DIY S’Mores Kit

This post is sponsored by Bing. It’s the Summer of Doing!

This week I’m partnering with Bing for their Summer of Doing campaign. Here is a little interview they did with me. Each day there is a different theme and today is bonfiring. So I asked Alexis Birkmeyer to put together this DIY for me. A few years ago we stayed at a hotel down the coast and they gave away big s’mores kits for the families staying there. We could go out to the firepits and make s’mores to our hearts content. This kit would make an awesome gift for a party or a hostess gift. We created a free downloadable printable and Alexis even put together instructions to make your own wire marshmallow toasting forks that attach to the end of sticks. So all you have to do is fill up the kit.

Download the free printable label right here.

Complete instructions are after the jump.

Materials Needed: 9″ x 6″ x 6″ Gable Box, 4″ Clear Box, Free Printable Template, 1 Wire Coat Hanger per Toasting Fork, Wire Cutters, Pliers, Wooden Spoon or Stick, Graham Crackers, Chocolate Bars and Marshmallows

Step 1: Snip the longest section of the wire coat hanger out.
Step 2: In the middle of the wire, wrap a loop around the wooden spoon handle or stick.
Step 3: Bend the wire right outside the loop 90 degrees.
Step 4: About 2″ above your new bed, loop the end of the wire 3/4 of the way around the spoon. Bend the tail upright.
Step 5: Repeat with the other end of the wire.
Step 6: Voila! Your toasting fork should have enough spring to be held tight to the end of a stick you find at the bonfire by the three loops of wire.
Step 7: Repeat for as many toasting forks as you’d like.

(If you have time to wait or this DIY seems too daunting, you could also order this style of toasting fork right here.)

Step 8: Stick your labels on.
Step 9: Fill your clear box with marshmallows, and fill up your kit. You’re ready to go!

    We’ve been making s’mores kits for years. They’re especially great as hostess gifts for summer invites. BTW – your “summer of doing” link at the top doesn’t seem to be working. I get a bitty error message.

    What an awesome idea! Great gift for a camping family! You could also use a dowel rod in place of the wooden spoon:)

    What a splendid idea! We do quite a bit of camping and I bet the kids would love to pull out their own kit for S’mores!

    Hi Jordan, thanks for your many DIY idees and advice. Where do you get the kraft box, I can’t find anly online that is not just a plain box. I am actually in Paris, so if you have shop manes in Paris that would be just great!

    Oh this is too adorable! I had s’mores at a restaurant in DC once with a little tabletop fire. It was so much fun. This is even better, though, because s’mores belong outside. :)

    S’mores are always a good idea. And this kit makes them so much sweeter. Now… just need to find an industrial sized pack of graham crackers…

    Cute idea, but I wouldn’t use coat hangers. They can be coated with chemicals you may not want in your food. Even Girl Scouts don’t make marshmallow sticks like this any more. Use wooden dowels or purchase food grade marshmallow tongs instead.

  20. These look amazing!
