Ooey-Gooey S'more Goodness
(10 Weeks of Campfire Series Treats?)
Keep the kids coming back each week by doing a camping or campfire series...complete with yummy S'more treats that they create themselves.
All snacks are easy to create and only take a few minutes away from class time.
Teach "action lessons" from the Bible that you would expect to hear around the campfire. Lessons like Daniel in the Lions Den, David and Goliath, The Fiery Furnace and other great lessons.
Here are 10 great s'more recipes...how many more can you think of?
Allow the children to stuff as many of the above items into their cone as possible. Top with a lot of mini marshmallows. Wrap the cones in aluminum foil, write name on the foil and toss cone into the oven. Bake just long enough for everything to get ooey and gooey (300 degrees - 5-7 minutes). Peel the foil back far enough to eat.

Hershey Bar (3 Squares each)
Marshmallow (Regular Size)
Hand out 1 Graham Cracker (have the kids break it in half...or break it for them before class begins), 1 Piece of Hershey bar (3 squares), and one marshmallow, and a square of aluminum foil.
Have the children place one graham cracker on the foil, top with chocolate and marshmallow, place the second cracker on top. Wrap the entire s'more in the foil, write name on foil, pop in over...long enough for everything to melt (300 degrees 5-7 minutes.) Peel the foil back far enough to eat.
