Summer is the season of friends and family get-togethers. But if you’re anything like me, that summer fun can add a lot of stress too.
Before people set foot in my clean, but messy home – I have to do the following: Clean the house, prepare a menu, cook the food while keeping the house cool, figure out kids activities to prevent boredom, and the list goes on.
But about a year ago, I came up with an idea that bypasses most if not all of those steps…
The S’Mores Summer Fun Party
This concept spotlights the most fun aspect of camping – a campfire and s’mores – with the comfort of your own flushable toilet. Whohoo!
Here’s how it works:
- Invite your friends over for “S’More Summer Fun” to start after dark (aka, after dinner)
- Have all the ingredients needed to make s’mores – graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate and of course – marshmallows.
- Also be sure you have plenty of roasting sticks and disposable plates (pssst…hand washing melted marshmallow off from plates following the party sort of defeats the purpose).
- Finally – don’t forget the camp fire. Nothing compares to a rip-roaring wood campfire – and the metal campfire rings are inexpensive at most hardware stores. If you don’t have one, use the money you would have spent on dinner to purchase one and prepare for summer-long fun.
Honestly, my family has done this more than once – and nobody’s been sad that we didn’t provide dinner. To help you set expectations, use this FREE S’More Summer Fun download.
These can be printed in color or black & white on any color paper. You can also print it on photo paper, or my favorite, fill in the details and take a pic on your phone before simply TEXTING the invite your friends!
Yep, that’s how I roll. Because moms today need practical ideas for our lives. The most important aspect of get-togethers is spending quality time TOGETHER. And the S’More Summer Fun Party does just that.
Much Love, H
