On Earth Day, April 22, come by anytime after school from 3-5  and join Recycle Man as we sing songs, win prizes, and plant wildflowers from the GA Forestry Commission.  Greet the FFA officers and order your copy of, the soon to be released,  FFA: Victory Garden Cookbook. After students enjoy vege and Hawaiian pizza’s given by Domino’s, Thomaston Scouts will recycle the pizza boxes to make solar ovens for Solar S’mores.  Come join the fun and celebrate What a Wonderful World.

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.
