S'more fun

Sorry.  I simply couldn't resist the pun.  Between a fun, new cook book Channing received from Kath by way of her recent Alaskan adventure and our June camping-themed Kiwi Crate, our afternoon was s'more fun than most.  

It's been a while since I let the kids have at it in the kitchen, giving into the inevitable mess and just enjoying their glee as I stand back and watch.  Today was one of those days.  There may have been a few spills, but the end result-ooey, gooey s'more-filled goodness.  Worth it.  So.  Worth.  It.  

And, as long as we were having campfire snacks, why not make an actual campfire, right?  This one was courtesy of Kiwi Crate.  I subscribed us for the summer months knowing there would be a rainy day here or there that needed a source of entertainment other than the iPad or TV.  June's crate theme:  Camping.

This was by far one of my favorite crates.  This campfire is well thought out.  There is a little fire ring made of clay and rocks.  The fire itself is a plastic cup and tissue paper.  It makes a cover for a flickering, battery-operated tea light.  With a skewer and a cotton ball, our indoor camping experience is complete.  

This kids are having a blast with them.  Although, poor Maxwellie keeps burning his marshmallows.  

Channing:  "Max!  Max!!  Your marshmallow is on fire!!!"

Maxwell:  [blowing]
