Step 1

Measure and cut three jumbo craft sticks to five inches long. Cut off the rounded ends in a straight line with scissors.

Step 2

Paint the three popsicle sticks with white paint. These will become the marshmallow.

Allow to dry and apply a second coat, if needed.

Paint the two jumbo craft sticks that have rounded ends with tan paint. These will become the graham crackers.

Let dry and apply a second coat, if needed.

If you don’t want to use paint, you could use washable markers to color the sticks.

Step 3

Once the popsicle sticks are dry, flip over the craft sticks with the painted sides down.

Place the three white craft sticks on top of each other. Then, add a tan craft stick on the top and the bottom of the white popsicle stick marshmallow. Glue together along the edges.

Now, cut two additional jumbo craft sticks to fit along the back of the s’mores. You want the sticks to be perpendicular to the marshmallow and graham cracker craft sticks. Glue down to stabilize the back.
