Remember last year when I posted about Ethan eating his first s’more? It was love at first bite, and to be honest, I don’t know many kids that don’t like s’mores! So this year while camping in Kings Canyon, I thought it would be cool to have the girls try their first s’mores there.
Once we explained to the girls what s’mores are and how we make them, they could hardly contain their excitement!
They were most excited about the Hershey’s chocolate and I’m pretty sure we could’ve busted that out all by itself and they would have been perfectly content.
But I wanted to capture them getting their first bites of an ooey-gooey marshmallow melting into that Hershey’s chocolate, all sandwiched between graham crackers. Because there really isn’t anything better, is there?
Since most of the kids camping were way too little to be wielding sticks around and into the fire all at the same time, so to avoid any accidents we got my niece Nikki to help the kids make their marshmallows. A debate ensued over which is better: burnt or lightly toasted. I say burnt all the way.
The s’mores were constructed, and it was time for the girls’ first bites. And what better way to experience your first s’more than around a campfire, right? So I thought I’d catch the experience on video. The lighting is really bad, but you’ll get the idea. Here’s the girls taking their first s’mores bite.
And while in one of those big warehouse stores recently, I found this beauty:
Seems perfect if you are feeding the masses like we were. We do have a fire pit in our backyard…I might just have to bust this kit out as an occasional treat when the kids have been really good. Because let’s face it, for as fun and yummy as s’mores are, they sure are messy!
