overview

make your very own portable solar oven! so fun to make a s’mores out in the sun with your friends!

30 minutes

maker checklist

  • 1 small pizza box
  • 2 sheets of aluminum foil
  • 1 sheet of black paper
  • transparency (office supply)
  • ruler and pencil
  • scissors and masking tape
  • skewer or thin dowel
  • s’mores ingredients

instructions

1

measure and mark a square on the top of your box, about 1 inch from each edge. cut 3 sides to make a flap.

2

line the inside of the flap and the bottom of the box with foil, taping the edges to keep it in place.

4

cover the opening in the box top with the transparency. tape into place on the inside, so that the entire opening is covered, like a window.

5

place a s’more on the black paper, close the lid, and prop open the flap. put it in a sunny spot and bake!

tip: position it so the sun bounces off the foil and into the oven. the heat becomes trapped inside and your s’mores bake!
