S’mores Campfire DIY Paper Playset

 

Astrobrights S'mores DIY Playset by Kathy Beymer

Keep summertime alive with this interactive s’mores campfire paper playset! This cute paper craft project features a toasty campfire with wood-grain logs surrounded by a stone ‘safety’ ring for kids to toast pretend marshmallows until they’re golden brown. Start by building the fire, then slip marshmallows onto sticks for toasting. When the marshmallows are ready, just pop them onto paper graham crackers and add some chocolate for a yummy s’mores treat. There’s even a black charred marshmallow that accidentally got a little too close to the fire -- oops!


This whimsical playset is a fun and easy craft to make with kids and takes just a few supplies that you probably already have at home. Kids can make as many s’mores as they like with their handmade campfire, rain or shine.
