. Glue the chocolate to the bottom cardboard, then the marshmallow on top, and finally the top graham cracker.
