S'mores Camping Tents

Winter has its gingerbread houses, and summer has its S'mores, so why not build a camping scene with S'mores flavor?

My 4 year old daughter and I celebrated the onset of summer vacation with these simple S'mores tents, a nod to cool summer nights, roasting goodies over the fire, and weather that allows for camping with friends and family.

For these treats, we simply used graham crackers, some chocolate spread with graham sticks, and marshmallow fluff. Real roasted marshmallows would be a welcome addition too, of course!

The rest of the build looked like this:

To make little flames, I cut up a baby carrot from my daughter's afternoon snack, and placed them between the chocolate-attached logs. Crumble graham crackers for a beach camping scene.

Or add crumbled chocolate cereal and other additions for a forest camp site.

Or keep it simple with this variation, with a Captain Crunch camp fire, and floating candle bushes.

Please share a link to your own summer treats or S'mores creations in the comments below! I'd love to see more ideas for some kitchen fun this summer! :)


  1. What a fun idea. I bet your daughter LOVED making this.

    1. She loved dipping her fingers in the chocolate as we attempted to put everything together. :) It was a nice way to celebrate the start of our vacation together.

  2. Thanks for sharing at the Say G'day Saturday linky party. I've just pinned your post.

    Hope you can join us again this weekend.

    Best wishes,

    1. Thank you so much, Natasha. :) I didn't realize I was missing a link-back to your party, so I fixed that mistake after receiving your comment. =D


Let's start a conversation. Seeing comments makes me want to do a jig. I love hearing from you, so please remember to leave your mark here. :)
