Solar S’mores

October 20, 2009

They can't all be winners.

This really isn’t so much a post as it is, “I need to go to bed and these are the photos I have on hand”.

For snack the other day we were given graham crackers, marshmallow creme, and chocolate chips. We could have just eaten them separately, or had crunchy bits in a s’more-type sandwich, but I chose to show the children (booming voice) The Power Of The Sun and left the chocolate on the windowsill to melt it. This lesson can also be learned by (booming voice) Leaving A Snickers In A Hot Car.

Mmm.... a delicious mess ahead

    Delicious indeed! Maybe I’ll have some chocolate for breakfast. Wait! I do that every morning! Woo hoo!

    I’m impressed! How long did you have to leave the chocolate chips on the windowsill before they were spreadable?

    What a super cool lesson! Oh to be in pre-school again!

    But you know, I don’t care for S’mores…I guess that official makes me a freak. I LOVE chocolate & marshmallows. And marshmallows dipped in melted chocolate, as in fondue, I’d be willing to get in a fist fight for some of that. In S’mores…I guess it’s the graham crackers that throws it off for me.

    So can you roast marshmellows in the window too? Maybe….if you put the marshmellows in a foil lined box and put it next to the window? Or use a magnifying glass? I am sure someone has done this before.

    I think the parent that sent that for a snack must not like you. Marshmallow cream and a classroom of 4-year-olds? Are you kidding me?!

      Heh. To be fair, it came from the kitchen, and we had an incredibly small group of children to do this with thanks to the many germs making the rounds in Seward. If I had to do it with 20 children, well, you’re right -- I wouldn’t do it.
