Next provide your child with crayons.

Have them color the graham crackers light brown and the chocolate square dark brown.

My kids drew dots and lines to make the graham crackers look more realistic.

They also might like to color both sides.

Once they have finished coloring, it’s time to cut!

Have your child cut out all 3 large squares. So, they will need to cut out the 2 graham crackers squares as well as the chocolate square.

Next, layer the top graham cracker on top of the chocolate. Glue it together using a bit of glue.

Then glue several cotton balls to represent the marshmallows to the other graham cracker.

You might like to pull the cotton balls apart a little to save on cotton balls and make it a little more fluffy.

Last, you will glue the two pieces of the s’more together. So your layers from the bottom will be graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate, and then graham cracker.

Pom poms could be used instead of cotton balls for this sweet treat.

Pieces could be traced onto construction paper as an easy way for toddlers to create these fun treats.
