You can find people making s’mores pretty much everywhere during the summertime- around a campfire in the woods, a bonfire at the beach, in a backyard fire-pit and even over a gas stove. Here’s a fun DIY marshmallow roasting stick project that everyone will enjoy making this bonfire season!
You only need three things for this project: paint, paintbrushes, and wooden sticks. Wooden sticks can be easily found at a craft store. The ones that we used here are ½ cm thick and were a yard long. If you live or are camping in the woods, this project will be fun to do with tree branches too! First I ran all the sticks underwater to give them a quick wash and then I let them dry completely. We then cut each stick in half, leaving each about 18 inches long.
Now here’s the fun part: paint any design or pattern you’d like for your marshmallow stick. We used tons of bright colors for ours. On one end of the stick, make sure to leave some non-painted room for where you plan on sticking the marshmallow. I also left a section where we were going to hold the stick unpainted. Stick each marshmallow stick into Styrofoam to help make the drying process easier. Let the paint dry completely before using.
Obviously, we cannot resist S’mores!
Everyone gets a marshmallow stick that is uniquely their own and will make the bonfire and s’more experience even more special!
