S’more in a Solar Oven

Summer is hot. I mean, 34°C hot, if we’re lucky we might get a breeze. It’s too hot to cook over the stove let alone run the oven. Like hot enough to fry an egg? I don’t know about that, maybe we’ll try it on the next hot day. But I do know you can make s’mores out there.

We created a tin foil solar oven, using, you got it, tin foil. You might need cardboard and tape as well. If you happen to have a pizza box laying around that would be perfect to line with tin fold. We used two cookie sheets, tin foil and a chair. The foil wrapped itself nicely over the edges of the cookie sheets, and the chair kept the second cookie sheet standing up.

I bought a simple *S’more kit so that “pieces” didn’t go missing. It was the best way to plan ahead for this activity.

Make you s’more and place it in the “oven”.

We sat them out for about two hours, the girls played and splashed around watching for them too melt. We should have let them sit a little longed for the marshmallows to melt and little but we were inpatient if you can believe that.

Talk about a belly ache! And ruining one’s supper. But its summer, and they are only young once so why not have fun. I’m already thinking we might do it again when Austin has a friend or two over.

As it was we took care of them ourselves.
