Sunshine S'mores

One of the extra ideas in our sunshine unit was to make s'mores. It pains me to realize that it's hot enough to do that. We probably could have fried eggs too. Anyway, this morning we set out to test melting points and make tasty snacks.

We got them assembled inside and set them out on the picnic table. It didn't take very long at all before the chocolate was VERY melted. The marshmallows got a little softer but they didn't actually melt. We talked a little bit about heat and melting and why the chocolate was messier, but they didn't much care. I can't blame them. Those things were good!

I can't believe Sebastian actually ate it. It's the first time I've seen him do something really messy without complaining about needing to wipe up.

Our friend who used to come here a couple years ago dropped in to visit this morning. He was highly pleased to find that there were treats.

Snow White was quite perplexed to find all this chocolate running down her arm. I didn't get pictures of her licking it all off, but it was really funny to watch her try to make her tongue reach that far.

We ate them outside and wiped up as best we could, and then came inside and had spaghetti for lunch. There was a large ongoing conversation regarding all the laundry everybody's mommy would have to do tonight. Sorry 'bout that.

Generally Sebastian doesn't care about being messy if it involves chocolate!
