Last year I made a s’mores kit for Jackson’s teacher. It was her very first year teaching, and while she received one large class gift that all the kids contributed to, he wanted to put together a little something just from him. Since then, we have made this gift box several more times; it’s been a summer party favour, part of a birthday present, and even a thank you gift.
To make the kit, I picked up a small (approx. 5” x 7”) wooden box at my local dollar store, and painted it with a light acrylic green paint. We filled the box with a package of homemade marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate squares. Because we weren’t sure of the teacher’s summer plans, we included the directions for making s’mores in the microwave, oven and over a fire so she would be able to assemble them wherever she would be. I downloaded a cute campfire font and used that for the recipe card, as well as the front cover of the gift box.
Any plans to visit friends at their cottage this year? I would definitely take up a few of these boxes to leave behind as a thank you for hosting you and your noisy kids!
