There’s always room for s’more!
We gave out these sweet DIY s’mores party favors at Colton’s Little Lumberjack birthday party. They were one of my favorite party details…and Colton’s too! He loved helping me assemble them.
I want to share a quick tutorial on how to make DIY s’mores kits for party favors, wedding favors, or just to brighten someone’s day.
These s’mores kits will make 2 s’mores apiece. For each s’mores kit, you’ll need 2 graham cracker sheets, 2 large marshmallows, 1/2 of a Hershey’s chocolate bar, a clear favor bag, and string/twine to tie the bag closed.
A quick tip regarding the chocolate bars: they will be much easier to break in half if they are cold, so put them in the refrigerator for a bit before you start this project. If they’re too warm, they might not break in the right place, plus you may end up with fingerprints in the chocolate. I learned this lesson the hard way, although Colton enjoyed snacking on the pieces with fingerprints! We also ended up with multiple graham crackers that did not break in the right spot, so if you’re a perfectionist, make sure you purchase extras to account for breakage.
You’ll probably also want to use a cute tag to make this treat even sweeter! The one I used is a free printable from Tatertots & Jello. There are tons of adorable (and free!) options out there, like this “S’more Love for Later” tag from Lolly Jane and this birthday favor option from Inspiration Made Simple. Or you could design your own tag with details of your special event!
Once you have your ingredients ready and tags cut out, it’s time to assemble. Of course, you can layer your ingredients any way you want in the bags. Experiment to see what you think looks the nicest. I found it worked best with my specific bags to do 2 graham cracker halves, chocolate, marshmallows, then the remaining 2 graham cracker halves. Tie the top together with twine or ribbon and don’t forget the tag!
Don’t forget to pin these instructions to make your own s’mores party favors!
Do you prefer DIY or store-bought party favors? What’s the best party favor you or your kids have ever received? As for Colton, I think his favorite favor to receive is candy… of course!
