This idea totally came from Sammy. He thought of the idea of making paper smores while we were making paper garland. And since I had just finished telling him that we could make ANYTHING out of paper, we had no choice but to do it!
- Glue (note the price tag: brand new bottle for $0.49 at Goodwill!)
- Corrogated cardboard (we used an old box on it's way to the recycle bin)
- Construction paper (white, brown, red, orange, yellow)
We started with the paper smores. I got out some graham crackers for reference.
Well, we couldn't just stop at the smores. Contrary to what some rediculous microwave smores contraption manufacturers lead you to believe, you CANNOT make s'mores without a fire pit. So, the paper fire pit is up next.
Next you'll need to get your base ready to glue the fire pit to.
Now to make this thing 3 dimensional!
Slide the pencil/pen out while holding the rolled paper together, taking care not to let the whole thing spring loose just yet.
Set it on the table and let go...it'll naturally want to spread out a bit.
While the glue is drying you can go gather some rocks.
We picked some small ones out of the landscaping in the front yard. You could use marbles too, or even make paper rocks too...cut circles, or crinkle up some scrap paper into little balls!
After we were done he requested that I make a paper gazebo (since we have a fire pit in the center of our gazebo), but unfortunately
