How do you make a S'more from Dollar Tree Craft Sticks?
To begin the Dollar Tree S'mores Kids Craft, gather all supplies. Measure three (3) jumbo craft sticks to five inches long with a ruler and pencil. Carefully cut the rounded ends off with scissors.
Basecoat the three trimmed jumbo craft sticks with Titanium White acrylic paint, these will become the marshmallow. Paint two whole jumbo craft sticks with Cocoa acrylic paint, these will become the graham crackers. Let dry the paint dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary. What can I use if I don't have acrylic craft paint? You can use washable markers, crayons, or even colored pencils to color the jumbo craft sticks. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Once dry, flip over the craft sticks on your work surface. Dry fit them with the three white craft sticks in the center and a tan craft stick on the top and the bottom. Assemble the craft stick s’more together by cutting down additional jumbo craft sticks and attaching them to the back with a glue gun and glue sticks. You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Download, print, and cut out the CRAFT STICK S’MORES PATTERNS below. Trace the melted chocolate pattern onto brown craft foam with a pencil and cut it out with scissors. Attach the chocolate to the s’mores between the top graham cracker and the marshmallow with a glue gun and glue sticks. Glue two large wiggle eyes to the marshmallow just under the chocolate.
Create cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser into Bubblegum Pink acrylic paint and stamping on either side of the s’mores marshmallow face. Draw a smile on each craft stick s’mores face from cheek to cheek with the MONO Twin Permanent Black Marker. To finish the Popsicle Stick S'mores Kids Craft, add dots to the top and bottom graham crackers with the MONO Twin. The MONO Twin is a versatile marker to craft with because it has a larger bullet tip and an extra fine tip, which makes it perfect for all types of applications.
Quick and Easy Craft Stick S'mores Camping Craft
Create this quick and easy Dollar Store Craft S’mores Craft with the kiddos to not only promote learning skills, but also to spark conversations about camping, snacks, and fire safety. This is also the perfect opportunity to get the supplies and make S'mores at home. You don't need a campfire to create S'mores at home, just make them in the microwave.
