Earth Day Solar S’mores
1 box Golden Grahams cereal

1 box Cookie Crisp cereal

1 box Organic Chocolate cereal

2 bags mini marshmallows

2 bags milk chocolate chips

In a large bowl, simply combine cereals, and stir in marshmallows. Fill individual plastic bags. Sprinkle about 1 Tablespoon of chocolate chips per bag. When ready to enjoy, explain the power of solar energy as bags are placed for several minutes in the sun until chips are melted. This is a fun learning experience to demonstrate ways we can re-power with radiant energy.  You may also make a Solar Oven by lining a recycled pizza box with aluminum foil to use solar heat to make traditional s’mores.
