Smore Fun Classroom Treats

In the tradition of my non-traditional classroom treats, I’m sharing the smores I will be taking to my son’s class in about an hour in honor of his birthday.  Like many other schools around the nation, our school has a ban on homemade food for class parties. We could launch into a discussion about whether that is a good idea or not, but for the meantime, I seek to satisfy my need for creativity with home-ASSEMBLED goods–not baked. Last year, it was the juice box birthday robots. The kids thought those were SO cool! For my daughter’s birthday, I used donuts and twinkies to make the #10.
In keeping with his camping birthday theme, this year, I have assembled individual S’mores for the students. I designed a bag topper that reads, “Thank you for making my birthday S’MORE fun!” with my son’s signature on it.

Don’t worry! I’m sharing generic versions of the tags as printables below!

In order to serve smores with out the campfire, I bought the Kraft stackable marshmallows. It took two marshmallows to nicely cover the standard half graham cracker and half of a Hershey’s bar. I’m not too worried about the chocolate melting. We are in Phoenix. The car ride to school is about the same as a campfire anyway, right?

I’ll let you know how the kids like them, but I’m going to venture a guess that this will be a first for them as a school treat!

And here is a sneak peek at some of the other birthday insanity going on this weekend. This year, Labor Day will truly be about a time that I labored much! :-)

HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

  1. Very cool! I don't think our school would allow them still because it states they have to be "prepackaged" and I don't think this would count. :(

  2. You are insanely cool! Wish we could go camping with you :)

    Best line I've read in a long time:

    "The car ride to school is about the same as a campfire anyway, right?"

    :)

  3. Been anxious to see what you were going to come up with. LOVE IT! Never seen those marshmallows before…..AWESOMENESS!!!

  4. P.S. Guess I'm a rebel cuz I took homemade cookies to class the other day for Maddie's bday (that's what the kid wanted). Was hoping no one would call me out on it. lol.

    What an adorable idea! Do you know if kids like them without the chocolate melted? I want to use this as the classroom treat for our winter holiday party. This is the craft we plan to do: http://goo.gl/J6CTG, so I think the s’mores treat would be perfect! By the way, where can I get these new stackable marshmallows? They’re just what I need!

  15. What do you of these? I don’t know?

  16. TeamZ Leader says:

    Had the idea for a basket of s’more makings for a teacher gift and just wanted tag that said something about s’more fun this summer. I looked and looked and finally found your. It is perfect. Thank you, thank you!

    I never in a million years would’ve gotten the notion to look at things this way. This will make my life a bunch easier.
