Last Day of School – S’mores Kits 0

June 16, 2011

 

I put together a few of these S’mores kits for Ian to give to his teachers at his last day of school.  Just adorable, right?  I wish I could take credit for this fun idea but I actually spotted this here.  I just modified a bit by making the kits family size (4 S’mores in each kit) so his dear teachers could enjoy with their families :-)

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Eu preparei alguns kits de S’mores como esse na foto acima para o Ian dar para as professoras dele no ultimo dia de escola. Não e uma graça?  Infelizmente essa ideia brilhante não foi minha, eu achei aqui.  So modifiquei o tamanho dos kits (4 S’mores em cada kit) para as que professoras dele pudessem disfrutar com as suas familias :-)

S’mores:  uma “sobremesa”, normalmente é feita a noite, quando sentamos ao redor de uma fogueira durante as féria de verão.  Bem tradicional em acampamentos americanos e além de ser uma delícia, a maneira de preparar é muito divertida.  Apreenda come fazer S’mores aqui.
